Apologies for the delay in responding.

I do not have enough information to respond to your query, but I'm guessing that you are wondering whether a sexual partner can still fall pregnant if she has taken emergency contraception. This all depends on when she took it after the unprotected sex...it can be used up to 72 hours after the sex and still prevent pregnancy. It is, however, not guaranteed.
