Hello, emergency birth control pills have only one time effect. Should be taken with in 72hours to avoid pregnancy, so the pill you have taken previously will not have effect on this,, so you need to take it again. And it should be with in 72hrs of you recent sexual intercourse. But next time stick to good quality condoms.
