PEP after seven days

I took PEP seven days after having unprotected sex (condom burst) because it took my medical AID (bonitas) to authorize the medication and said I could still take it within 7 days (as oppose to the 72 hours period): Would it still be effective?

Hallo Scared and confused
The WHO suggests that one takes it within 72 hours - see http://whqlibdoc.who.int/publications/2007/9789241596374_eng.pdf
It may be effective but may be less effective than when taken within 72 hours
