    Is pregnancy possible despite taking emergency contraceptive pills?

Posted on Tue, 4 Jul 2017 in Women's Health
Question: Hi doctor I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend last night around 7pm, I used the pull-out method and did not ejaculate inside her. We only did it for 5 to 10mins. This morning she took her first postinor 2 pill at 11am and the second pill 12 hours later at 11pm can I know how safe is she from pregnancy? She's on her fertile period by the way.

Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
If she had emergency contraceptive pills within 72 hours of the unprotected intercourse, then the pregnancy is prevented in 95-98% cases.
So, there is absolutely no chance of pregnancy.
I will suggest you not to worry.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

It is said that for some guys, precum does contains sperms I'm still a little afraid that she'll get pregnant. Sorry this will be the last question I guess
