Brief Answer:
Wait for the periods.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
After 9 days of having sex, there is no way to prevent the pregnancy. Taking medicine to prepone the period is a hormonal tablet and will further support the pregnancy. Right now waiting for the period is the only way.
In case the periods are delayed then test your urine for pregnancy.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Abortion pills will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.

If your pregnancy test comes positive after the due date of periods then medicines are available to terminate the pregnancy.

Medicines are the only way to terminate the pregnancy. Usually Mifepristone and misoprostal are used for this. It is best to take these under supervision of your gynecologist to avoid any complications.

Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Details below.

Detailed Answer:
I can explain the general protocol to you, but again, taking them without consulting a doctor is not just illegal, but potentially life threatening.
Generally, 1 tablet of Mifepristone is taken orally.
24 hours later, 2 tablets of 200 mcg Cytotec are taken orally or vaginally followed by 2 more such tablets another 24 hours later.
After this procedure, bleeding and cramping might start within 24 - 48 hours, and continue for upto 2 - 3 weeks.
It is also vital to have a follow up ultrasound scan to check that the abortion pills worked and the uterus is empty, after 15 days of taking the tablets.
Failing to take these precautions , there are risks such as - infection, uncontrolled bleeding, retained products, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy etc.
And if these steps are followed, the pills work in more than 95 % of cases.
All the best
