Emergency Contraceptives

Patient : This question pertains to emergency contraceptives. I took the "morning after pill" about 16 hours after having unprotected sex. I know this is fine however, after taking the pill (approximately 2 hours later) I had unprotected sex again. Thus I am concerned whether I need to take another pill or not. I know how the pill functions by mainly stopping the egg meet the sperm. If this is true the morning after pill should still work right? as it delays the dropping of the egg for at least longer than 2 hours right? Thanks, Sincerely, Concerned individual
