Couples who desire to practice proper methods of family planning or contraception have been advised to discuss with their doctor rather than taking pills like Postinor 2 as a regular contraceptive.

This advice was given by an Osogbo-based family physician, Dr. Esther Oke, in a chat with Press on Sunday.

Dr. Oke stated that amongst couples, getting pregnant is a condition to be desired but family planning is also advisable in order to properly space the birth of children in light of the prevailing economic situation in the country.

According to her, “Know this. Postinor 2 taken within the first 72 hours of unprotected sex will prevent only 85% of pregnancies.
