Hello Anna,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us for help.

An emergency contraceptive is most effective, about 95%, if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual inteercourse. It works by preventing ovulation, which is when one of your ovaries releases an egg.

You took the pill within half an hour, so you should okay. Now, if ovulation passed, the pill could still prevent pregnancy by causing changes in your cervical mucus and lining of your uterus.

Anna, you will know if the pill worked if you have any vaginal bleeding within the next three weeks or by having your monthly period.
