Brief Answer:
I pill prevents the pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
If you have taken I pill within24 hours of unprotected intercourse, then the chances of pregnancy are extremely rare.
However, you should stop the elestron tablets for the rest of the cycle.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
