Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  The sooner you take it, the better your chances for success.  The first one should be taken within
72 hours (3 days) of having unprotected sex.  The second one should be taken 12 hours after the first tablet is taken.  Is not effective if you're already pregnant, and it will not terminate an existing pregnancy.
