Brief Answer: Yes but not Ideal!!! Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for trusting us with your health queries. Drugs are best taken in the conserved form. altering the for before consuming can lead to loss of the active ingredient before reaching the digestive system where it is absorbed into blood. This may affect how well this drug may work towards protecting against unwanted pregnancy. Though I will highly discourage you from doing this, it is better than nothing if this is the only way you can afford to take the drug. Please, emergency contraception is not as good as a regular contraceptive method for several reasons. I will suggest that you consider adopting and using a regular contraceptive method. Please, remember that contraceptive methods other than condoms do not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Please, always consider using condoms during intercourse to prevent STDs. I hope this addresses your query fully. Thanks for using our services and do feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. I wish you the best of health. Dr. Ditah, MD.
