Brief Answer: No NEED Detailed Answer: Hello, If she has taken a single dose of unwanted 72 its enough. She need not take any more pills. She will get bleeding in a week or two. There should not be chance of pregnancy. Also remember that taking multiple doses of pills in the same month is contraindicated. That will have side effects. Use condoms for the rest of the month.

Brief Answer: Hormonal surge Detailed Answer: Unwanted 72 is a hormone drug. It should be only used in emergency. Its a high dose hormone which causes certain hormonal surge in the body preventing conception. Its ideally to be taken during ovulation period.In your case, your wife is on day 20 of her cycle. Normally ovulation occurs between day 12-16. Its unlikely she was ovulating on dec 25th. If the pill works, then she should get her usual period. But nothing is 100%fool proof. There is a minimal chance of failure.

Brief Answer: no problem Detailed Answer: There is no problem in taking the pill with food. Since you ejaculated outside, chances of pregnancy are low. Do a pregnancy test only if she is delayed by more than 2 weeks.
