Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Yes.There should not be any loss of contraceptive efficaccy as you have acted accordingly.There is no risk of getting pregnant following an unprotected sex on 9 th day provided you are otherwise a regular user.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
