Sex 14hours after Escapelle, pregnancy risk


I have been on the pill for about a week, period stopped on thursday last week... not long enough to be protected. So after a whoopsie on friday night I bought Escapelle. I took it at about 2am on Saturday morning. My boyfriend and I then had a bit of a spontaneous moment 14 hours later where nothing was available and we were in the middle of nowhere. Thought I' d be fine. Now worrying.

Should I take another escapelle, or shall the first one and the normal pill be enough?

As long as you have maintained your Pill intake you would be almost protected as you have now being taking it for 12 days. Escapelle is indicated for post coital contraception but not on repetative dosing as the hormone concentrations are different to the Pill. you may have spotting or breakthrough bleeding due to the incre4ased hormone intake .
Please do a pregnancy test aruond the 26/1/10

Hi I had sex early Sunday morning, I took escapelle on Monday, but had sex again last night (Tuesday). I'm not on the pill. Will escapelle work for both occasions or should I take another one?

Did you get an answer? What did you end doing? .. I'm in the exact same situation right now. Took escapelle 2 weeks ago, and I had an accident again today, & I don't know if I should take another one now

Hi I wanted to know how many times can you take an escapella pill in your life. And what will happen to you if you take it more than those times. I am worried cause I took it 4 times now.
