So my partner and i had unprotected sex 3 days before my ovulation i know this because i use period tracker (flo). i took ecp (trust pills, 2 doses with 12 hours in between). he didn't ejaculate in me but i'm afraid that there was pre-cm. what are my chances of getting pregnant?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting.

Pre-ejaculate fluid in itself does not contain sperm. If a male has had a recent ejaculation, sperm can be picked up in the urethra (the tube which urine and semen pass through), but once he would urinate, the sperm would be flushed out. It's very unlikely to become pregnant from pre-ejaculate.
