Brief Answer:
No need of any tablet.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Thanks for posting the query.
Don't be too much tensed of conceiving. As you have finished the cycles yesterday only the risk is very low. If you have regular cycles the chances of conception is from day 8 to day 20. Don't take any emergency pill, just be relaxed.

Take care.

Brief Answer: XXXXXXX is not an emergency contraceptive.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up.
XXXXXXX is not an emergency contraceptive. It is a full cycle 21 tablets to be taken every day from the day 5 of your cycle. there is no evidence of it in emergency cases. And having so many tablets may have side effects like stroke and blood clotting.

Brief Answer:
vitamin c.

Detailed Answer:
There is no other alternative medicine for emergency contraceptive. There are some research telling Vitamin C intra vaginal for 3 days kills the sperm. But i am totally unaware of it, and have never used in my practice.
I suggest you to not take any thing as you are 100% risk free.

Take care.
