Hi Anon,

Thank you for choosing the EmpowHER community and for posting your questions! Levonogestrel pills are up to 89 percent effective when taken within 72 hours (three days) after unprotected sex and when taken exactly as prescribed.

The best way to know if the medication worked correctly is to take a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test can be taken 10-14 days after unprotected sex and when taken correctly, will certainly be accurate by the time your period is due. 

Here is more information from the EmpowHER community:


As for your question about HIV, were you both virgins or had you recently been tested for HIV? I am just trying to get a better understanding of how it is that you are sure you are not a carrier.

HIV is spread via sexual activity, blood transfusions or any situation in which one person’s blood enters the body and bloodstream of another person. A person can also be born with HIV if one or both of the parents had HIV.

Even though AIDS is not airborn, people are fooled into believing they do not or cannot have it if they are symptom-free and therefore can be carriers of this disease, spreading it from partner to partner without once getting tested.

Anon, anytime you have unprotected sex you are taking a risk of getting pregnant and catching an STD. You are aware of your own circumstances and know your sexual history, but what about your partner? Has he or she been exposed to STDs?

I don't want to unnecessarily worry you, but you need to know that there is always a risk when having sex. Even married couples have contracted STDs from the spouse because of an affair etc.

You should always use a condom and get tested for STDs if you are sexually active.

Did this advice help?
