My best friend had sex with her partner yesterday for the first time. They did not use condom at the first try but later they did use it.
He did not cum inside her vagina but the pre-ejacuates were there. She was scared of getting pregnant so she took a contraceptive pill today morning.
Today evening they again had intercourse and did not use condom or any other kind of protection when they were trying it again. They used a condom some time later. He again did not ejacuate in her vagina during the intercourse. Again she is scared.

Should she take another contraceptive pill tomorrow?
She has never used birth control pills.

Just to be clear: did she take one pill, or did she take a dosage of the pill that qualifies as emergency contraception?

I-pill is an emergency contraceptive pill. The dosage is one pill, so there is nothing to be gained by your friend taking another dose.

At this point, she can wait until 14 or more days after the unprotected sex and then test for pregnancy.

If she has asked for your help with this, you can also share this article with her so she and her boyfriend can practice safer sex in the future.
