Thanks for writing to us

Yes it is better to take the pill again within 72 hrs

Chances of pregnancy increase in the mid cycle

There is no harm in taking the second pill if you want total protection

Side effects of extra dosage can be nausea for which you can take anti emetic

Best wishes
Take care
