Last night I got very, very merry and had unprotected sex with an ex 'friend with benefits'.

Should I risk it or go and get the pill? I still feel tipsy so I'm not thinking straight!

Depends how strongly you feel about the prospect of having an unplanned baby I guess.

Morning after pill as soon as you can get it - works best the sooner you take it.
Very bad idea to 'risk it'.

Depends whether you want a baby or not.
Why wouldn't you take it?

I'd rather pop the pill than deal with a month of aniexty worrying about missing a period.

Get it.

Yes, for all the reasons given.

Yes of course you should!
Get thee to a pharmacy. The alternative is 2 weeks of worrying, and then possibly even more stress

Do you want a baby with this man? If not, what are you thinking woman! MAP now!

Ememem84 Sun 13-Dec-15 10:06:06

Agree with pp. depends on whethe you want to be pregnant. Personally I'd go get the map. Just to be sure.

Do you want a baby? Possibly with no support from the father? If yes, go for it.

If not, definitely a MAP. It's not a good risk if you don't want a baby.

CheesyNachos Sun 13-Dec-15 10:08:22

Morning after pill straight away.

Dont risk it unless you want a baby.

TimeToMuskUp Sun 13-Dec-15 10:09:50

Go and get the pill. And some condoms. And use both.

CandlesAreBurning Sun 13-Dec-15 10:11:12

If you want a baby with him, don't take it.
If you don't want a baby then, erm, yes morning after pill from chemist today

Themodernuriahheep Sun 13-Dec-15 10:11:20

If in doubt, yes.

And get an sti test too.

Champagneformyrealfriends Sun 13-Dec-15 10:16:17

Omg take it!!! I'm pregnant (unexpected!) with my husband and that was shock enough for me! Get yourself to boots!

jamesdeandaydream Sun 13-Dec-15 10:17:34

Definitely don't want another baby just yet. It was very silly of me I know but I got carried away. Going to the chemist now.

WanderingTrolley1 Sun 13-Dec-15 10:21:58

Whereabout in your cycle are you?

For me, sex 5 days before and after my period were safe times.

Pollyputhtekettleon Sun 13-Dec-15 11:15:35

Give the man a call and see if he fancies having a baby with you. Chat through all the practicalities and financial situation and see if you both want to go ahead.

I'm joking obviously! He's clearly as big a fool as you not to use protection. Go get the MAP asap because babies are more important than just 'risking it'.

Junosmum Sun 13-Dec-15 11:16:33

Yep, get the pill. And an STI check. And if you throw up from being so very merry, get the pill again! Sounds like you had a good night!

BlueJug Sun 13-Dec-15 11:51:36

Actually Polly has it right although she was talking tongue in cheek. Does "friend" want a baby? Is he willing to pay maintenance for the next 18 years? Can you afford to give up work and or pay childcare? Who gets the kids for Christmas? Holidays?

If you want a child with the man and he wants one with you then fine, take a risk. Otherwise take the MAP

jamesdeandaydream Sun 13-Dec-15 11:52:59

Oh Polly have you never got caught up in the moment? May have been foolish but we all make silly mistakes.

It was an excellent night Junosmum fgrin
