I agree with Daisy, my suggestion is to visit have her visit her gynecologist for a check up to see whether she's pregnant or not. If you're not ready to be parents right now, then I suggest talking to her gynecologist about taking further steps. If you're talking about the-morning-after pill - This works only if she drinks it within 72 hours from the time when you had the unprotected sex. If you have more questions feel free to ask. Hopefully I helped.

Wish you all the best,

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Not sure of your question. If she misses her period, due to her being pregnant.  Then the next step would be for her to start taking care of herself, by making an appointment with her OBGYN.  If she is not pregnant and wants to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. She needs to start using protection such as condom or birth control pills. Hope this was helpful?
