Effectiveness of the pills ( ovral l) depends on what day of her menstrual cycle she has started them. If it is started beyond 5th day of her menstrual cycle , she can still conceive. I-pill is a better option than ovral l as an emergency contraception and should be taken within 12hours of unprotected sex. So wait for periods and in case it is delayed consult your doctor.
