Thanks dr. Jane van dis, i took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex.So how will be the pregnancy chance?
Timing is everything: It looks as if you took the pill very quickly. So your chances at preventing pregnancy are good. Likely you have a 60-75% chance of preventing a pregnancy. This assumes, by the way, that were ovulating when you had the unprotected intercourse, and were going to get pregnant.

There are easier, more effective, nondaily methods for birth control you may want to consider such as an IUD, Nexplanon or Nuvaring ...Read more

Maybe another physician will know what this is. ...Read more
