Dear Sara,

Did you take another morning after pill after having unprotected sex on May 4th? Are you on any form of regular birth control medication?

Since you are age 30, you typically won’t be as fertile as an 18 year old in your same position. However, based on the effect of the first morning after pill on your system (i.e. if & when you would next ovulate), there is an increased probability that having unprotected sex on May 4 (assuming you are not on any form of birth control) could lead to pregnancy. I would recommend that you wait a week and then take a urine home pregnancy test the first thing on the morning of the 22nd. If it reads negative, then you are probably fine, but you could follow it up with another pregnancy test on the morning of the 29th.

    I really need your advice, your answers are really good. I am 14 nearly 15 and I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, we had been together for three years and I felt I was ready. I have always been the most mature person out of my friends and I have a really supportive group of friends. I never wished to rush into anything but I trusted this boy and I love him. The first time we had sex was about six months ago, it wasn’t planned and we just went with the flow one day. Since then we had been having sex quite often and we used protection everytime, just over a month ago we broke up. But about 2 weeks after we got back together, we were alone that day and the only kind of protection we had was the pill Wich I found in my bag, I took one that day, but completely forgot to take anymore the days after, as I was so busy with one of my English essays. I can’t remember when my last period was as I have been so busy, but I am constantly hungry, my breasts are getting bigger and my nipples are swore. I have been sick quite alot in the mornings and nights. And I Also have very bad cramps, I can’t talk to my mum about it until I M certain I may be pregnant. I’ve always been the responsible child and I don’t want to feel like I’m letting her down, I have. Home pregnancy test but I don’t think that now is the right time to take it as I don’t think it has been a month since my last period. Could I be pregnant?? Please please help me! Hannah xx
