  • how long after you had sex did you take it ?
    the longer you wait makes it less likely to work also i think you have to take it at most 3 days after
    i do hope things turn out the way you want

  • you only have a 48 hour window to take it from the day u had un protected sex. after 48 hours theres a chance it didnt work. its a pill to make sure egg dosent get fertilized once egg is set to go pill is useless ( that is what i have heard from a friend/pharacist. ) they do tell u its not an abortion pill so it wont work to abort, only to stop the fertilization if taken in time..i also agree take a test just in case and go from there..good luck..

  • yes you ahve 3 days
    and what it is for it isnt to stop fertilization but to stop the fertalized egg from sticking
    you actually in every period can have fertilized eggs that just didnt stick
    i wish you luck !
