Hello and welcome to HCM
First of all I would suggest you to confirm pregnancy by a pregnancy test.
If you have already got one done then you need to visit your gynaecologist.
At this point of time, pills commonly known as 'morning after pill' do not work. They are effective only within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
An IUCD insetion is also effective but within five days of unprotected sex.
Now the only option left is the medical termination of pregnancy and it is safe within first few weeks of pregnancy (you are within two weeks, so good time to get it done).
However, before getting it done ensure that your hemoglogin is good enough (atleast 11gm%)as you may bleed during the procedure.

Thanks and take care

HI, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all, medical abortion can be done within 57 days from the day of last menstrual period.
NOw, there are many abortion kits available in market, which consist of Mifepristone and Misoprostol. First drug you have take orally and second per vaginally after 4-6 hrs.
These drugs are very efficient. But the problem is you have to be very cautious about the bleeding that will occur.If bleeding is very much, or longer than 7 days consult with gynaecologist for manual D&C.
