morning after pills
Hi Doc!

I have a small problem. I had sex yesterday and I have a feelling that something happened to the condom so I am scared that I might become pregnant. I have not taken the morning after pill yet. What would happen if I took it like approximately 20 hours later?

You have 72 hours to take it, but rather get going and do it, before it is to late. It is actually called emergency contracpetives, else we should call it trhe morning after the morning after the next morning pill - 3 days later.
