Postinor Duo 75mg. 2 tablets

What is Postinor-Duo and what is it used for?
Postinor-Duo is an emergency contraceptive that is used after unprotected intercourse or when a contraceptive method is not applied. This type of contraception is often called the "next morning tablet".
Postinor-Duo prevents about 84% of expected pregnancies when two tablets are taken at the same time within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected intercourse. Postinor-Duo does not prevent pregnancy in any case:
• Tablets are more effective when they are taken rather than unprotected sexual intercourse
• This means it is better to take the tablets for up to one day (24 hours) after unprotected intercourse than to delay their intake until the third day (between 48 and 72 hours) after unprotected intercourse.
Poshonor-Duo's performance takes place as:
• stops oving from ovaries;
• prevents the sperm fertilization of already separated ova;
Therefore, Postinor-Duo stops the pregnancy before it occurs. The tablet does not work if you are already pregnant.
Postinor-Duo can help prevent pregnancy, but you should take the two tablets as soon as possible and no later than 72 hours (three days) after unprotected intercourse.
2. What do you need to know before taking Postinor-Duo?
Please ask your pharmacist before taking this medicine as urgent contraception may not be appropriate for you.
If you are under 16, you should visit your doctor to get emergency contraception.
Postinor-Duo can be taken at any time on the menstrual cycle unless there is a delay in the onset of menstruation. If the onset of menstruation is delayed, you should consult your pharmacist.
Before you take this medicine, your pharmacist can check if you are pregnant by asking questions about your period or when you have had a sexual intercourse. If you or your pharmacist think you may be pregnant, you should take a pregnancy test.
Do not take Postinor-Duo:
• if you are allergic to the active substance or to any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
Warnings and precautions
If any of these apply to you, tell your doctor before taking Posinor-Duo, as urgent contraception may not be suitable for you. Your doctor may prescribe another type of emergency contraception.
• if you have small bowel disease (eg Crohn's disease), which is detrimental to digestion;
• if you suffer from severe liver disease;
• if you are taking any of the medicines listed below, as these medicines may prevent Posistor-Duo from acting properly:
- barbiturates and other medicines used to treat epilepsy (for example, primidone, phenytoin and carbamazepine);
- medicines used to treat tuberculosis (for example, rifampicin, rifabutin);
- treating HIV infection (for example, ritonavir); a medicine used to treat fungal infections (e.g., griseofulvin);
- herbal products containing St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum);
• if you are taking a medicine called cyclosporin (used to help the immune system).
In all women, urgent contraception should be taken as soon as possible after sexual intercourse without any precautionary measures. There is some evidence that Posinor-Duo may be less effective with body weight or body mass index (BMI), but these data are limited and inconclusive. Therefore, Postinor-Duo is nevertheless recommended for all women regardless of their weight or BMI.
We advise you to talk to a healthcare professional if you are concerned about any problems associated with the use of emergency contraception.
Other medications and Postinor-Duo
Tell your pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.
Some medications may prevent Posinor-Duo from acting properly, including:
- barbiturates and other medicines used to treat epilepsy (for example, primidone, phenytoin and carbamazepine)
- medicines used to treat tuberculosis (eg rifampicin, rifabutin)
- treatment of HIV infection (ritonavir, efavirenz), a medicine used to treat fungal infections (griseofulvin), herbal products containing St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) called ciclosporin (suppressing the immune system).
Check with a doctor or pharmacist before using Postelon-Duo if you are taking any of the above medicines.
Pregnancy, breastfeeding and fertility
Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
Pregnancy
You should not take this medicine if you are already pregnant. If you become pregnant, even after taking this medicine, it is important that you consult your doctor. There is no evidence that Postinor-Duo will harm the baby that develops in your uterus if you use Postinore-Duo as described. However, your doctor may want to make sure that the pregnancy is not ectopic (when the baby develops outside the uterus). This is extremely important if severe abdominal pain occurs after receiving Posinor-Duo or if you have had an ectopic pregnancy, a fallopian tube surgery or a pelvic inflammatory disease in the past.
Breastfeeding
Very small amounts of the active ingredient of this medicine may be contained in breast milk. It is thought that this is not dangerous for the baby, but if you are worried, you may take the tablet immediately after breastfeeding and avoid breastfeeding for at least 8 hours after taking a tablet. This way, you take the tablet long enough before the next breastfeeding and thus reduce the amount of active ingredient the baby can take with the breast milk.
Fertility
Postinor-Duo increases the possibility of cycle violations, which can sometimes lead to an earlier or later ovulation date. These changes may lead to changes in fertility, although there is no evidence in the long run.
Driving and using machines
Posistor-Duo tablet is unlikely to affect your ability to drive or use machines. However, if you feel tired or dizzy, do not drive or operate machinery.
If you are worried about sexually transmitted diseases
If you have not used a condom (or if it has broken or slipped out) during sexual intercourse, it is possible that you have a sexually transmitted disease or H1V virus. This medicine will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases, only condoms can do so. Ask your doctor, pharmacist, or family planning clinic if you are worried about it.
Postinor-Duo tablets contain lactose monohydrate and this should be taken into consideration if you have lactose intolerance.
If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product.
3. How to take Postinor-Duo?
Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. If you are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
• Take the two tablets as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours after unprotected intercourse, but no later than 72 hours (3 days) thereafter. Swallow each tablet whole with a little water if necessary. Do not delay taking the tablets. Their action is safer, the earlier you take them after
• unprotected intercourse.
• If you are already using a regular contraceptive method as contraceptive pills, you can continue to take them at the usual time.
How often can you take Postinor-Duo?
Posinor-Duo is only used in emergency situations and is not used as a regular contraceptive method. If you take Postinor-Duo more than once between two menstruations, it is very likely that a menstrual cycle disorder occurs.
Postinor-Duo does not work as regular methods of contraception. Your doctor may explain to you what more effective methods of long-term contraception exist to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
What to do if you are unwell (vomiting)
• If you are sick (vomiting) within three hours of taking the first tablet, you must immediately take the second tablet in the pack. You should immediately contact your pharmacist, doctor or family planning clinic.
• If you are sick (vomiting) within three hours of taking the second tablet, you should contact your pharmacist, doctor or family planning clinic immediately as the tablets may not have worked properly.
If you take more Dosinor-Duo than you should
Although there is no evidence of serious complications due to the intake of too many tablets at one time, it can
If you forget to take a tablet
You should take both tablets in the pack (as described above) and leave an interval of not more than 16 hours (preferably 12 hours) between tablet intake.
• If you are late on taking the second tablet (longer than 16 hours), move it as soon as you remember and consult your pharmacist, doctor or family planning clinic as soon as possible.
Once you have received the Pasteur-Duo
After taking Postinor-Duo, if you intend to have sexual intercourse and do not use contraceptive pills, you should use a condom or diaphragm and a spermicide cream. This is necessary because Postinore-Duo will not work if you have unprotected intercourse again before the next menstruation.
It is advised to consult your doctor about three weeks after you have taken Pasteur-Duo to make sure that the tablets have worked. If your period is delayed by more than 5 days or is abnormally low or abundant, talk to your doctor as soon as possible. If you become pregnant, even after you have taken this medicine, it is very important to consult your doctor.
Your doctor may also explain to you what methods of long-term contraception exist that are more effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy.
If you continue to use a regular hormonal contraceptive method, contraceptive tablets and no bleeding during the period without taking tablets, you should check with your doctor to make sure you are not pregnant.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
