Brief Answer:
Take ipill as soon as possible

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear thanks for trusting health care magic.
There are high chances of getting pregnant in case you had unprotected sex.
Yes you should take ipill as soon as possible.
It usually works well if taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.
And in future avoid such episodes of unprotected intercourse and ipill intake and rather opt for protection in the form of condoms or use oral pills for safety.
All the best.
