I'm 16 and I had unprotected sex

Hi I'm a 16 year old girl and I had unprotected sex just a day ago so I'm not sure if I'm pregnant but if I am I really don't know what to do I've never had a child before I'm scared.

Editor's Comment

I would suggest you use one of the pregnancy services to get some support and information. If it is more than 5 days ago then you will be too late for emergency contraception. You should have a pregnancy test done or buy a home test if your period is late.
