If you have just had unprotected sex you may not yet be pregnant. Emergency contraception is not abortion, but taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex can prevent pregnancy. Learn more at not-2-late.com (not affiliated with NAF).

If you suspect that you are pregnant, it is best to find out right away. The sooner you know, the more time you will have to make choices about what you want to do.

What Are Some of the Early Symptoms of Pregnancy?

  • Missed periods
  • Periods with a lighter flow or shorter duration than usual
  • Breast tenderness
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Frequent urination
  • Changes in appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling bloated and/or crampy
  • Changes in digestion (constipation, heartburn, etc.)
  • Abdominal enlargement
  • Clothes feel tighter
  • Mood changes

If you have some or all of these symptoms, it does not mean you are definitely pregnant. You can also be pregnant and have none of these symptoms. The only way to be certain is to take a pregnancy test.
