Effects of Postinor 2 in Nigeria – A lot of people reading this article must have heard about Postinor 2 at least one time or the other. This is because it is a contraceptive pill that has become very familiar among youths, especially the ladies. As familiar with Postinor 2 and its use as many people are, they lack the true knowledge of what it actually does, how it should be used and its effects on the body.

Most people abuse Postinor 2 without really knowing its effects and some people even use it without knowing how to use it, when to use it and if they should even use it at all. For this, we will be discussing in details, the usage and effects of Postinor 2. You will find out if you should use Postinor 2, when you should use it and the effects of Postinor 2 on your body when it is abused.

What is Postinor 2?

Also popularly referred to as the “Morning After pill”, Postinor 2 is an emergency contraception pill used to prevent unsolicited or expected pregnancies, note the word “emergency”. Procured with 750 micrograms of Levonorgestrel and other ingredients such as Gelatin, Talc, Potato starch and so many on, Postinor 2 is a very effective contraceptive pill.

Can Postinor 2 prevent pregnancy?

It has been proven that Postinor 2 has the ability to prevent about 95% of expected pregnancies if used within 24 hours of unprotected sex and it could prevent 85% if used within 48- 72 hours of unprotected sex. However, it is also said that the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill dwindles as the hours after having unprotected sex increases.

In actuality, Postinor 2 has been confirmed to be more than 80% effective most of the time. Although not clinically proven, many scientists are of the opinion that Postinor 2 stops being effective after about 72 hours of unprotected sex which means that for Postinor 2 to actually work, it must be used within two to three days after having unprotected sex. Any other day after this and the effectiveness of Postinor 2 becomes less guaranteed.

Postinor 2 is meant to be used as an emergency contraception method and not a regular method of contraception. However, because many people who use Postinor 2 do not know this or choose to ignore it, it has been turned into a regular method of contraception. Some ladies even try to use Postinor 2 as an abortion method and they use it even when they have been confirmed to be pregnant.

The use of Postinor 2 as a regular contraception pill can result into many harmful and negative effects on the body unknown to ladies who use it. As effective as Postinor 2 has been proven to be, it however must not be used by everyone.

In short, there are some set of people that must not use Postinor 2 as a contraceptive pill due to the state of their health and other reasons. Because of their ignorance and the inability to take time out to find out about the suitability of this pill with their body before using it, some people continue to use it without knowing that it is causing more harm than good to their health and body as a whole.

For these set of people, using Postinor 2 results in even more complicated health conditions. Before using Postinor 2 as an emergency contraception method, people with similar health conditions to the ones we will be talking about below must have a prior consultation with their doctor.

Postinor 2 on Pregnant women

If you have been confirmed to be pregnant, you must not use Postinor 2 as it is meant to be used only as an emergency contraceptive method. This means that it is only meant to prevent expected pregnancies. Once an intercourse has resulted into pregnancy, the use of Postinor 2 must be halted.

Before using Postinor 2, you must also find out if you are allergic to any of the ingredients used in procuring it. This helps to prevent an allergic reaction on your body or health.

If you have also been taking other drugs before using Postinor 2, you must tell your doctor.

Using Postinor 2 with other drugs could even result to a drug interaction in your body.

  6. Vivian

    My menstrual cycle started yesterday and it’s not flowing well and the colour is dark so I went to a pharmacist and complained then he gave me postinor 2 and some other two drugs to take,that the menstrual cycle will normalize, so I refused taken it cos i have not had sex for the past five months,so pls my question is if postinor 2 can correct menstrual cycle or cure infection?

    • Detola Deedee

      My understanding of Postinor 2 is to stop pregnancy and not to correct menstrual cycle. Please check yourself into a hospital for proper check up and menstrual cycle monitoring. I hope you get well soon.
