Hello and good evening. Thank you for your questions.

For your information, the medication you mentioned is an emergency contraceptive pill and can be taken up within 72 hours of unprotected sex with its agreeable effectiveness as for your contraceptioin. So if you taken the pill within 72 hours after sex, you will be protected from pregnancy.

To know the effectiveness of the pill, we suggest that you observe your menstrual cycle. If menstrual bleeding do come out anytime around the expected date of menses (like a normal period), it means that the pill is working effectively.

Your period late? Get a confirmation and don’t be in the dark anymore.
