You should always try to stay safe during sex, but if it’s the morning after and you haven’t used any protection, it isn’t necessarily the end of the world. Follow the advice below and you should be fine. Unsafe sex is definitely not something you should make a habit of though, as one day the consequences of unprotected intercourse might turn out to be a little more than you bargained for.

Act fast. You can use Post-Coital Contraceptives after you have unprotected sex (did not use birth control). You can also use these if your birth control did not work (i.e., the condom broke). You must swallow the pills within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. For the best chance for it to work, you should start taking the pills as soon as possible after unprotected sex.34
