Hi Nessa121, There is always

Hi Nessa121,

There is always a chance but in this case I would say it is very slim as you had just taken the emergency pill. There is no limit on the amount of times you can take an emergency contraceptive pill. However, being that close together I would call your doctor and ask him/her if it is okay to take another one if that is what you decide to do. You can also call a clinic such as Planned Parenthood if you do not have a doctor or even your local pharmacy can advice you on this situation.

Best of Luck,

thank you
