last month in june me and my ex-boyfriend had hooked up like we usually had when we were together.
we were fooling around quite a bit and i noticed his pre-cum had gotten quite close to my vaginal area and when he went to finger me, i wasn't sure if his finger had accidentally touched it or not, so to be sure i took an EC 2 days later (it happened on a late saturday night/early sunday morning, i tool the pills on a monday) should i be okay?

and does anyone know anything about loestrin24?
i've recently started taking these pills because ocella gave me really bad mood swings and i know in all birth controls if you miss a day or two sometimes you get breakthrough bleeding, well i missed two pills on accident and i got the bleeding last wednesday and it still hasn't stopped.
should i be concerned about either of these things?

The pregnancy risk was low to begin with, and taking emergency contraception recently after the incident lowers that risk even more, if not entirely.

Here's a page that tells you levels of pregnancy risk with various activities, to help you figure stuff like this out for the future: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/reproduction/whats_the_risk_easy_pregnancy_risk_assessments

And this one relates more specifically to your current situation: http://www.scarleteen.com/pregnancy_risk_assessment_dry_sex

If you're worried about the bleeding, you can consult the doctor that prescribed the BC pills to you. Everyone reacts to missed or skipped pills differently, so it's very possible that your breakthrough bleeding is just lasting a while.

Also, this post hasn't got any other reply at all, and I'm not even a volunteer, sorry about that! Do you have any other questions or concerns? And for future reference, with a question like this that you want answered as soon as possible, you can post it in the "ask scarleteen" or "emergencies and crises" sections and it should be replied to a lot sooner [Smile]
