Yes: Why wait? Emergency contraception is most effective when taken within 72hrs of unprotected sex but why wait until last minute. More importantly, see your FamilyDoc or GYN about some more regular form of birth control. Better yet, make him wrap it up each & every time to lower risk of sexually transmitted diseases, too.
