15 and worried I could be pregnant.

I AM A 15 YEAR OLD GIRL. I HAD UNPROTECTED SEXUAL INTERCOURSE 6 DAYS AGO. ARE THERE ANY DRUGS THAT I CAN TAKE TO PREVENT ME FALLING PREGNANT? MY FATHER WOULD KILL ME IF I CAME WITH A BABY.

Editor's Comment

If you had unprotected sex more than 5 days ago then you cannot use emergency contraception. Up to 5 day an IUD can be fitted to prevent pregnancy, and there is also hormonal contraception. You will need to wait and see if your period is late, or do a pregnancy test 3 weeks after you had unprotected sex. If you want some help or support it is available for support around unprotected sex. or call the helpline 0300 4000 999.
