Hi i had unprotected sax with my boyfriend on thursday. at 2:30 pm i took the first tablet of postinor 2, i was suppose to take the other one at 2:30 am, i don't know if u are familiar with this pill, but would the tablet be ineffective if i took it after the 12 hr interval, i took the tablet 15 hrs after?

User avatar Hello,
You should still have good protection. It's not 100% but the time interval should not be worrisome.

Good luck.
