Unprotected sex when supposed to go on period
I had unprotected sex on the day i think i was supposed to go on my periods. My boyfriend did not ejaculate inside me but we spotted some blood during the intercourse. Now i'm a bit worried, i dont know if i should take the emergency pill or wait for my periods to come. I'm scared that if i take the pill i might disturb my period, but still if i dont i'm scared i might get pregnant. please advise on what to do.

You would be safest to take the emergency Pill, but you are right that it may delay your period. The chances of falling pregnant on the day your period starts is very low, but not impossible.
