Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

P2 is 95% effective when taken within 24 hours of having intercourse. If you wish to take it at the end of the week after having intercourse 3 times, you are not guaranteed protection for the times you had intercourse more than 24 hours before. 

But with that being said, P2 is NOT meant to be a consistent method of birth control.  It is for emergencies ONLY.

If you plan to continue having intercourse, and do not wish to become pregnant, you need to relay on a different form of birth control such as condoms or monthly oral pills not P2.
