Speak to a health professional! Any action you take to discontinue a pregnancy could cause her very serious damage to not only her reproductive organs but her whole self depending on what it is you do. Go see a doctor or speak with a pharmacist.

I heard talk of it being available over the counter but I don't know the specifics. You would have to research it a bit to find out if that's available anywhere. If it is then it likely isn't available everywhere. Again, I don't know the specifics on its availability. I only know that if you haven't used it within 48 hours of the intercourse when you suspect a pregnancy may have occurred, then you can't use it and that's no longer an option.
After 4 days, or even after the 48 hours when you could have used the morning after pill, if you haven't spoken to a doctor about taking that pill then if she is pregnant you will only be speaking to the doctor about keeping or not keeping the pregnancy. Your options after the window when you could have used that pill (the first 48 hours after the intercourse in which you suspect a pregnancy may have occurred) and she is pregnant are keep the pregnancy to term or not, and if you choose to carry it to term then your options are raising it or adoption etc.
I understand the thought process that the morning after pill terminates a pregnancy. If it's available over the counter then why not just go get it if you can? What's the difference between 48 hours and 96 hours? There is a huge difference. She could do very serious damage to herself if she isn't honest about the timeline. Please don't seriously consider this.
Take a pregnancy test. If it's negative and she still misses her period take another after she's completely missed it and speak with a doctor if she misses her period whether the test is positive or not. Just to be sure, it's a good idea to speak with a doctor if you suspect a pregnancy occurred even if the over the counter test is negative.
Again, after those first 48 hours your only safe options, if she is pregnant (or has missed her period), are to speak to a doctor. Please don't fool around with any other options without speaking to a medical professional. For her safety.
If parents are an issue here and you are concerned with them finding out please just speak with them. For the safety of the girl they should know what's going on if her health is at stake. The hardest part is brooching the subject. Once you get those first few words out it gets easier.

I don't know about that. If that were true, there weren't be as many teenagers knocked up. At 21 you should know this info by now though for sure.

No offense to you, but you should not be having sex if you are not taking the necessary precautions. I understand sex is spontaneous.. but be careful in the future. Condoms don't take that long to put on, and they are very effective. I wish the best for you and your girlfriend... be very safe in whatever you choose.

Both of them are joking. And it's not funny, either one of you! *knocks their heads together*
Please go see a doctor if she's pregnant, and take her with you of course.
