I took Plan B ( emergency contraceptive ) one day after sex

Patient: I took Plan B ( emergency contraceptive ) one day after having unprotected sex, I then had unprotected sex again 5 hours after taking the medication. Was I still protected against pregnancy? Or should I buy another dose?

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.There is no need of taking another dose of plan-b. You would stand protected for next 72 hrs. All you need to do is to wait for the withdrawal bleed to initiate within 7-10 days hence which shall rule out pregnancy for sure.Hope this helps you.Regards
