Katie, the sooner you take the morning after pill, the better. The 72 hours is the max the pill was thought to be effective, though that may be 120 hours in some cases, esp if you hadn't ovulated at the time of the accident. For rie: sperm can hang around for 5 days and still be good enough to fertilize the egg when ovulation occurs. The egg can be fertilized for no more than a day or two after ovulation. It does not take long for the sperm to get to the meeting place - hours not days. You can take a pregnancy test like First Response Early Result a few days before your missed period, but if it is negative you will probably have to take another to check. You are best off waiting until you are sure you have missed a normal period. Good luck!
