Brief Answer:
You can use emergency contraceptive pill

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing ..
I understand your concern..

You can use post coital pill containing levonorgestrel stat and repeat after 12 hrs.. Available in your market in the names of unwanted 72, i pill etc.. It reduces the chance of pregnancy by 69% if used within 72 hrs of unprotected intercourse..

It is better to take a contraceptive method like CuT or Oral contraceptive pills than repeated use of i pill..

Hope I have answered your query ..
Feel free to ask any doubts.. good day..
