Hi!
If you were my patient, I would have to advise you that emergency contraception does no harm to an established pregnancy--that is one of the reasons why it is considered so safe for use. In other words, it can't be used to terminate a pregnancy simply because it won't work.
I hope you can find a solution to your dilemna!
