(in his pants) after he came he procedeed to touch himself and then touched me directly, (there was fresh sperm) the next day i got depo provera (8/14), and on (8/17) i got next choice, I was suppose to have my period yesterday and it hasnt started. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Am I in the clear, or is it too soon to tell if im pregnant?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Emergency contraceptive pills might not work in preventing pregnancy if taken later than 48-72 hours of your unprotected sexual contact. If pre-cum or semen has come in contact with vagina (with fingering or genital contact) chances of pregnancy are possible (if you are closer to your fertile days around time of intercourse). Your periods can also be delayed due to effects of ECP (these contain high dosages of hormones). Wait and watch for your next periods which can be delayed. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If pregnancy is suspected, or if you miss your periods, or if you have abnormal periods, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
