How does postinor

Postinor unlike hormonal contraceptives which are taken on a regular basis and contain two kinds of sex hormones is composed of only one sex hormone levonorgestrel - a synthetic analogue of progesterone, but at a very high dose (750 ug, whereas in hormonal contraceptives type mini -pili it contains 30 micrograms). As a result, a woman after taking Postinor gets a real kick hormones and then recovering the body for a long time and "licking the wounds inflicted."

Postinor is only for emergency cases - rape or some unexpected complications in the application of permanent contraception (eg, condom broke).

Take it better supervised and prescribed by a doctor - that is done in developed countries, there postinor sold in pharmacies by prescription. In this case, a single dose of Postinor usually does not threaten.

But it is very dangerous to self uncontrolled use of emergency contraception. For example, some women take postinor every month or sporadically, but still often enough. This can cause a persistent violation of ovarian function, which will certainly lead to infertility.

Often for such a use of the drug pushing women shameless advertising, which postinor represented as completely safe for the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. Every woman should know: all the drugs that can prevent or terminate pregnancy, dangerous, they should be prescribed only by a doctor. This applies even to low-dose hormonal contraceptives, which are accepted on an ongoing basis, and only for the drugs for emergency prevention of pregnancy, which contain large doses of hormones, it should be mandatory twice. Otherwise, a number of dangers lurking woman.

Danger One - uterine bleeding

The role of natural progesterone during the menstrual cycle is that it supports overgrown in the first half of the menstrual cycle under the influence of estrogens mucous membrane of the uterus and makes it the secret to allocate necessary for development of pregnancy. Once progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
   It ceases to be allocated (the signal is the lack of pregnancy) the mucous membrane of the uterus is torn away and menstruation begins.

Now imagine that the progesterone (or its synthetic analog) received in the body several times larger than necessary. Followed by cutting open his admission can cause heavy bleeding, which in some cases requires emergency medical care. If you take Postinor often enough, persistent uterine bleeding Uterine bleeding outside of menstruation - a sign of a serious breach  Uterine bleeding outside of menstruation - a sign of a serious breach
   can lead to iron deficiency anemia and a sharp depletion of the body.

Risk of second - dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea and infertility

Gradually, under the influence of "hormonal strikes" ovarian function begins to dwindle and they produce fewer own hormones such as progesterone and estrogen, which occurs as a result of persistent infertility. Menstruation can take first irregular and accompanied by severe pain (dysmenorrhea), and then they are becoming more scarce or disappear altogether (amenorrhea). It is a formidable attribute that indicates the presence of a woman's fertility. Timely access to a doctor will allow some women to restore fertility, but sometimes such treatment is ineffective.

It is especially dangerous to use postinor Postinor - used very carefully!  Postinor - used very carefully!
   in adolescence, when the function of the ovary is just being formed.

In this case, infertility is often formed and virtually untreatable. Therefore, in the instructions to the drug makes it clear that it is contraindicated under the age of 16 years. In the case of the rape of the girl decision making should take Postinor doctor.

Do not take Postinor and women with any menstrual irregularities that indicate inadequate function of the ovaries. Such women often enough a "hormonal blow" to cause lasting pronounced a failure of the menstrual cycle and infertility. Therefore, it is not recommended to take Postinor even in cases of emergency.

Postinor - a quality product for emergency prevention of unwanted pregnancies, but it should not be taken by women on their own and even more often - this can lead to unpredictable consequences.
