Brief Answer:
You are less likely to be pregnant

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your query.

As you have taken post coital pills within 72 hours, you are less likely to be pregnant. They piils are highly effective when taken within 72 hours. But I would suggest you to consider other method of contraception of you don't want get pregnant. I would not recommend you to use post coital pills regularly.

There may be delay in periods, may be by 3 to 4 days. I would suggest you to take a urine pregnancy test if your period is delayed by a week.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
