Postinor is an emergency contraceptive and can be used to prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of sexual intercourse. The earlier it is taken, the more reliable the effect.
This emergency contraception method is for occasional use. In no way it replaces usual methods of contraception and also does not prevent pregnancy in every case.
