Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. P2 should not be used as a contraceptive but rather an emergency backup. If you continue to have unprotected sex, you are at risk of pregnancy.

Since this already occurred, you will have to wait until you miss a period and take a pregnancy test. Have you considered birth control? Also, once you take p2, it is common to have irregular periods for about two months afterwards. You will have to monitor the situation closely. If you start your period, you should be safe from pregnancy. If you are still concerned about pregnancy, you can always get a pregnancy test for a piece of mind.

Good luck,
