Hi, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend the day before yesterday...I took Postinor 2 about 30 minutes after we had sex but I took both tablets at once. I didn't notice I was supposed to take the tablets 12 hours apart. Does this affect its effectiveness? should I take another tablet now even if its more than 12 hours later? And another question is does:I had a few glasses of wine last night (a day after taking the tablets) does this change its effectiveness? Please Help!!

Please be patient! We are all volunteers who do this for free and we have outside lives and responsibilities (I myself am sick right now).

You do not need to take another tablet. It should be fine that you took them both at the same time. It is often better to take the doses separately because you are at less risk to have side effects because the dosage is spread out. However, based on what I've found online I don't see any indications that this should impact effectiveness or that you should take any extra. You may wish to call your doctor or pharmacist to verify this though.
