It may effect your ovulation in April. Did you have a period after taking the treatment?

There is a gynae forum but i can answer your question.If you only took the emergency pill 5 days after unprotected sex and you're sure that you were ovulating then you have a good chance of falling pregnant.The emergency pill (ovral) works up to 72 hours later(3 days) so 5 days is a bit late unless you didn't ovulate on the 4th or at all.I can't say for sure if you are pregnant.You'll have to test yourself but since you are planning on a baby then having it a month earlier shouldn't be much of a problem.Good Luck.
