Thanks for the query
If you have had an episode of unprotected intercourse
, even during your ' safe ' period, theoretically, there are always chances of pregnancy
Moreover, even the pre ejaculatory fluid sometimes contains active sperms , hence you should always use a permanent, reliable method of contraception
As for now, taking the emergency contraceptive pill
within 48 hours will protect against pregnancy, however , it is not 100 % effective, and it is more effective if taken within 24 hours.
So, for the time being, use a contraceptive, and wait for your period.
If delayed by a week, go for pregnancy testing and appropriate medical advice
