Let me explain further. I saw my period on 28th February, I had sex with my boyfriend without protection on 10th March and I took the first tablet of postenor2 within 5 hours of the intercourse but totally forgot to take the second tablet of postenor2.

Please I am worried about getting pregnant. I want to know if the first tablet is enough to prevent pregnancy. I need answers please.

No, unfortunately just the first pill is not enough to prevent getting pregnant. Both pills are needed to stop ovulation. Most pills today combine both dosages into one single pill for just this reason

The chances that you will be pregnant is about 1 out of 3.

If your next period does not arrive, you can take a pregnancy test 21 days after the sex. Repeat the test a week later to confirm the results.
