Ok, I had sex with my boyfriend on saturday and sunday without protection. I took the morning after pill, then set my alarm for 3am, when i had to take the other one. My alarm didnt go off, and i woke up at 9.45, and took the pill then...Will it still work? or have i gone to many hours over? please help, im worried.. [Frown]

You know, you took it when you took it.

Will it be AS effective as it might have been taken on time? Maybe not. But it also may still be fine, especially if you got that first dose within 120 hours of your risk.

But don't think there's no chance for it to work at all now: that's not so. Just might not be AS effective as it would have been otherwise.

It's a little late for this, but when I had taken the Plan B the woman at the Planned Parenthood told me that it's fine to take both of the pills at the same time and it seemed to work because it was about 3 years ago and I haven't had baby yet.
I suggest that anyone in the future should do that if you're like me and get absent minded at times with that sort of thing if you're busy. But only a suggestion.
