My girlfriend just had her period a week ago. We had sex last night, no protection. Can I give her the day after pill? Any side effects or damage?

In brief: You want a baby now?

If she finished her period a week ago, then she is probably somewhere around ovulation right now, which means she might conceive (not smart to have unprotected sex around this time, if you don't want a baby).
Since you've already been there, she probably should take the morning after pill asap and hope for the best. Virtually all medications have possible side effects. Speak to your pharmacist.
