Hello I have a problem with a morning after pill
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I took one and after a week I had my period, unfortunately I had to take another one on my last day of period
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm worried that the first pill that I took posticipated my ovulation during my period and the second pill didn't work

Why did you have to take another one on the last day of your menses?

If you were menstruating there is no way to become pregnant.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I know that sperm can last for three days, and plus the pill I took posticipated my ovulation, so I thought I could have it during my period

Given what you posted it is very, very unlikely that you are pregnant.

You can never get pregnant during your menses and you don't ovulate for about 2 weeks after the end of your menses.

So. What is the take home message?

No harm was done by taking the second pill. You did not need it, but it didn't hurt anything.

You have an almost zero risk of being pregnant at this time from what you have posted.

Does this make sense to you?
