How long can I wait before taking the pill?
Take it as early as possible. Most pills work only if taken within 72 hours of the intercourse. As research has progressed, pills which work up to 120 hours of intercourse have also come to the market. The success rate is higher if you take it within 12 hours of the intercourse.
My periods have been delayed even after taking the pill. Am I pregnant?
You cannot be sure. Delayed arrival of periods or sometimes early arrivals are normal side effects of taking the pill. You should wait for another couple of days, if your periods still do not start, it would be better that you take a pregnancy test. This might happen because the morning after pill has failed because taking it late or because its working was effected by certain medications that you were already taking.
How often can I take the pill?
It should be taken only once during a menstrual cycle. If it is taken more than once, it would not work. In such cases you should use normal methods of contraception or abstain from sex altogether. It should be made clear that morning after pill is an emergency contraceptive method and is not for normal use.
