Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Unwanted 72 prevents ovulation or if taken after ovulation prevents transport of sperm and egg. If you have taken the pill within 24 hours of unprotected sex, even if you have taken it prior to having sex, you are protected against the pregnancy. Please do not worry. You need not repeat the dose.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hi Dr XXXXXXX
Thanks for your reply..
I am very much afraid as i recieved the below reply :

- (the unwanted 72 pill can be taken within 72 hours of intercourse and it will give protection.so you are protected for the first act, as you took pill within 10 hours of the act.but this pill said to give complete protection for single act, and as there is delay of 16 hours from taking the pill to intercourse, you better take one more pill.in one cycle more than one pill can be taken.)

Please advise/suggest.

Hello.
Since the tablet inhibits ovulation and prevents transport of sperm, there is nothing to worry for the second act you had within 24 hours of taking the pill.
But if you are still worried then you may proceed with the second dose.
Wishing you an early trouble free recovery. Do accept the answer if there are no further queries.
Regards.
