You may still get pregnant if there is sexual intercourse after taking the pill. Ensure that you use a condom or any other type of birth control method if you have sexual intercourse after taking the emergency contraceptive pill.
If you forget to take the 2nd tablet 12 hours later, take it as soon as possible – do not delay taking the tablet. The tablet works best the sooner you take it after having unprotected sex. It can only prevent you from becoming pregnant, if you take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Please contact your healthcare professional if it is more than 72 hours.
When can I start my regular hormonal contraception after taking Postinor-2 (Levonorgestrel)?
You can continue or start any birth control method right away. For the next 7 days, you also must use a barrier method (for example: condoms, diaphragm, and spermicides) along with your regular birth control method, or not have sexual intercourse.
