I had sex on Friday and on Saturday I was ovulating, and I also took norlevo pills on Saturday aswell, will they help me, prevent me from being pregn?

I had sex on Friday and on Saturday I was ovulating, and I also took norlevo pills on Saturday aswell, will they help me,  prevent me from being pregn?

Quite likely: The medication you took and the time with respect to sex, should provide about 95% protection from pregnancy. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.

One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because "morning after" pills work most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more
