Hello there,

Which pill do you mean?

There are emergency contraceptive pills that one can take within 72 hours (3 days) from the time of unprotected sex. The effective rate of this pill decreases with time therefore is highly recommended that the pills are taken at earliest opportunity possible. It is important to note that this is an emergency pill and should not be used as a regular family planning method. Check out this article for more information on emergency contraception pills:- https://lovematters.co.ke/birth-control/types-of-birth-control/emergency....

The other type of pills are the normal family planning pills; these pills are taken every day by a woman. This article has more information- https://lovematters.co.ke/birth-control/types-of-birth-control/the-pill.

Both pills are not used when someone is pregnant or suspecting to be pregnant. Therefore it is important that you take a pregnancy test between the 14-21 days after the time you had unprotected sex. If you are not pregnant, you can decide on a more regular family planning method. If you are, then take care of the pregnancy.
