our first time, unprotected and didn't penetrate but worried

User Profile
i had unprotected sex with my gf but she is still virgin and didn't penetrated her but somehow i am worried as i ejaculated in my shorts(near her vagina) while she was on top of me. So we were nt sure that whether she shall take unwanted 72 or not. But to be on safe side she took it on 25th evening, we had sex on 23rd noon. So was it too late, are there any complications. Please please explain as this was our very first time and both of us are scared.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If pre-cum or semen has not come in direct contact (genital contact or fingering) with vagina and if she was not around her fertile days, chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. There are no studies to prove that sperms can swim through fabrics (unless it is thin and lightly woven and there is presence of ample vaginal wetness). For pregnancy to result, pre-cum or semen should come in direct contact with vagina during her fertile days/ovulation time. The ECP taken should help in preventing pregnancy if she has taken it within 48 hours of unprotected intercourse (provided you were not sexually active after she has taken ECP). The bleeding she experienced within 7-10 days of taking the emergency contraception could be the withdrawal bleeding (that could indicate that the pill has worked). Since it contains high dosages of hormones, it can cause period pattern changes and new symptoms. Wait and watch for her next periods that may 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, and she should avoid repeat use of ECP.
Take care.
