ok, so my boyfriend and i engaged in manual sex over the weekend, and only later did i realize that i might have touched part of my vulva with a finger that could (but we don't know if it did) have come in contact with pre-cum. I was going to the bathroom at the time, but i'm pretty sure my hand had direct contact with skin. it's still within the 120 hrs for using ec, 80-90 hrs to be more precise, but this morning sometime btwn 70 and 80 hrs after contact i think i started my period. it seems redder than normal and i don't know if it's at a weird time or not so i was worried that it wasn't my period and was some sort of pregnancy related thing. it's about the right amount for my period and it's still going but i want to know if i could be pregnant... i really don't want to be! and this is the only thing i've ever done that could cause risk. the manual sex assessment said that there was a no to very low chance of pregnancy in a situation like this, but the very low chance is keeping me awake at night... advice please!

What you're describing really sounds like it put you at 0 risk for pregnancy. Really, for there to be even a realistic risk for pregnancy through manual sex, your or your partner's hands would literally have to be soaked with ejaculate or pre-ejaculate and come in direct contract with your vulva/vaginal opening.

One finger brushing your vulva, that may have had just a little contact with pre-ejaculate would not pose a pregnancy risk.

I wouldn't recommend EC in this situation, and hopefully this reassured you that you really shouldn't have anything to worry about!

thanks for peace of mind... i also talked to a nurse in the gynocology dept. here at my school... she said the same thing, but she also said i could take plan b if i really wanted to, and so i talked to my boyfriend and we decided that i should go ahead and do it... anyway, i'm not terribly worried abt side effects bc some periods i deal with pretty strong versions of all those symptoms even without a pill. but i'm definitely going on some sort of hormonal bc soon, just to maybe make me feel better during my period and to avoid random freakouts like this.

thanks a lot for your help!
