Emergency Contraception
Hi,
i took emergency contraception yesterday. i took the first pill at 8.00pm lat night. i was supposed to take the second one at 8 this morning (12 hours later) but i forgot. i only took it at about 9.15 this morning. can anyone tell me if this can seriouslly affect the effectiveness of the pills? do i need to go and get another set of emergency contraceptives?

Thanks

An hour's difference should be okay.
