Consider it.: If you were not protected with another method, there is a very small possibility you could become pregnant, especially if you ovulated before the exposure (day 12-16 after starting your period). The morning after pill is very safe and has few side effects. Most importantly, make a plan with your partner for contraception before you have a "next time".
