If you have sex around the

If you have sex around the time you ovulate, then yes, you are at risk of pregnancy. Pregnancy happens when sperm from your partner come in contact with an egg inside your uterus. The egg lives for 24-48 hours, and the sperm can live inside the body for several days as well, waiting for the egg to be released.

Many doctors will recommend Emergency Contraceptive Pills (ECPs) if you have unprotected intercourse, and it has not yet been 72 hours since the event. However, it is now too late for you to take ECPs. You can take a pregnancy test as soon as your period is late, or even a bit before your period is due with some tests. You can contact a local pregnancy center for a free test by calling 800-395-HELP.

Best of luck,
