if it's been under 100 hours since the incident occured, you can go to the emergency room and get emergency contraception. it'll cost about $35. Scrape up the money and get it because lord knows if you can't afford $35 for a pill, how the heck are you gonna afford to raise a baby? Emergency contraception is most effective within 72 hours, but is still good up to 100 or even 120 hours. So hurry up and go get it.
If you are past the 120 hour mark, then you will need to wait 10-14 days following the sexual encounter to take a home pregnancy test.
And good luck to oyu with that. Also, if you simply cannot afford to buy things like condoms, lubricant and birth control nor afford to pay for STD screens and doctor visits you are not ready to have sex. So please, if you can't exercise common sense or can't afford take care of your health, stop having sex till you can.
