Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community!

If you took the 1st pill within 72 hours after having sexual intercourse, which based on the events you described, you did.  And you took the 2nd pill within 12 after taking the 1st pill, you followed the manufacturer's instructions so you should be fine.  It is very unlikely that the additional 30 minutes would have a negative impact.

I hope this helps!

Be well,
