Emergency contraceptive pills are available as over the counter pills in most countries and does not require a prescription. It's not recommended to substitute it with anything else. Please search at your nearest chemist and you will find one. The pill is best taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex. If you are in a regular relationship shift to low dose oral pills with next periods if you are healthy and have no contraindications .
