If you want to prevent pregnancy, emergency contraception (like Plan B or Ella) can be taken up to five days after unprotected sex or a copper IUD can be inserted up to seven days after. Call us or a pharmacy as soon as possible to increase your chances of avoiding pregnancy.

A pregnancy test is most accurate 2-3 weeks after unprotected sex or after a missed period. It takes time for pregnancy to occur and for the HCG hormones to build up to a detectable level in the urine.
