I had unprotected sex on the 18th of august and my period was due on the 19th of august now I'm 2 days late. Is it too late for me to take the morning after pill?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

There is still time to take emergency contraception although it's effectiveness will be less - about 70%. But that's better than nothing.

It's very unlikely that you're pregnant since you had sex a day before your period was due. This is the safest part of your cycle.
