When posting, please try to use correct spelling and grammar so that your posts are easier to understand.

First of all, pre-ejaculate can contain sperm, so it definitely can get you pregnant. There's no percentage that we can give you to compare the pregnancy risk between semen and pre-ejaculate, but we have a handy risk assessment chart here: What's The Risk? - Five Easy Pregnancy Risk Assessment Flow Charts

It may take a few years for your cycle to start being more regular, and you're right about stress and other factors leading to irregular periods.

There are *no* signs (vomiting, headaches, whatever) of pregnancy except for a pregnancy test.

Pregnancy tests are not effective until 10 days after unprotected sexual activity or the first day of your missed period.

Since you have a lot of questions, I recommend reading Am I pregnant?) thorougly and carefully. It should answer most of your questions, and if you want more information, you can post again.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Once you're pregnant, taking a contraceptive pill will not make the pregnancy go away.

Emergency contraception works (basically) by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus, which is why it needs to be taken within 72 hours after an incident of unprotected sex.

But if a pregnancy test taken at the right time shows you are pregnant, then your choices are abortion, adoption, or keeping the baby.
