Welcome to ehealthforum,
Since hymen has passages in it through which menstrual blood comes out, and through these passages, sperms can also enter inside even if there is no penetration, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely if semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, especially if you were close to your fertile days/around ovulation time at time of sexual contact. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse/sexual contact, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. If you are not ready for pregnancy you should consider taking emergency contraception within 48 hours of your unprotected sexual contact. Wait and watch for your next periods. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation if periods are missed or abnormal, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
