If emergency contraception it taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercouse, it is 85 percent effective at preventing pregnancy. There is nothing that is 100 percent effective, including contraceptive measures except for total hysterectomy.

and can the two ovaries ovulate at the same time?

Expert:  Dr Patty replied 8 years ago.
It's possible for one ovary to release multiple eggs at once, but I have never heard of both ovulating an egg or more a piece at the same time, no.
