Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were during your fertile days at the time of your sexual contact, and if pre-cum or semen has come in contact with your vagina, chances of pregnancy is possible. If you are worried for pregnancy, you can consider taking emergency contraceptive within 24-48 hours of the unprotected sexual contact to prevent pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact and avoid repeat use of ECP.
Take care.
