In brief: Emergency contracept

Yes there are several products available to be taken within 48 hours of possible pregnancy to attempt to prevent this.
Plan b, preven, or ulipristol (which can be effective up to 5 days after intercourse). Emergen is actually a vitamin supplement which is not likely to prevent pregnancy. Good luck.
