No!: Sounds a little bit like overkill! If you had intercourse 10 days before your period (day 18 of cycle), you probably already missed your fertile/ovulation period. Then you were using condoms, you took emergency contraception, and you got your period. It sounds like you are REALLY concerned about getting pregnant. Taking emergency pills repeatedly a bad idea. Pursue reliable regular contraception!!
