In brief: Most likely
The sooner you take the morning after pill after unprotected intercourse the better. It reduces the chances of getting pregnant by up to 89% if you take it within the first 72 hours after sex, and continues to decrease the risk for up to 120 hours.
It works best the sooner you take it. Read more about it here: http://bit.Ly/lonelh.
