I had sex with my boyfriend and the condom broke

Patient

Q: I had sex with my boyfriend and the condom broke. i rushed and bought the Pregnon pill and took the 1st pill the same day but i forgot and took the 2nd pill 30 minutes after the recommended 12 hours. Was it late and could i get pregnant?

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
As you took the first pill within 24 hours of intercourse, delay of 30 minutes in taking the second pill may not alter the efficacy of the pills in preventing pregnancy.
You can expect as usual around 90% success rate of pills.

Take care.
