Thanks for the query.
Actually, partial breast feeding might cause absence of periods, but it does not guarantee that you would not ovulate .
Plus, taking cerazette 24 hours AFTER unprotected intercourse does NOT protect against pregnancy.
Cerazette has to be taken regularly daily, and then too for the first month, a backup method of family planning is always advised.
Instead, you could have tried taking the emergency contraceptive pill.
Anyways, for the time being, you can use a barrier method ( condom etc ) , and get yourself checked by a gynecologist after 3 weeks for any possible pregnancy.
Just one act of unprotected intercourse , that too while breastfeeding, puts you at low risk of pregnancy.
Once you have your check up, you can ask her to prescribe proper contraceptive pills for you, after assessing you.
Take care.
