Dear Worried

If your period does not come on the date that you expect it, then you should go for a pregnancy test one week after your due date. It is important for you to know that an 'emergency pill' can be taken after unprotected intercourse, and it is very effective but only if it is taken within 72 hours of intercourse. It is advisable for you to go to a Family Planning clinic where you should go on to a reliable contraceptive and it is free of charge at the clinc, - or you could go to your own doctor for advice about contraceptives.
