Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. Since you have taken medicines for plan B the pregnancy of chances are almost nil.

2. Take the medicines as prescribed and complete the course.

3. Dont worry about pregnancy.

4. Next time be oral contraceptive or other form of long term medication.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There are 2 tablets in pack .

each tablet to be taken 24 hours but within 72 hours.

Periods might get irregular for next cycle only due to pills.Chances of pregnancy are very low. almost nil.

There may be abdominal pain and vomiting as side effect. Dont worry. Not major.
