Can ipill be used two weeks after an abortion as an emergency contraceptive for unprotected sex ?

Hi, I need help. I m 24 years old and in a longterm relationship. had an abortion last month and the bleeding stopped after about ten days on the 1st of march. I had a scan done on the 12th and it said no sign of a pregnancy . I ended up having sex after that around the 16th without protection for some time but then we used a condom. After going through all I did I ended up making a stupid mistake once more and am now terrified that ill get pregnant again. Please tell me my options. Also if I take an ipill now will it work? And is it ok to take it so soon after the abortion? I had not even gotten over what happened emotionally and once again I m terrified. I don t think I can go through it once more nor can I let anyone find out. The worst part is my boyfriend has not been a support like I expected from him. Funny thing is he still insists on not using a condom and doesn t seem to show any concern for my health or how this can effect me. Please help me. I m hurt, terrified, lonely and lost and don t know where to go or who to talk to.

The ipill helps only if it is taken within 72 hours of the intercourse. Taking it so soon after abortion can cause an irregular spotting and bleeding. Be careful not to use hormonal tablets so frequently.Try a permanent method of contraception.
