Had unprotected sex. Does taking pill prevent the chances of getting pregnant?

Hello, im Arnold I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend yesterday afternoon. I didnt released inside her and i am certain of it but we are worried that pre and post cum might have occured during our intercourse. She already took 4 tablets this morning at exact 10am and she will have 4 again tonight as her 2nd intake. Will it be effective? Will it prevent the chance of her getting pregnant based on the details that I cited?

thanks for your query.
Emergency contraception is effective in 95 % of cases, if taken within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse.
So, technically, chances of pregancy are there, although low.
So,please use a reliable method of protection in the future, and wait for her period, as you have already done the best you could to avoid a pregnancy.
take care.
