Dear Phukunush

The emergency contraceptive ['morning after'] pill is very effective if taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It is important for you to visit a Family Planning Clinic [free of charge] to go on to a reliable contraceptive- as well as using the condom [unless you both in a long term committed relationship].

It is not possible to say if you are pregnant.
