Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Since you have had unprotected sex and you have noticed semen around your vagina, it is always safer to take the morning after pill. Please do so without delay. These pills contain levonorgestrel and have to be taken upto 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.
They often cause certain side effects like nausea, headache, tenderness in the breasts and unexpected vaginal bleeding. However, I would like to emphasize that these drugs should not be used as a routine method of contraception and other more effective and safer methods like condoms and oral contraceptive pills should be preferred.

I hope I have answered your query.
I wish you good health.

Regards
