Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Yes the Postinor Will still work.

Dr Owen :

Here is how you can take the Postinor and it sill works the SAME...

Dr Owen :

You can take All the pills at once, or you can take the pills separated by 12 to 24 hours later from the first dose.

Dr Owen :

So, YES the Postinor will work.

Dr Owen :

And, Now if you are past 14 days since you had sex - do a Pregnancy test - it should be accurate and use a Good Name Brand test such Clear Blue, EPT, or First Response - as these are very good pregnancy tests that are very accurate.
