Thanks for your query.
This action definitely does not guarantee that you would not get pregnant.
Emergency contraception can be taken upto 72 hours, but to be most effective, it has to be taken within 24 hours.
You were late in taking it.
Also, intercourse on the day of ovulation results in highest chances of pregnancy.
Take a pregnancy test if you miss your period.
All the best.

Thanks for writing to us.
The chances of pregnancy have always been there with unprotected sex.
In your case chances of pregnancy are there because you had unprotected sex on ovulation day and you had emergency pills on the 4th day (it should be taken within 72hrs.).
You should consult a gynaecologist if you missed your period for urine, blood test and ultrasonography to rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
Good luck.
