I took the morning after pill(2)yesterday immediately after intercourse. My question is how safe is it & do I have to take another two just to be safer?
Thank you.

It is 90-99% safe depending where in the cycle you take it. I don't know which type of pill you used, but generally you have to take two and then two 12 hours later.
