Hi.... Morning after pills are available commercially under various names... They essentially contain the same drug... All these drugs are effective in previnting the pregnancy only when you take them well under 72 hours following unprotected sexual intercourse.. So if it has passed 72 hours, then none of these drugs would be effective..
