Could I be pregnant from pre-ejaculate 3 days prior to expexted period?

My boyfriend and I and had outercourse 3 days prior to my expected period. During this we got a bit too carried away and I am very positive that I was exposed to pre-ejaculate (no actual ejaculation). Out of precaution/panic I took a plan B pill about 32 hours later. Now my period is 2 days late and I am experiencing some light cramping with clear spotting. What is the likelihood that I may be pregnant. If this information helps, my cycle tends to be about 25 to 28 days apart and I'm pretty sure I wasn't ovulating when this occurred with my boyfriend.

I had taken my 7th birth control pill the night before and I decided to have sex the next day around 12 in the afternoon, because the packet that came with the pill said I only needs to wait 7 days, we used a condom and only had sex for a short 5- 8 minutes stopping in between , there was pre cum in the condom before we started . He held it in me for awhile but his boner never went away. My boyfriend said it didn't break , but I'm still worried it may of leaked . And he had no sperm in the pre CUm from previous ejaculation . I also take my pills correctly . Does this pose any chance of pregnancy ?

Hi Anon

No - there is no risk - you used a condom and are on the Pill for the correct amount of time. Good for you for being so responsible!

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

If you were exposed to preejaculate then this wasn't outercourse.

Plan B is 90-95% effective if taken in 24 hours so you were pretty close.

Your symptoms are probably that of PMS and not pregnancy. Either way, your risk is extremely low.
