Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

When you correctly take emergency contraception within 24 hours, it's up to 95% effective so your risk is only 5% or so.

You need to be using birth control every single time you have sex. We have a great article on all the different kinds of birth control out there than you can take a look at to help you choose:

I hope this has helped!

Best,
Susan
