Need help on contraceptio

Hello doctors, My previous period was on 25th oct and I had intercourse on 5th nov with no contraception. I am worried if this can lead to pregnancy. Can I take any pill now to avoid pregnancy? Thank you.

Hello....... Post coital progesterone pills should be taken within 72 hours, no use taking after 72 hours.. Don't take any pills without doctors advice.. it only prevent implantation of ovulation . it may alter period a week here and there.have a 5%-20% failure rate. .If you miss regular menses do urine pregnancy test ,if it comes positive consult gynecologist
