Brief Answer:
pregnancy unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXX

I understand your concerns. You have done the right thing by giving your wife unwanted 72 after 67 hrs. However, you should have given the medicine earlier like within 24 hrs for better efficacy.

There is no need to worry since she has taken the medicine, though late.

There is nothing more that you can do to avoid a pregnancy in the case of unprotected sexual intercourse. You have done your best. Please relax, and wait for her periods to happen.

Hopefully, it should occur as normal.

Brief Answer:
no

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There is no need to give any more medicine as it will not help her now since 72 hours has lapsed. Also, one single tablet within 72 hrs will solve the problem. There is no need to repeat it.
