User :   Hello. I missed my pill yesterday and realised this morning, however I had sex last night. there was initial penetration without a condom for 10-15 seconds but no ejaculation then we stopped and used a condom for the remainder. i was wondering whether or not it is worthwhile getting the morning after pill just in case and what my risk level is of pregnancy?
