Thanks for the question.
Oral contraceptive pills will not act as effective as Post coital pills even in higher dose, hence you will not be sure of its definite efficacy. Cost of pregnancy will, anyway, be more than cost of Post coital pill. Please rush and take the post coital pill , if 72 hours have not lapsed. Plan B 0,75 mg-is most effective if the first dose is taken within 72 hours, followed by second dose 12 hours later. A single dose of 1.5 mg is eqally effectve.
Best luck.
