My period is yet to come on the 23rd.can drinking cinnamon& large amounts of coffee help in preventing unwanted pregnancy if had unprotected sex?

If it is almost late for emergency contraception pills, ask about getting an IUD. An IUD works as emergency contraception and also benefits by preventing future pregnancies (until the IUD is removed). ...Read more
