Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

While emergency contraceptives are highly effective in preventing pregnancy, they do not prevent all pregnancies or claim to.

The general consensus is that they will prevent up to 95% but there are also claims of 70 or 80%.

I would advise you to retest just to confirm you are pregnant, even though most tests are correct and you are taking it at a time when it would be accurate. Retest and then go from there.
