Brief Answer:
Morning after pill very effective

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You had unprotected intercourse and to prevent pregnancy you tool postinor 2. This is nearly 98% protective for preventing pregnancy if taken within 1 day after unprotected intercourse. So I think since you used the medication so soon you have prevented any chance for pregnancy.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions

Answered by Dr. Ronald Schubert 1 minute later
Brief Answer:
1-2 days after missed cycle

Detailed Answer:
Today's urine pregnancy tests are very sensitive and can detect pregnancy the first week of a missed cycle. So I would recommend 1-2 days after your usual start date
