Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us for help.

An emergency contraceptive prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. This affect lasts for one menstrual cycle, so do not take another dose.

It should be taken after unprotected sex, not before. But, it should still work for you as long as you had not yet ovulated.
