Brief Answer:
deviry is not an emergency contraceptive pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
Deviry is not an emergency contraceptive pill so it will not prevent pregnancy instead you may opt for an IPILL within 72 hrs of last intercourse which has a success rate of 99% in preventing pregnancy. So go for an emergency contraceptive pill and not a low dose oc pill like Deviry.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
If you have already taken 8 tabs of deviry which was not to be taken. You should have taken plain progesterone only pills like meprate 10mg twice a day for 5 days and then the menses would have come in next 5-7 days post the last dose.
You may get a serum beta hcg test to rule out pregnancy if you wish to be sure . If the hcg levels are less than 3mIU then you are not pregnant.
