Thanks for the query.
Althea are oral contraceptive pills and it should be started from 1st day of menstrual period to have its contraceptive effect during fertility period therefore you have a chance of getting pregnant.
I would suggest you to take morning after pill as soon as possible that is within 72 hours to prevent pregnancy even if you have already taken althea pill.
Take care
