Thank you for posting a query.

I can understand your concern. I am giving your answers one by one.

1.     The date of your last menstrual period should be considered as 25th December, not the 17th December.

2.     As your last period was on 25th, then you have done sex before the ovulation. Usually ovulation occurs between 10 to 18 th days of one menstrual cycle.

So, there is very little chance of pregnancy. As you have taken the unwanted 72, the chance of getting pregnant is much lower.

3.     If you become pregnant, after all this, there is medicines like mifepristone which can cause medical termination of pregnancy. But, for this, you should consult with a gynecologist first to avoid any unwanted complications.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
