Should I take postinor?

My boyfriend and I were together on day 7 of my cycle, a week before ovulation. On that day, he fingered me and rubbed his penis on my clitoris. It had pre-ejaculate coming out of the tip. We did not have intercourse because we didn't have protection, but we had anal sex and he came inside me. Could his sperm drip from my anus to my vagina and make me pregnant? What is my chance of pregnancy if any? Could his pre-ejaculate make me pregnant? Please help, am scared and confused. Was I on my safe days? Should I take postinor just in case?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You can take emergency contraception if that would ease your mind. Be aware that it can give you side effects including: bleeding a few days later, nausea, tender breasts and cramping. This does not mean you are pregnant.
It is highly unlikely that any sperm traveled through the vagina to lodge in your cervical fluid. Sperm are strong swimmers but the conditions must be ideal for them to survive more than a few minutes. Since you were not ovulating, this makes pregnancy also impossible.
In the future I suggest you avoid sexual activity that makes you worried afterward. It can't hurt to wait till you're emotionally ready.

Hi, its now day 23 of my cycle and its been about two weeks since I had sex(as earlier stated in the question). I am having blood from my vagina, its very little compared to periods and I am very worried. I'm also having cramping on my lower belly, otherwise I have had no signs of pregnancy. My appetite is the same, am not craving stuff or having morning sickness or any mood swings. Could you know what is happening to me? I did not take postinor when I asked you about it. Please help me, I need answers. Should I take a test now?
