Postinor 1 and Postinor are two forms of the same thing: birth control pills that are taken after having unprotected sex, to prevent pregnancy. Both of these pills contain levonorgestrel, which prevents ovulation and impairs sperm motility and viability by causing changes in the uterus and cervical mucus, among other effects. That means that no egg will be released from the ovary, and the sperm can’t reach the egg in order to fertilize it.
Postinor 1 and Postinor are both brands of emergency contraception (more commonly known as the morning after pill). It’s made up of levonorgestrel, which prevents fertilization by preventing ovulation or fertilization from occurring, and it may also prevent attachment (implantation) to the uterus. It works best if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, but it can still be effective up to 120 hours later.
What are they?
With so many birth control methods available, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. Most people are aware of some form of contraception—but are they all as reliable as they claim? One pill, in particular, has been subject to a lot of controversies due to its name: postinor. It’s possible that you’ve heard about postinor but may not have known that there are actually two different kinds: Postinor 1 and Postinor 2. If you’re trying to decide which is best for you, read on for a brief comparison.
Who should use it?
In case of contraceptive failure, women who have been trying to conceive for over 6 months and who have been advised by a doctor that they have an increased risk of pregnancy. (You will not be able to buy postinor 1 without a prescription from your doctor.) (Postinor-1 packaging). For routine contraception, it is unsuitable because it must be taken within 120 hours after intercourse. Both types should not be used continuously as there is evidence that it can increase your risk of getting a blood clot or having an ectopic pregnancy in later pregnancies. This emergency contraceptive can also occasionally cause nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain when taken for emergency contraception. You will need a prescription from your doctor before you purchase postinor-1.
Who shouldn’t use it?
Some women with a history of ectopic pregnancy should avoid using Postinor 1. This includes women who have had surgery to repair an ovarian cyst or remove an ovary (an oophorectomy), or who have endometriosis that doesn’t resolve after treatment. These cases of health issues should be discussed with your doctor before using hormonal birth control.
How do I take them (dosage)?
Postinor can be taken in a similar way as regular birth control. Once you decide that you want to go ahead with using either version of the pill, it should be inserted at least 5 hours before sexual intercourse. It is preferable that it should be taken on an empty stomach because if there are any foodstuffs present in your stomach, they can reduce its effectiveness. You will have to insert it between 15-20 minutes before sex so that it is already active by then. For those of you who wish to use postinor for emergency purposes only, note that it will have little or no effect if inserted more than 5 hours after intercourse or 10 hours after unprotected sex has occurred.
How soon will it be effective?
The effectiveness of both depends on how soon after unprotected sex you take it. The sooner you take it, the better your chances for preventing pregnancy. If you have an emergency contraceptive with you when you have unprotected sex, take it as soon as possible. It’s most effective when taken within 24 hours (1 day) of having unprotected sex. The sooner Postinor is taken after unprotected sex, however, the more likely you are to get pregnant from a single act of intercourse. This is why prevention is so important in any sexual relationship: because many factors can make something that seems like a safe decision—not using protection—not such a good one.

Are there any major differences between postinor and postinor1 in terms of effects etc.?
So firstly, we’ll explain what these birth control pills are. Both postinor1 and postinor are types of emergency contraception (EC) methods that can be used after unprotected intercourse in order to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. The main difference between postinor1 and postinor is that one pill contains levonorgestrel while another contains a combination of levonorgestrel with Ethinyl estradiol. What does that mean for you? In terms of effects, both pills work well as EC methods; however, there might be differences in side effects associated with each type. For example, some people have reported nausea or headaches when taking postinor1 compared to those who took just levonorgestrel for EC purposes.
Is it safe during breastfeeding/pregnancy or while using other forms of contraception?
It is generally safe for women who are breastfeeding or pregnant, as well as those who use other forms of contraception. Women who have an allergy to levonorgestrel (the active ingredient in these pills) should not take these pills. These pills work by causing a thin mucus that prevents sperm from entering your uterus. While there is no evidence that they harm your baby while you are breastfeeding, it is best not to use them while breastfeeding because you will be introducing foreign hormones into your body that may make it harder for you to become pregnant once you stop using them. Breastfeeding provides many health benefits for mothers and babies so nursing mothers should talk with their healthcare provider before taking these or any other medications during breastfeeding.
