What happens when one takes an emergency pill twice in one cycle?

Hope it works: There shouldn't be any problems with taking it twice. What you have to remember is that emergency contraception works for that one time, not for an entire cycle. Some people think is "works" for an entire month. Not true. Use it twice if you need it. But consider getting a better method of contraception like an iud.
