Can I take birth control pills as emergency contraception
Patient :I have been off birth control for almost a year but I still have a pack leftover. I was taking tri-sprintec. I had sex about 7 hours ago and used the "pull out" method but I do not think he pulled out in time. I read online you can take 4 birth control pills and then another 4 pills 12 hours later as the form of emergency contraception. I took 4 pills already but now I am not sure if this will work. I don't know what to do
