I had sex with my boyfriend and he cmed not in me but around my vagina area. I freaked out so much so we took plan B pill just in case but I don't know if there was still cm in my underwear because after he cmmed I clean myself up but I was still wet from my cm but I'm not sure if I cleaned up completely in my vagina but I took the plan b pill after he cmmed near my vagina. Can I still get pregnant someway? I took the pill after sex but I'm worried there was his cm still in my underwear or outside of my vagina .

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Emergency contraception only works if there IS ejaculation, otherwise there would be no need to take it. If there is no ejaculation, EC has nothing to work with.

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, breast pain, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell.
The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.
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. We cannot predict this for our readers in terms of length of delays. Each women is different. Periods should get back to normal by the second cycle after.
