i have a question regarding the microgenon 30..
me and my gf had unsafe sex..
den 36 hour later she ate 4 pills at a time..
den 12 hours later she again took 4 pills at a time..
will this work?..
or she had to take 4 pills in 120 hour, i mean by giving breaks in between??..

its just 50 hour we had sex..
and in this 50 hours she already took 8 pills..

we are leaving in a country where the morning pills r baned, and after searching on the net i got the micrynon 30.

one more thing..
the pack has 1 onth course in it..
she already took the 8 pills, so can we throw da pills now??..

Some brands of the pill can also be used as emergency contraception, but I do not see Microgyn 30 on that list. Where did you get those pills? If you got them from a pharmacy or doctor with those specific instructions, to take them as EC, and your girlfriend took them according to those instructions, then it's a pretty good chance that the EC helped to lower your pregnancy risk.

However, if you did not take those pills at the recommendation of a doctor or pharmacy, then all bets are off. Since, again, I cannot find this brand of the pill on our list of brands that can act as EC, I can make absolutely no claims about the effectiveness of what your partner did.
