thanks for replying so quickly. she's wondering if she should get emergency contraception. in this situation, since pregnancy is so highly unlikely, i told her that the MAP wouldnt decrease her chances much further. was i right in telling her that? i think she is stressing over next to nothing

She pretty much has no pregnancy risk, because it seems impossible for a non-visible amount of semen to soak through her jeans, underwear, and pad. So emergency contraception isn't called for in this situation. In the future, if she uses latex gloves for manual sex, she will have even less to worry about.
