If you have had unprotected sexual intercourse with your girlfriend one week before her expected date of menstruation, there is a possibility of pregnancy.

Since you do not desire pregnancy at this time, I would advise her to take an emergency contraceptive pill such as the i-pill. However, this pill is effective in preventing pregnancy only if it is taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
