Hi im a sexually active 18 years old teen and just had an unprotected sex an hour ago.can i take postinor as a way to prevent pregnancy?does it will leave a long term effect on me such as having low chance to get pregnant in the future?
Thank you for choosing us to get an opinion regarding your health issues.
Based on your explanations, you are having doubts about postinor. I will give you the related information regarding this problem.
For your information, you should take one tablet as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. The sooner that you take the tablet, the more effective it is likely to be. It is best to take it immediately after you receive it. The first tablet should be taken no later than 72 hours after intercourse .
I hope I was able to answer your question today.
You can also have an online consultation with our doctors for more information and further treatments.
I hope this answer will help you. Thank you.
