Have you ever considered how fat she is going to get when she is pregnant. You are both playing a dangerous game here, and unless you are prepared for parenthood or an abortion these are your alternatives.

The pill doesn't make you fat, it's eating that makes you fat.Emergency contraception (EC) is a pregnancy prevention option after having unprotected intercourse due to a birth control failure, being swept away by the moment, or rape. If a woman has had unprotected intercourse more than once in one night (or one day), she does not need to take more than one course of EC. To be as effective as possible in preventing pregnancy, a complete, single set of EC pills needs to be taken within 72 hours (the sooner, the better) of unprotected intercourse (specifically from the time of the first occasion, if it happened more than once).

EC does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). For safer sex, use condoms.

It may make sense to talk with a health care provider to look into a more ongoing, reliable form of contraception. There are many choices available, such as oral contraceptive pills, a diaphragm, a cervical cap, a contraceptive patch, a contraceptive ring, a contraceptive injection or implant, or an IUD.

Good luck, and remember to be safe.
