Am I pregnant?

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, I'm not supposed to get my period for a while, but I'm nervous. I was ovulating and not on birth control. He's 95% sure he pulled out in time, but he came quickly after pulling out. He's sure that nothing got inside, and from what I could tell he was right, but to be sure, I took the "take action" pill within 5 hours. I know there's always a possibility from unprotected sex, but with these circmstances (pill, etc.) do you think I could be pregnant ?

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Taking the emergency contraceptive means you had protected sex, not unprotected sex.  Emergency contraceptives do prevent pregnancy even when the male ejaculated directly into the vagina.  

He did not ejaculate into your vagina, AND you took EC, so there is no possibility of pregnancy.
