Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

In emergency contraception Levonorgesterol is to be taken in high dose within 72 hours of unprotected sex.It is not advisable to have this drug for emergency contraception.Try to find a drug which has Levonorgesterol and take.

I advise you to verify whether you need emergency contraception or not.If you are in your safe period , the chances of pregnancy would be very low and you dont need Emergency contraception.

Take care.
