Chances of Pregnancy?

Hi there. So I know this was dumb and you should always be safe regardless, and I am far too paranoid to let this happen again. It was unplanned, and will from now on be planned.
Last night at the spur of the moment my boyfriend of 5 months and I decided to have sex. Because of how tight I am he only got a little more than the tip in before the pain was too much. So I guess it was kind of sex. He was definitely in just not a lot. Anyways since it was unplanned he didn't have a condom and I've never been on birth control because the last time I even attempted sex was 2 years ago. I'm almost 20, he's almost 21. But he's more experienced than I am so I chose to trust him on this

Anyways, he assured me he wasn't going to come that he had earlier that day. And this mostly was just a trial to see how tight I actually was not actual sexy sex. I reserved the right to blow up at him if anything happens. But I know there is still such a thing as precm.
I had been reading up on "best times to not get pregnant" lately because I am an extremely paranoid person and I read on some new moms website that the rule of thumb is a week before and week after your period are generally safe.
My period ended on the 31st and today is the 3rd. Also the app i use to track it and have for months says I'm not fertile for 4-5 more days and the little symbol for ovulation is on the 13th.

Again, I know it was dumb especially with how paranoid I am. Unless he came without me knowing I don't think he did. I peed right after because I had to pee. I don't know if that matters.
Plan B is very expensive here, so I only want to get it if you women here who know more than I do think I need it. It also messes up my cycle to take Plan B. I took it out of paranoia two years ago after my last sex attempt and it basically flipped my cycle. So Plan B only if necessarily.

How much should I be worried? What should I do? This will not happen again I guarantee it.

Hello casnari,

Thank you for reaching out to us for advice.

Pre ejaculate fluid itself does not contain sperm. If the male has had a previous but recent ejaculation, such as with masturbation, some sperm can remain in his urethra. Once he urinates, any stowaway sperm is flushed out.

A woman is most likely to become pregnant if she has unprotected intercourse five days before and or on the day of ovulation. Generally, ovulation occurs around day 14 of the menstrual cycle.

casnari, I think you were not at risk for becoming pregnant because you had not yet ovulated, but most importantly, he did not fully penetrate and ejaculate.

Starting your period will confirm no pregnancy. do try to relax because stressing out can cause a delay and only add to your anxiety.
