Could I be pregnant from pre-cum?

My bf and I had unprotected sex but he did not cum. He had masturbated in the last 2 hours so I'm worried his precum had something. I washed out my vagina afterword and am so so worried I could be pregnant..

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Pre-cum/ pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and no man can be 100% sure that pre-cum/ pre-ejaculatory fluid did not leak out during vaginal penetration. Pullout/withdrawal method of contraception is associated with highest failures. If urination has been done before intercourse, chances of sperms being present in the pre-cum are less. You can consider taking emergency contraception within 24-48 hours of unprotected intercourse to prevent pregnancy (especially if you were during your fertile days at the time of the intercourse). Wait and watch for your next periods. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, 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) as well as regulate your periods. Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact.
Consider being 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.
Take care.
