Will the effectiveness of Next Choice Pill decrease if it taken 6 hours late ?

hello, I had unprotected sex and I took the first Next Choice pill within the same day. The directions say to take the second pill 12 hours after the first dose, but I fell asleep early and ended up taking it 18 hours late. Will the effectiveness of the pills decrease if the second one isn t taken exactly 12 hours later?
