Unprotected sex means a risk of sexually transmitted infections

Protection against STIs

Emergency contraceptive pills do not protect against sexually transmitted infections.

If you have had unprotected sex you might be at risk of having caught a sexually transmitted infection. If this might be the case, talk to your doctor, or another healthcare professional, about getting tested. They can put your mind at rest, provide treatment and explain how you can avoid passing the infection on to other people with whom you have sex.
