Take a pregnancy test to make sure you are pregnant. Pregnancy tests can be bought from pharmacies and stores. You can also contact your local health station where a pregnancy can be discovered from a specimen of urine in a laboratory.
If you wish to continue your pregnancy, please contact a maternity clinic in your area.
Emergency contraception is not a method of contraception as such, but it is meant for situations where actual contraception has failed.
An example case could be that contraceptive pills were forgotten or the use of a condom failed / was forgotten. Emergency contraception can be done in two different ways, either with an emergency contraceptive pill (‘morning-after pill’) or with a copper coil (an intrauterine device).
