Now its 6.10 pm. on 03/12/2012. 72 hours is going to be over within few hours. What should I do now? Should I take the pill to avoid pregnancy or its no of use? Please help immediately.

Thanks for the query.

As you had the menstrual bleed the next morning [within 12 hours], the chances of you becoming pregnant are very less to zero. So there is no need to take I-pill.

I hope I have been helpful. Let me know if you have other concerns.

With best wishes
