Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. For your information, hormonal emergency contraception or morning after pills works by several mechanism depending on the women’s cycle at that particular time. It can inhibit ovulation, interact with sperm and ovum transportation and also fertilization.

Hence, the time of when the pills was taken during the cycle won’t effect its efficacy but when the pills was taken after the unprotected sex. It is estimated that emergency contraception will prevent 95% of pregnancies if taken within the first 24 hours, down to 58% if taken between 48 hours and 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.
