I am not sure why you had intercourse during your fertile time if you did not wish to fall pregnant. The emergency pill at this time would be about 90% effective in preventing pregnancy. The emergency pill often disrupts your cycle, so you may well not ovulate in April or ovulate at a different time from expected. Life is not a computer, it cannot be planned exactly to the month.
