Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the chances of pregnancy after the messy night that you have described. You have also made a mention that you have not had menarche as yet.
A girl can become pregnant before her first period because her first period comes about two weeks after she releases her first egg. It is possible for a girl to become pregnant with her very first release of an egg, so long as there are sperm present when that event happens. The problem is that you don't know when that first release will take place.
A man's sperm can survive up to six days inside a woman. Therefore, so long as the sperm was placed anywhere within the six days prior to a woman's egg release, she can potentially become pregnant.
The fluid that drips out of penis prior to orgasm (what is called in slang "pre-cum") can contain some sperm. That fluid placed in or near the vagina has the potential to cause pregnancy, though at a far less probability.
And the earliest you can test positive with the sensitive of tests is 7 days after ovulation if conception has taken place but it may take upto 15 days after ovulation.
You might consult your personal physician for definitive advice as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
