Postinor 2 - delay ovulation

How is it that most women who take postinor 2 before ovulation and it delays the ovulation, get their periods on time or earlier? How long does this delayed ovulation lasts? Thank You :)

Hello,
The primary mechanism of emergency contraception is delaying ovulation. There may be temporary disruption of menstrual cycle. This can manifest as early or late periods, spotting or breakthrough bleeding. Menstruation usually occurs on an average about 14 days after ovulation. So delayed ovulation may result in delayed periods. Suppression of ovulation may cause anovulatory bleeding which manifests as early period. Do write to us again with more queries.
Best of luck and regards!
