Me and my boyfriend had sex three days ago. We didn’t start off with a condom. He barely even went in the first 2-3 times then he put a condom on. Should I take the morning after pill or is it too late?
There are several things that need to be addressed here. First, even though he ‘barely went in the first 2-3 times’ pre-ejaculation fluid (pre-cum) can still be present and if it enters the vagina, not only can you get pregnant, but you can also get a sexually transmitted infection. This is why condoms should always be used before the man’s penis touches the woman’s vagina.
Second, you should consider long term birth control. There are several types: pills, patches, rings, shots, IUD, and an implant. Your health care provider will be able to give you all of the information on each method and find the one that best suits you.
Lastly, emergency contraception (the morning after pill) has to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. While this may delay ovulation so that you will not become pregnant, it is NOT a method of birth control.
If you are going to have sex, then you need to be responsible for your health and safety. Find a health care provider that will listen to your questions and will educate you on birth control and on how to prevent a sexually transmitted infection.
