Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The emergency contraception gives you protection for the act done before taking it. There is no documented proof that it provides protection even after taking it and having unprotected intercourse. Discuss with your gynecologist/obstetrician about it before taking any action. Consider getting started on regular birth control if you are not ready for baby. Taking high doses of contraceptives (emergency pills) often can be dangerous to your health.
Take care.
