Me and my boyfriend were touching each other this morning (I am in the UK- different time zones, probably mildly confusing) - his penis slipped slightly inside my vagina (really not very far - only just the entrance). It's only now that I've actually begun worrying about this. I was wet, naturally lubricated, so I could not tell how much precum there was, but he definitely didn't actually ejaculate at all then - so no ejaculate went inside me. We didn't use a condom (we have them, but were not planning on penetrative sex at that time), so is there a risk I could be pregnant? If so, how likely is this?

We are in a close, trusting relationship, we have condoms etc, I'm just mildly concerned about this.

I am going to the doctors on wednesday anyway, for something else, so I would be able to discuss this then, but obviously if there is a risk of pregnancy, then I would rather get some emergency contraception now!

Most likely I am just overreacting, because it was only precum if anything (we had just woken up, so any ejaculate from before would have dried completely), but I would like some advice.

Pre-cum can contain sperm, so yes, you have had a pregnancy risk. It's not as big as it would be if ejaculate had been present, but it's still there. If you do not want to become pregnant, you should consider obtaining EC (which can be effective for up to 120 hours after the risk).

Just to let you know, I've taken EC, so hopefully it should be okay. Definitely going to discuss contraception with my doc (have an appointment on wednesday), and not let this happen again. A bit of a wake-up call!
