Thank you for your question.
Though unusual still pregnancy may rarely be possible 3 days before the period. Therefore if you want to avoid pregnancy emergency contraception is recommended even in your case, and this is best taken within the 72-hour window. However its effectiveness does not expire after 72 hours and may still be effective for as long as five days (120 hours) after having sex.
