It is possible that you could become pregnant when you have unprotected sex. However, if you did get pregnant, you would not start to feel symptoms the same day you had sex. Usually it takes 2 or more weeks after you become pregnant to feel symptoms.
Do you know about Emergency Contraception?
Emergency Contraception, sometimes called the ‘morning after pill’, is best taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, but it can be taken up to five days later.
In BC, you can get this from your doctor, a walk-in clinic, youth clinics and Options for Sexual Health clinics. ECP is usually free in youth clinics if you are under age 24. You can also get emergency contraception without a prescription in many pharmacies in BC.
Also, most youth clinics have free condoms and testing for sexually transmitted infections. Check out our clinic finder if you need help finding a clinic.
