Hi,
Thanks for the query.

As she took the emergency pill within 72 hours, it can possibly prevent the pregnancy according to manufacturers.
At present nothing can be done.
So better to wait till her expected date of periods.
If she gets the period on time, it is good.
If the period get delayed by one week, better to go for home urine pregnancy test once.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
If the test comes positive, then she has to consult gynecologist and undergo ultrasound to confirm intrauterine pregnancy.
Then with the doctor's advice she can go for medical termination of pregnancy.
But don't worry the possibility of pregnancy is less.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
