Welcome back to ehealthforum,
As I have explained before, pre-ejaculatory fluid or pre-cum is known to contain sperms in it even though the male has urinated before. The sperms can be released into the lubrication fluid anytime once the penis is erect. The sperms in the pre-cum can travel (swim) in the wetness upwards inside the female genital tract. If you were in your fertile period (time of egg release from ovary) during the time of contact with pre-ejaculatory fluid or pre-cum, then you do stand risk of getting pregnant.
If 72 hours are not over since the incident, then consider taking emergency contraception or meet your gynecologist to take further action. Use protection each time you are having intercourse or consider getting started on birth control measures if you intend to remain sexually active.
