See your doctor: If you had unprotected sex, not on a birth control and 24 days late, its advisable to see your doctor for proper evaluation/rule out of pregnancy.You can also use this visit to discuss with your doctor which birth control would be appropriate for you. Please always remember to practice safe sex ( use condoms). Know that birth control will not protect from sexually transmitted diseases. Take care.
