Since the last time i wrote i went to the clinic and got the emergency contraceptive, Plan B, i took the first pill in the afternoon, so the next one was to be really late, i didnt take the second pill 12 hrs later, i took it like 15 hrs later, will that make a difference on the pill's effect??

3 hours difference is probably not enough time to cause a problem. However, if you really want to be sure, call the clinic where you got the pill and ask. They will be able to give you information based on the specific pill you took.

Links to some excellent information on emergency contraception (EC) can be found on the Planned Parenthood emergency contraception web page. (Click on the page name to go there.)
