Unprotected Sex and Pregnancy

Patient : Hello doctor, I took postinor 2 a week after i had unprotected sex with my partner, am scared what is the risk percentage of getting pregnant?
Symptoms:  Experiencing Waist pain
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. Emergency pills of contraception have to be taken within 120 hours of the intercourse, ideally 72 hours, earlier the better. Taking it after so long will not have any effect of contraception and you will have all the possible chances of a pregnancy. See a Gynecologist for further options. Hope this helped. Regards
