Thank you for your question.
Ipill is 95% effective if taken within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse. It also depends on whether this was the only episode of unprotected sex and which part of your cycle you took it. It is less effective if you have already ovulated.
The only way to be 100% sure you are not pregnant is to wait for your period and do a pregnancy test if it is delayed. For every episode of unprotected intercourse you have a 30-40% risk of pregnancy. You are better off using two contraceptive methods together to be extra sure next time. E.g the oral contraceptive pill as well as condoms.
Best wishes
