Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

The POSTINOR pill is emergency contraceptive to use for exactly the situation you described. If you took it within 72 hours of having unprotected sex, which you did, then it should be effective in preventing you from becoming pregnant.

I hope this helps.
Be well,
