I found this website to be very helpful and comforting a few years back so I'm hoping I can get the advice again...I'm not on birth control pills but I am sexually active (so stupid I know). On Wednesday June 20th I was sexually active with my partner a bunch of times during the night..we used a condom but everytime sex was initiated we started without a condom. My last period was June 5th which means June 20 was day 14 of my cycle; I assume I was ovulating but I didn't know and I remembered the morning after so I took norlevo. Ive taken norlevo before and it was not effective and i got pregnant but in my previous relationship, my partner came inside... now I'm 5 days in and I'm stressing out due to the fact that precum could have gotten me pregnant since I was ovulating..my next period is due first week of July... What are the chances that I might be pregnant?

HI mrgk and welcome back!
Using condoms is a very effective form of birth control when they're used effectively. As it sounds like you know, starting intercourse without the condom does decrease it's effectiveness.
How long after the sexual activity did you take norlevo? It's still possible that it will work for you even though it didn't the last time.
At this point you've done everything you can do. At this point, the only way to know if you got pregnant is to take a pregnancy test 14 or more days after the sexual activity, or once a period is late, whichever comes first.
