you are taking progesterone for the irregular periods, and you had unprotected sexual intercourse..
the progesterone also acts as a contraceptive, by making the cervical discharge thick, so that the sperm cannot penetrate and travel inside..
so there is no need of emergency contraceptive as of now..
all the best..

Hi thanks for using HCM.

Need to take another pill. Duphaston is Dydrogesterone and will not help to prevent pregnancy. It is indicated for progesterone deficiency like menstrual disorders, infertility due to luteal insufficiency and abortion.

Wish you good health.
