Chance of pregnancy?

My boyfriend and I were messing around and we did some foreplay. I gave him a blow job but I don't think he came. After that, we went to try anal but his penis touched my vagina and I said no and we stopped immediately. We didn't use a condom.
I got so nervous and anxious the next day that there could be a rick of pregnancy so I went and bought the morning after pill. (Provenelle, or something) it was about 17 hours after that I took it.
I felt a but sick but I was okay other than that. I read that it may prevent or stop ovulation but I am still ovulating.
Whatre the risks of pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about the chance for pregnancy and effectiveness of an emergency contraceptive.

There is always a risk when you have genital to genital contact. The risk increases if there is penetration and ejaculation during ovulation.

Emergency contraceptives prevent pregnancy two ways. One, they prevent ovulation. Two, they cause changes in the cervical mucus to make it harder for sperm to reach a released egg.

You will know if it worked if you have vaginal bleeding within the next three weeks.

What do you think the chances of me being pregnant are? I'm pretty sure that I've already ovulated and I've been getting a lot of mucus (I do every month, throughout). Is there any other way to prevent being pregnant right now, if there is a big chance that I am?
I've read stuff online and it says that the morning after pill doesn't work if you've already ovulated but I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said it will and the chances of me being pregnant are 1/100. Very slim to none. 99% that im not.

Hello Anonymous,

There is nothing more to do. You took the emergency contraceptive pill. Please re-read my previous reply, in which I explained that the pill works in two ways.

Very slight risk + taking ECP = probably not pregnant.

Hi again,
My period is late two days now and I'm on the third day. I have sore boobs and slightly brown discharge here and there, but no signs on my period coming other than that. I read that if you take the ECP after ovulation it doesn't work and I think I did so what are the chances of me being pregnant? Not too sure whether my boyfriend came or not that night.

Hi Anonymous,

Indeed, an emergency contraceptive is most effective in preventing pregnancy when it is taken prior to ovulation.

A critical element of the menstrual cycle is the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) over a 24 to 48 hour period; this LH surge stimulates the ovary to release an egg.

EC pills effectively inhibit or delay the release of the egg if taken at the right time during the cycle. While levonorgestrel EC pills are effective only if taken before the LH surge, ECP containing ulipristal acetate can still work after the LH surge has begun,(but is no longer effective once LH reaches its peak concentration.

There is some evidence that ulipristal acetate can produce changes in the uterine lining, but whether these changes would impair the implantation of a fertilized egg is unknown.

You can wait until your period is late by at least one week, and then take a pregnancy test.
