Since you took emergency contraception so soon after the incident, and there was no ejaculation, your risk of pregnancy here is very low. All you can do at this point is wait - a pregnancy test will be accurate 14 days after the risk happened, and we always advise taking one after using EC, but until then, just try to relax.
