If you are already taking regular oral contraceptive pill since start of your period then you should not worry about pregnancy and keep taking these tablets as per your schedule. But if you r not on regular oral contraceptive and you have no access to any emergency contraceptive pill then you can take 2 tabs of high dose of regular oral contraceptive (EE 50mcg+NG 500mcg) within 72 hrs and repeat it again after 12 hrs and hope for the best. I pill is available in almost all pharmacies. Take care.
