no ejaculation or insertion

User Profile
So my girlfriend and I were engaging in some sexual activity on Friday the 14th of August, and although there was no ejaculation or insertion (the penis was basically never near the vagina), I used a tissue to clean up, and fingered her after. She feels nervous that I might have had a trace on my finger, but I\'m fairly certain I didn't, and I also remember inserting my left hand only (i cleaned up with my right because I'm not that coordinated with my left). After a while, I decided to obtain a morning after pill just to comfort her, and the pharmacist said the chances of success were 65%, although when I told him this story he said the odds were very unlikely. (We bought the pill around 42 hours after the incident). Recently, she said one of her breasts felt slightly tender, she feels more tired, feels like she's coming down with a cold, and recently she believes she had a little bit of spotting. Are any of these symptoms of concern, and what should I do to prevent pregnancy?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to distinguish early pregnancy symptoms and symptoms due to side effects of hormonal contraceptive use. Stress level changes and lifestyle changes also affect hormonal pattern causing period abnormalities. Avoid further unprotected sexual contact. Wait and watch for her periods that can be delayed due to ECP use. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy. She should avoid further use of emergency contraception.
Take care.
