There are some people who believe that once the emergency pill is taken, it is possible to have more unprotected sex for a while. It is necessary to keep in mind that the effect of the emergency pill lasts between eleven and fifteen hours. Once eighteen hours have passed, the pill has already been removed from the body and will not protect against an unwanted pregnancy. Therefore, it is advisable to use another barrier contraceptive method if the emergency pill has been taken before.
