Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Unwanted-72 is 95% effective if taken within 24 hrs.

You should not worry, as you have taken it on the same day. Thus chances of its failure are minimum.

Menstrual period starts on 14th day after ovulation. Some times ovulation is delayed and thus period is also delayed. Unwanted-72 can prevent/ delay ovulation if taken prior to ovulation.

You should wait for a week and if period does't start within a week, do pregnancy test at home.

As it does not prevent transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, always insist for condom. It should be used only in emergency condition.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,
