Pregnancy doubt.

Hello Doctor, I have a pregnancy doubt. I recently got married. I was participating in sex without any safe measures with my life partner. Her menses cycle completed on 8th Feb. We are not interested in having a child for 2 years. But we want to do sex without protection. Please help me out what we have to take precautions or measures. Thank you.
