Unprotected sex, with or without ejaculation, presents both a pregnancy risk and an STD risk. You need to advise your girlfriend to obtain EC within 120 hours of the incident, and if you both haven't been tested for STDs, you guys need to get on that, too.
It doesn't matter if it's your first or 500th time- unprotected sex presents a pregnancy risk. Even if you didn't ejaculate in her, pre-ejaculate can contain sperm, and it only takes ONE to fertilize an egg.
Withdrawal has a 30% failure rate because pre-ejaculatory fluid often contains sperm. This presented a pregnancy risk, and she needs to seek emergency contraception if she wishes to avoid pregnancy.
STI screenings need to happen, too. Two reasons for this:
First, no prior sexual activity is a low risk of disease transmission, not zero. For example, up to 80% of the population has oral herpes in the form of cold sores; this can be spread to the genitals during unprotected sexual activity. Many people catch it as kids from kissing relatives or sharing cups, so not having had sex means zilch.
Second, people lie about prior sexual activity all the time, as much as it would be great if everybody could trust people they date. Many people roll with it and trust their partners to -- surpise! -- end up with an infection.
So, emergency contraception is a must here, and a full STI test each will ensure the overall sexual health of you both.
