My boyfriend and I rubbed genitals with no penetration or ejaculation and within 24 hours I took the plan b emergency contraceptive pill, do i still have a high risk of pregnancy?

If there was no ejaculation, then the risk was only low to moderate to start with. Taking Plan B so quickly reduced the risk further, but it is not possible for us to put an exact number to that.

Do be aware that direct genital contact also poses STI risks, so you'll want to make sure you are up to date on your testing.
