Postinor 2 is an emergency contraceptive pill used to prevent pregnancy in women after sex.
It's used alongside other labels like LEVO-72, TRUSTON 2 and EMCON.
In terms of pharmaceuticals, it's a progesterone whose main effect is to make cervical mucus impermeable to sperms by acting on it. It also prevents ovulation, but it can't stop an already fertilized ovum from implanting, so it's unsuccessful in these cases.
Unfortunately, it fails more often than the combined oral contraceptives such as microgynon, Diane 35, and Yasmin.
Here are some key points to remember:
a) Cancer dangers
It's been debated, and here's what we know right now. P-2 has been clinically proven to protect women from endometrial and ovarian cancer, but it also raises their risk of breast cancer.
b) The prevention of STDs
P-2 does not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases or infection of any form. To avoid the dangers, proper protection can and must be used.
c) Failure of P-2
A dose of emergency contraceptive pills is considered to prevent pregnancy 50-100 percent of the time.
However, it may fail in some cases due to:
1. insufficient ovulation timing
2.Body mass index (BMI)
-Emergency contraceptive pills are less safe for people with a BMI of 30 or higher, according to recent reports.
3.Interactions with other medications
- this pill should not be taken with HIV medications, Rifampin, Felbamate, or Phenytoin.
- Pharmacists should include guidance on drug-related allergies as well as specific information on how to deal with allergies.
- Limiting alcoholic drinks because the medication causes dizziness, so one can avoid doing something that requires alertness until he or she is sure they can do it safely.
-They should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding and should be discussed with a doctor before doing so.
