I think I might be pregnant
The first thing to do is take a pregnancy test and you can get one for free at a number of 4YP clinics and services. If you are pregnant then the clinic you attend will be able to offer you support and advice. The earlier you find out, the more options you have.
Remember you can always ask for a female doctor if that would make you feel more comfortable.
If you have had unprotected sex within the last 72 hours (3 days) you can get free emergency contraception from one of the many services across Bristol including pharmacies that are 4YP badged. Just search for your nearest here.
Another option is that you can have an IUD coil fitted (up to 120 hours/5 days later sometimes longer still). You will need to go to a sexual health clinic for this. The main thing to remember is that you should continue to use condoms if you are having sex.
You will need to consider going for an STI test as well and you can find your nearest 4YP service through our directory. Tests are pain free and relatively quick and if you do have an STI, the clinic will help treat the problem too.
Remember, condoms are the only form of contraception that protects you from pregnancy AND STIs but there are lots of contraceptive options to choose from. It’s important you choose the one that suits you and when you attend a clinic for an STI test, you can ask about your options.
