Welcome to e health forum.

The risk of pregnancy due to contact with pre-ejaculatory fluid is very unlikely.


Taking emergency contraceptive pills should be only in case, when you are supposed to be in the unsafe or ovulatory phase of the cycle. Taking the pill outside of this period does not provide any use, but may cause side effects.

Some common side effects of emergency contraception include menstrual irregularities including delayed or missed periods, reduced or increased menstrual flow, change in pattern of cycles, etc

If you are sexually active on a regular basis, it would be recommended that you consult your doctor and seek a proper birth control to protect yourself against pregnancy in the future. Depending on emergency post coital pills as primary contraceptive is not recommended.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. periods get delayed specially after a breakthrough bleed. Count your days from breakthrough bleed and consider that a day one of cycle unless you get the next period. For peace of mind you can always have a pregnancy test, that will come negative.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
