You took Next Choice, an emergency contraceptive, incorrectly.
According to the product website:
* Take the first tablet as soon as possible but not later than 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex, sexual attack, or a known or suspected contraceptive failure
* Take the second tablet 12 hours after you took the first one
In most instances, your next menstrual period will come at or within 1 week of its expected time. If it is delayed beyond 1 week, you could be pregnant. You should take a pregnancy test and follow up with your healthcare professional.
