Brief Answer:
pregnancy chances are rare

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,welcome to healthcare magic.I understand your concern.
In my opinion as the ejaculation dint occur there is no chance of pregnancy.
Also you have taken postinor2 which is effective if taken within time.As you have taken 1st dose within 72 hours of unprotected sex and 2 nd dose after 11 hours of 1 st dose the chance of pregnancy is rare.
Kindly let me know if your menstrual cycles are regular and your expected date of the period to know if the intercourse was done in safe period or not.
So relax.
Hope this satisfies your query.

Brief Answer:
intercourse was in safe period

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,thanks for the information.I understand your concern.
In my opinion the intercourse was done in safe period.
According to your expected period the 27 to 31 is considered as unsafe period.
But this might not be accurate in case of irregular cycles.
As the ejaculation was not done and emergency contraception is taken there are no chances of pregnancy.
Nothing to worry.
Hope this satisfies your query.
