    I had unprotected sex, took emergency contraceptives, but the sex was one day before my fertile window. Will the pill still work?

    I had unprotected sex on the 12 of April. I took emergency contraceptives within one hour of having sex (the morning after pill- 1 pill).

    I messed up again. I had unprotected sex on the 15 of April. I took emergency contraceptives within 11 hours of the sex (morning after pill, different brand, this one had 2 pills to take. Took the 2nd pill 12 hours after the first).

    Yes, I took the pill 2 times in one week. I know you shouldn’t do that, but I didn’t have much choice given what happened. I don’t take any other form of birth control besides condoms.

    Yes, he for sure came inside during these times.

    I had been using My Fitbit to track my periods for nearly one year. According to Fitbit, my fertile window should have opened one the 16th (one day after the last time I had unprotected sex). My ovulation day should have been the 21.

    I know a fertility app isn’t perfect. But it’s always been within 1-2 days of predicting my next period, so it’s always been somewhat correct in its timing.

    Am i greater risk of becoming pregnant? Will the pill still work?
