Am I pregnant and how to stop it

I had unprotected sex at the start of this month & I normally get my period at the end of the month but my period has not come yet, is there a chance that I'm pregnant & if so how can I stop the pregnancy at home??

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you had unprotected sex in the first week of month and expect periods in the last week, then chances of pregnancy are less. Since February has 28 days, please wait until 3-4th of March. It is now too late to prevent pregnancy. If you have risky unprotected sex then you must take an emergency contraception within 48 hours. Now you should wait until first few days of March and if you do not get your periods, please take a pregnancy test and see. Hope this helps. Take care!
