How to take Postinor?
"Postinor" – a medicinal drug used in an "emergency" to prevent pregnancy. Its main active ingredient, the hormone levonorgestrel. It stops the action of the female hormones responsible for the conception and implementation of the egg in the wall of the uterus – progesterone and estrogen.
Unfortunately, pregnancy after using "Postinor" can occur in 15 cases out of 100.
The pharmacological properties and recommendations for use
Pregnancy test after receiving the "Postinor" may be positive, although the manual says that synthetic analogue of levonorgestrel expressed the contraceptive effect.
If you take the drug immediately after unprotected sex or failure of other contraceptive methods or within 72 hours, the yield of the follicle and the promotion of it through the fallopian tube is interrupted. If the woman was in the second phase of the menstrual cycle, and healthy follicles was found with sperm and prepares to infiltrate the uterine wall, the active substance inhibits the change of the endometrium, and pregnancy will not occur.
However, the more time has passed since intercourse, the less capacity has the cure. If in the first hours it works in 95 cases out of a hundred, then 2 days – only 70.
If a woman's menstrual cycle is unstable, then before consuming the medication she needs to take a pregnancy test. It may be that the pregnancy is already there, and receive "Postinor" affect it can not, but the failure of the hormonal system, and side effects cause.
Side effects when using contraceptives
Even if the drug did not work, after "Postinor" no consequences for pregnancy will not occur. But the woman's body is hypersensitive to answer the drug – even if it was used at the time and their specified properties has paid off and allergic reaction.
You may experience the following side effects when using contraceptives:
- disorder of the menstrual cycle;
- very often there is bleeding;
- when receiving in the second phase of the cycle could be an ectopic pregnancy.
This does not mean that the drug is bad or "old". Any modern hormonal means by which you are planning pregnancy, can cause similar effects.
Despite the relatively high level of development of modern medicine, it is certainly impossible to establish which hormones in what quantity at a certain point, the body produces female performance analysis is quite subjective. Therefore, the change of hormonal balance in one direction or another can have a negative impact on the overall condition.
If the rough "interfere" in the work of the body, the consequences are impossible to predict.
Possibility of pregnancy after "Postinora" can explain the individual response of the organism to the additional input of hormones or particular phase of the cycle.
The nuances of drug
Approximately in the middle of the menstrual cycle, the ripened egg is "hatched" out of the follicle and moves into the uterus through the fallopian tube, waiting for a meeting with sperm.
At this time, it will not affect any hormones – including input from the outside.
If the meeting with the sperm occurred at an early stage, drank the medicine, 2 times – as it should be according to instructions – then to the egg it will not come. Those few days, while the egg descends into the uterus, it is in the offline state. When it comes to goal – medications will end.
Even bleeding after "Postinor" does not exclude the onset of pregnancy, as 20% of normal pregnancies in the first trimester menstruation come regularly – although by nature they are scarce.
Therefore, when the delay of up to 5-7 days, even if then came the spotting, you need to buy a pregnancy test and get checked out, to be sure, to be sure the danger had passed.
There is a risk of ectopic pregnancy after "Postinor"when did you take a pill in the most dangerous period – during a routine of ovulation. The action of levonorgestrel is not allowed fertilized egg out of the fallopian tubes, but because the fertilization has already occurred, stop the process impossible. In this case, the embryo will begin to develop in the fallopian tube .
If the test showed an unwanted pregnancy, you should immediately see a gynecologist. State after receiving the contraceptive drug need to assess the doctor. The risk of ectopic pregnancy exists, therefore, the earlier you begin therapeutic activities, the more chances to preserve the integrity of the pipe.
The drug proved ineffective
If the drug proved ineffective, and conception occurred, women often decide to keep it. To decide on an abortion in such a situation, it is difficult mentally – future baby is to the embryonic stage deserve the right to life.
Now the woman concerned is not harmed if receiving "Postinor" future baby if the mother's body unfavorable changes that will affect fetal development?
The body is cleansed of elements of the "Postinor" for 26 hours, during this time, the egg just manages to descend into the uterus. The tab systems of the embryo starts in the next phase, and no effects on the fetus the drug will not have.
Caution – danger to life!

Because teenagers have a hormonal balance is not yet installed, even one use – a blow to the body a dose of levonorgestrel – can permanently bring down the menstrual cycle and even to take the girl to experience the joy of motherhood.
