Used morning after pill after unprotected sex. On birth control. Chances of pregnancy?

birth control
my girlfriend is on birth control pills. within the first 2 week period of starting the regiment, we had unprotected sex, but she took a morning after pill. I believe that she's been using both forms of birth control as prescribed by a medical practitioner.
is it possible for her to become pregnant? does taking the morning after pill increase the risk of pregnancy?
I would appreciate your professional opinion.

Thanks for query.
As you say she is already on contraception why she is taking EC?
Chances of pregnancy in your case are nill,but if period overdue go for pregnancy test,and consult a gynaecologist.
EC not increase the risk of pregnancy.
So don't worry.
Take care.
