The I-pill is 75% effective. If she was not in the fertile window cycle days 8 thru 16 of 28 she would be safe anyway. The I-pill will likely affect the timing of her next menstruation.

Feb 23 to Mar 5 puts you at cycle day 11. She probably ovulates tomorrow Tuesday so she was in the fertile window. Keep your fingers crossed that the I-pill does its work. If you decide to run a home pregnancy test, save it until her next period is due. She may end up with an i-pill bleed before that time.

If you have already taken the emergency contraceptive, then there is no need to worry that you will be pregnant, and also there is no need to use the pill for every act of intercourse.

Taking emergency contraceptive pills should be only in case, when you are supposed to be in the unsafe or ovulatory phase of the cycle. Taking the pill outside of this period (as in your case) does not provide any use.

In addition, Some common side effects of emergency contraception include menstrual irregularities including delayed or missed periods, reduced or increased menstrual flow, change in pattern of cycles, etc.

But since, these effects are short lived and resolve on their own and no treatment is needed, you just need to relax and stop worrying that you might be pregnant.

In the future, if you plan to be sexually active on a regular basis, you should be a responsible adult and have knowledge about reproductive health (sex education) and how to avoid issues like unwanted pregnancies.

It would be recommended to adopt a proper contraceptive method like Birth control or injectable Hormones or Intrauterine devices to protect against pregnancy. Dependence on ECP (emergency contraceptive pills) as a regular contraceptive is not recommended.

I hope this helps.

Hi,
Actually the emergency contraceptive pill is recommended for using after an unprotected exposure.Thus it is termed postcoital contraception or morning after pill. One of its mechanism of action is to delay the ovulation so in the meantime the sperm will lose their potency to fertilize. This is actually the mode of action if you take this pill in early phase of cycle. So,as you can see,the pill doesnot give you any gurantee of contraception if you again have an unprotected sex after taking this pill. In that case, obviously you will have to take another pill as postcoital contraception if you need an complete assurance.
