Dear FGG,

If it has been 72 hours or less since you engaged in unprotected intercourse, you have the option of going to a clinic or Planned Parenthood for something called Emergency Contraception. This will prevent you from becoming pregnant.

If this is not an option for you, wait 3-4 weeks after your missed period and take a pregnancy test.

In the future, we suggest that you learn about how to protect yourself from unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. You are the only person looking out for you when it comes to sex - and we hope that you do from now on.
