Okay so my bf and I were having sex.....
And he accidentally started to come inside of me. However he did pull out and finished on his hand....
He's taken a lot of blows below if ya know what I mean,...I tried to get as much out as I could (since he wasn't up by my cervix)
However I ovulated 2 days ago....
What are my chances of being pregnant? What should I do to minimize pregnancy

Thank you so much!! I asked this the day it happened so I had ovulated 2 days before our incident. Should I still take the pill? I found out from his mom that night that miscarriages run on both of our sides very highly.

Hi Anonymous,

By the time you read my reply, more than 72 hours have passed since the incident. It is too late to take an ECP and expect it to be effective.

All that you can do now is wait for your next period. There is the option of taking an early response pregnancy test, which can be taken five days before your period is expected to start.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us for advice and what to do now. It's a tough one!

Worse case scenario is conception may have already happened. It only takes one sperm to fertilize an egg. Your boyfriend did ejaculate in your vagina. Did this happen two days after ovulation or before?

During your window of ovulation, an egg is only available to be fertilized for about 12-24 hours. But since sperm can live in the body for 3-5 days after sex, and the egg is available for one day, your most fertile time is considered to be about 5-7 days.

The only option is taking an emergency contraceptive. But, an ECP prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. In your case, that happened. It can also cause changes in the cervical mucus to make it harder for sperm to reach the egg.

And the pill is effective if taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.

Anonymous, I know you are hoping for a more direct answer, but I really can't give you one.
