Amongst the hearts, flowers, candy, and love, it is easy to get swept away in the romance typical of Valentine's Day. Maybe Cupid's arrow caught you off guard? If you found yourself in this situation, where the love potion took over, and you engaged in sexual intercourse without thinking about contraception, it is not too late to take steps to reduce the chances of a potential pregnancy.
Although people may be aware of emergency contraception, many do not take advantage of this option because they think it is too late. Now that the flowers are beginning to wilt and maybe some of that chocolate is melting, it is time to think about prevention. A woman 17 years of age or older can seek Plan B One-Step (emergency contraception) over the counter, and it can be taken up to 3 days after an act of unprotected intercourse.
If conceiving a little cherub was not the gift you were hoping for this Valentine's Day, then learn about the steps that can be taken to help prevent this from taking place. The sooner you seek emergency contraception, the more effective it is - there is still time!
