I'm on my third week of the Ortho-Evra patch, and my boyfriend and I were very intensely fooling around last night--we didn't go all the way, but his penis ended up right at or near my vagina several times. He didn't cum, but I know that there's a risk with pre-cum. Should I go and get Plan B here?

I looked on the ortho evra site and it says you should *only* place it on the : 'upper outer arm, upper torso (front and back, excluding the breasts), abdomen, or buttock.'
Putting it other places can compromise how effective it is, before using birth control you should always read how you should properly use it because if you don't it may not work properly. You may have had a pregnancy risk because of the contact with precum around your vagina.
I don't know if it is one serious enough to use EC, but your question might be answered by someone more qualified if you post it in the 'emergency' section where only Scarleteen volunteers, who would know how much of a risk this is could give you advice, since this is a very time sensitive subject.
If I were in your situation I would try and call the ortho evra company or your local pharmacy for advice, and would buy the EC just in case the advice indicated I should do so, and if not, so I would have it on hand if I needed it for another time where there might be a reason for it's use.
