What should you do if you’ve had unprotected sex? Dr Anjali Kumar talks to SheThePeople on the same, also providing information on the dangers of unprotected sex. She additionally talks about STDs, pregnancy from unprotected sex, safe days in the menstrual cycle, birth control pills, and more.

Dr Anjali Kumar, gynaecologist, obstetrician, endoscopic surgeon, and high-risk pregnancy specialist, talks to SheThePeople TV about the dangers of unprotected sex and what should be done when faced with such a situation. Starting off, one should only have unprotected sex when they are planning a pregnancy, with a monogamous partner.

The two main problems that can arise from indulging in unprotected sex are:

  1. Sexually Transmitted Infection
  2. Unplanned Pregnancy

In case a couple is not planning for pregnancy and wants to be away from getting Sexually Transmitted Infections and diseases, they must avoid having unprotected sex. Unprotected sex is any sexual activity or intercourse done without a condom or any other contraception.

What should you do if you’ve had unprotected sex?

Dr Kumar specifically states that there is nothing called safe days in the menstrual cycle. Safe Days are usually widely believed to be days where one can avoid pregnancy, even without using a contraceptive method. She busts this myth about safe days, stating “All days are unsafe.”

A woman can get pregnant even when she is on her period. The probability of pregnancy is higher during the middle of your menstrual cycle, around the ovulation period, otherwise known as the fertile period. She presses upon the importance of being very sure and comfortable with a partner while getting involved in any sexual activity. It is very important to know the sexual history of your partner prior to becoming physically intimate with a person. Women should keep in mind that it is their right to know the sexual history of the person they have an intimate relationship.

It is very important that your partner uses a condom. Any excuse to do otherwise or have unprotected sex should not be entertained to avoid any kind of STIs or pregnancy. Another way to avoid pregnancy and other dangers of unprotected sex is to consult a doctor and get a prescription for birth control pills. Birth control pills should not be confused with emergency contraceptive pills. It is very important to know the difference between the two.

Raising awareness around stigmatised topics such as sexual health, unprotected sex, and contraceptives among young women is important. It is time to start the conversation about young women’s sexual choices and sexual health and empower them by providing correct and necessary information about the same.
