If I Get Pregnant and Am Not Ready What Are My Options?

Are Headaches a Sign of Pregnancy?

Your girlfriend should take a pregnancy test right away. While pre-cum doesn’t always contain sperm, it is possible to have sufficient amounts to fertilize an egg. Enough time has passed that an accurate result will be available with a home test kit. These tests are quick and easy and can detect HCG (the pregnancy hormone) in the urine just two weeks after ovulation. Pregnancy tests are sold at the Campus Health Pharmacy ($5.99) or any grocery store or pharmacy.

Genital Warts

Genital warts are members of the family of viruses called Human papillomavirus (HPV) that are spread by skin-to-skin contact, not by bodily fluids. There are more than 100 different types of HPV. Some types cause common warts on the hands or feet while others cause warts on the genitals. Other types of HPV may cause cellular changes on a woman’s cervix. Human papillomavirus affects 3 out of 4 Americans between the ages of 15 and 49 during their lifetime, although many never have visible signs of infection. Over 5 million new cases of genital HPV occur each year in the US.

While using a condom will provide an additional measure of pregnancy protection, the IUD alone is one of the most effective methods a woman can choose.

What is the Average Amount of Calories You Can Burn During Sex?

The short answer to your question is “it depends.” Just as with any type of physical activity, duration, intensity and body weight are all variables that will make a difference in how many calories are expended during sex. But if you are thinking about skipping your daily bike commute or regular workout at the Rec Center in favor of more“sexercise,” keep in mind that the non-coital forms of physical activity tend to burn more calories per unit of time.

Sex and Alcohol

Realizing that things may not be working out the way you want is a good first step. For most individuals who drink, the difference between a fun night out with friends and a night of regrets comes down to one thing – dosage. Light or moderate drinkers tend to enjoy more of the benefits of alcohol social, fun, relaxing) and less of the things most of us try to avoid (regrets, blackouts, hangovers). Even more seriously, heavy drinking is associated with higher rates of unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexual assault.

Condom Breakage

It’s hard to estimate your chances of pregnancy from one sexual encounter. It’s best to assume that without any contraception, being young (and presumably fertile), you are at high risk of getting pregnant. Get to a pharmacy ASAP for Plan B®, also known as the “morning after pill.” A prescriptionis NOT needed for Plan B® – just talk to the pharmacist and they will sell you the medication after confirming that you are over the age of 18 (Arizona State Law). Women 17 years of age or younger will need to see a medical provider for a prescription (this may involve parental consent since the law dictates that minors cannot be treated without their parent’s or guardian’s permission).
