I had sex a couple days ago (3 days ago) and the condom broke, my bf got to pull out before he came but im still worried about the risk. Its too late for me to get the contraceptive pill, but the other method left is the IUD, should i go ahead and get it? I just worry about the pain/side effects i might get, especially since i start school tomorrow, please help me!!

P.S. We both have been tested for STD's and we're clean.

Actually, recent studies show the the morning-after pill may still be pretty effective up to five days after the incident. So, that is what I would suggest.

IUDs of any type just are generally not advisable for younger women, but I would trust whatever advice your GYN gives you in terms of what is best. So, get into the clinic TODAY. believe me when I tell you the the side effects of emergency contraception will interfere with school a whole lot less than months of morning sickness.
