Hello,

There is no need to take Unwanted 72 on two consecutive days. If you have taken it once you can have unsafe sex for the next 2-3 days. Taking these too frequently can cause a hormonal disturbance.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rakhi Tayal, OBGYN
