My friend was hanging out with this one guy she liked..and he ended up doing things to her that werent supposed to happen and ejaculated in her. So 2-3 days later she went to her gynecologist and got put on birth control, which started her on a new cycle. This happened on the 17th day of her cycle. Could she still be pregnant even though she was put on the pill a few days after the incident?

It is still possible to be pregnant, as the pill doesn't terminate a pregnancy. If it's been more than 10-14 days, your friend can take a pregnancy test to know for sure.
Also, you say "he ended up doing things to her that werent supposed to happen". Was this consensual (she wanted it to happen?)

No, she didnt want it to happen. So it wasnt exactly consensual.

What you're describing is your friend being raped. Has she contacted the authorities/told anyone? Is this guy still around/is she still in danger? Does she need support/a point towards resources nearby in terms of counseling/advocacy?

Did the doctor know she had a pregnancy risk before prescribing the pill? If so, providers are not to prescribe them until a pregnancy test is negative. Your friend also needs/needed to be screened for STI's, so that would be another disservice of this doctor in the instance they knew and neglected screenings.

Pregnancy isn't the only concern, here, though very valid.

Yes shes told people but has decided not to press charges to avoid having to deal with him. Hes around, but she isnt in danger and has many people looking out for her. She is going to see a counselor. The doctor knew there was a risk of prenancy. Her doctor put her on a high dosage of it to serve as an equivalent to a "morning after pill" and she got tested for all STD'S including HIV, results havent come in as far as I know though. But she took a pregnancy test today and it was negative.
