Dear Mr XXXX

As you had given emergency contraceptive pill within 72 hours of unprotected sex, it is very effective in preventing pregnancy. The periods will usually occur on expected dates. It will not occur 2 days after giving the pills.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care
