Thanks for your query.
The I pill is more than 95 % effective if taken within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse.
So you should be safely protected as long as you did not take the pills AFTER ovulation had occurred, because then, they are not effective.
You should wait for your next period.
Mala D can be started on the 1st or 2nd day of the periods.
Take care
