Our expert says:
You need to take Emergency contraceptives within 72 hours or have an IUD inserted before 5 days. That is why it is called emergency contracpetives. However, by the time you do a pregnancy test, about 15 days later, it will be to late to take precautionary measures.
If you leave it to late you might be looking at options of pregnancy, abortion or adoption which is far more serious choices than one day of nausea after EC.
