I had sex with this guy, and he didn't let me use a condom. of any sort. I cannot get pregnant! I'm still in highschool! I don't know what to do! I'm usually smarter about these things!

First of all, I'm so sorry your partner wasn't willing to use a condom. This isn't about you not being smart, it's about him - refusing to use a condom is a form of reproductive coercion and is totally unacceptable. Clearly, this guy is not a safe person to have a sexual relationship with.

Now, when did this happen? If it was within the last 120 hours, you can still get emergency contraception. If it was longer than that, then all you can do is wait until about two weeks after the risk, and take a pregnancy test.

Unprotected sex also poses risks of STIs, so you'll also want to get a full STI screening in about a month, and another one about six months after that.

If you need any information about where you can get EC or STI testing, just give us a shout and we'll be more than happy to help.
