Am I Pregnant? : If You Might Be Pregnant

Unprotected Sex

Most people think of unprotected sex as birth control-free sex. They mean that no barrier methods (such as a condom or diaphragm) and no hormonal methods (such as the pill, patch, or shot) were being used.

Technically, the term “unprotected sex” refers to any sexual activity (oral, vaginal, anal, or hand-to-genital contact) without using a form of birth control or a barrier such as a male or female condom. After unprotected sex, many women worry about becoming pregnant.

If you think you may be pregnant, our caring staff offers confidential appointments to receive a free pregnancy test. Making an appointment at one of our five pregnancy clinics can give you peace of mind.

Unprotected sex also carries the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease or infection (STD or STI). There are many types of STDs. Some are spread through physical contact with the infected area and some spread through contact with fluid such as blood or semen. Most STDs do not show visible symptoms right away, but they are still contagious. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to get tested.

While our pregnancy centers do not offer STD testing, our caring professionals are trained to discuss the risks of STDs and can refer for local testing in your area.
