Brief Answer:
NO NEED TO REPEAT DOSAGE

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
There is no need to take another pill.
Unwanted 72 has the effect when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
So there is no need to repeat the dosage within 72 hours.
Also, indiscriminate use of Unwanted 72 will make its efficacy less, and also lead to side effects of irregular menstrual cycle.
It is best to use regular contraception.
All the best
