I had my last period on the 29th of April and finished may 5th. Then had my first ever sex on may 8th though there was no penetration as he was about to penetrate I told him to stop because I was scared. I don't know what type of sex that is called. No ejaculation either but not sure if there was precum. Out of fear I decided to use a morning after pill the next day that is may 10th. Suddenly may 15th she I a dark brown discharge then the next day I got her period. A little lighter than normal with few cramps. Then suddenly may 18th the period didn't come. What's going on? are these signs of pregnancy? Or what? I'm so scared.

Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

If there was no penetration or ejaculation that entered you, you would not be pregnant. If pregnancy is a concern for you, it's a good idea to learn about sex and how the human body works before you have or attempt to have intercourse. Protection should also be used.

Pre-ejaculate in itself does not contain sperm. If a man has had a recent ejaculation and has not urinated since, sperm can be picked up in the urethra. But once he urinates any sperm would be flushed out.

There was no need to take emergency contraception. From what you say, you never had sex. ECP can cause period irregularity, so you will just have to wait for your cycle to sort itself out. If you are still scared, a pregnancy test will ease your mind.
