Took postinor after unprotected sex. Is this an effective medication? Will I be pregnant?

My husband and I had sex on cycle day 14 and the condom broke. All signs pointed to ovulation happening within 24 hours of that. I took Postinor 1, 12 hours after having sex. I've read that postinor 1 is least effective when taken in that short window of sex and ovulation. I am experiencing tender breasts, heavy feeling in uterus, nausea etc - could this be the pill or is my research correct that the probability of me being pregnant is high?

Thanks for your query.This is a 2-pill dose contains 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel. Don't worry it is effective if taken within 120 hrs. But it is highly effective if taken within 48 hrs. So need not worry, if you miss your periods then please consult your gynaec.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
