My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex for about 4 minutes before I said to stop because I was worried about pregnancy risks if we kept going on for longer. He was completely fine with that, but he kept fingering me with the hand he had touched is penis with. This occured yesterday and I just realized that yesterday was my estimated ovulation day! Are the chances that I could get pregnant high with the precum on his penis when he was inside me and then the precum that was on his hand when he was touching me?! I need to know quick before its too late for me to try and get the morning after pill at a free clinic if the chances are high :/ I cannoottttt be pregnanttt!!!!! :/

Pre-ejaculate really isn't anything you need to worry about per pregnancy (STIs are something else) when it comes to pregnancy and it's been on fingers. It's the unprotected intercourse that would be the concern here.

You used withdrawal. If he did not ejacualate, then that was perfect use, which presents about a 4% risk. So, it's up to you if you want more protection than that with EC.

Just so you know, unprotected intercourse also poses risks of sexually transmitted infections. have you both been recented tested for all of them, and have you also been sexually exclusive for six months or more? If not, ditching condoms poses high risks of STIs, so we don't advise doing that. Since that bell is already rung per what happened in the past, if you two are not both current with tests, I'd advise both taking care of that soon as well as talking about and using condoms from here forward until you've engaged in safer sex practices and monogamy for at least six months.

So the fact that I'm ovulating right now poses no further risk to the chance of becoming pregnant? And the pre-ejaculate that was present during intercourse has no chance of inpregnating me?

We have been monogamous for the past 10 months and this is the first time we don't use a condom. As for sti testing were planning to go together soon.

And in your opinion, do you think its neccesary for me to try and obtain EC?

As Heather said, without ejaculation, the risk of pregnancy is around 4%. Unprotected intercourse does pose some risk of pregnancy, it's the pre-ejaculate on his hands that would not pose a risk, but as you had unprotected intercourse as well you have had a risk. As for getting EC, it's really up to you how comfortable you are with the level of risk and whether you want to reduce that with EC.

Well thank you for helping me clear this up. I appreciate both responses. I'll speak to my boyfriend about gettign ec if we decide we wannt to go down that path. This helped ease my mind a bit.

Also if its not too much of a hassle, my friends had unprotected intercourse as well. He pulled out, ejaculated, cleaned himself off a bit and then went inside of her again right away. its been 2 weeks since then and she hasn't gotten her period but shee's taken the plan b pill 3 months ago. Could the pill be messing with her hormones and be belating her period or is the risk higher for them?

Your friend's partner should just take a pregnancy test, since in his case, the risk of pregnancy was indeed higher for them than for you.
