Is it safe to have unprotected sex 3-4 days after my period?

I ended my period on Tuesday and was just spotting on Wednesday as a sign that my period was going to end. Today is Friday, and I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. He didn't cum inside me and I took Emergency Contraceptives right after. Am I safe?

Hi, my gf started period on 7/4 and we had sex on 13/4 without condom on, but I'm pretty sure there are no ejaculation. She usually has a 27-30 days cycle, is there any risk of pregnancy?

Hello Anon

Unprotected sex is never safe so there is always a risk. Yours is likely low risk. Condoms.

Hi Anon

Yes, pregnancy is possible as you had it as a very good time when she may be fertile. If she doesn't get her next period when expected she can take a test.

Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90% effective if taken within 72 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It is not an abortion pill. It prevents a pregnancy, it does not end one. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell.

Symptoms usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If a woman doesn’t get her next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test may be necessary although the risk is very low. Periods can often be delayed or longer/shorter as a result of taking emergency contraception. They should get back to normal the next month.
Best,
Susan
