Unprotected Sex and Pregnancy

Patient

Q: My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex in two straight days. First day he pulled out but I think he ejaculated, then the second day, my ovulation day, he didn't pull out and fully ejaculated. I already took the pill 15 hours after the first one. Should I take another pill for the second one?

Symptoms:  None
Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Usually, emergency contraceptive pill can also give protection for 24hours after taking the pill.
So, if your second intercourse occurred within 24 hours of taking emergency pill, you may not need the second pill.

Take care.
