What are the possibilities of getting pregnant if I took my 1st Postinor 2 tablet 7-8 hours after sexual intercourse? I was supposed to take the second tablet 12 hours after but I fell asleep and woke up and took the second tablet more than 16 hours after the first tablet ; approximately 18 hours after intercourse. What are the chances of getting pregnant?

It should be taken as directed, but hopefully it shouldn't lessen the chances of helping prevent pregnancy, from what I've read.
It just depends if it had a good chance of preventing pregnancy to begin with. If you were ovulating, then the other emergency pill called Ella (Ulipristal Acetate) is the only pill proven can help prevent pregnancy. You can see that on their website. Also, it shows on the ec princeton website, on their page about emergency contraception, that women in a study who used Levonorgestrel during the day of ovulation, had as many pregnancies as those who did not use any emergency contraception.
Do you know if you were around ovulation?
