Levonelle is best taken within 12 hours and not later than 72 hours of an unprotected coitus. The drug is preferably followed by other barrier methods of contraception and is usually not repeated frequently as it can disrupt the menstrual cycle. Pregnancy that occurs after taking the pill can be ectopic and hence caution has to be exercised it this respect. There is no obvious contraindication for a medical abortion after the pill. I advice you to immediately contact your doctor for further management. Take care.
