I had unprotected sex the other day and it was'nt planned. I am 18 and my boyfriends 19. We have been going out with each other for over a year and have just started to get sexual. We have had sex about 4 times now and normally use a condoms but the other day we had none and stupidly we went ahead without. Is there anything i can do now to not get pregnant or to lower my chances. I finished my period on the 4th so i have a long wait till my next period.
Also i will get some condoms and make sure we both have some on use, but are they the best birth control and would another option be better for me? Like the pill or the injection. How safe are they, do they have side affects and how long can you use them for. I've heard the pill can cause a stroke and the injection makes your bones weak. Is this true.
