HI, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all dont panic . As you have taken the drug within 72 hrs it is literally impossible to get pregnant.
In studies it has showed effectiveness of approximately 99% so, there are few cases of contraceptive failure.
So, guarantee cant be given. Just wait and if you miss your next period do a pregnancy test on or after the day of missed period.
