A worried 16 year old

I'm a 16 year old girl in a longterm relationship. My boyfriend were being very silly and fooling around, his penis touched my vagina and it had precum on it. I went to get the emergency contraceptive on the third day as I was very worried. It came to when my period was due and it didn't come. I woke up twice during the 5 days you can be late with the pill crying and hot because I've been so stressed :/ I'm now 8 days late and worried sick I could be pregnant, I took a Home Pregnancy Test and it came back negative, help?

Editor's Comment

There is a very low risk of getting pregnant from precum on the outside of the vagina but is possible. It is more likely that your anxiety has made your period late. You should do a pregnancy test 2 weeks after the accident to check, but in the mean time try not to worry about it. If you took the emergency contraceptive pill within 72 hours of the accident this will also reduce the chance of pregnancy, but it can also delay your period from coming when you expected it. If you would like more advice on contracetion please contact the national helpline, or go to your local contracetive and sexual health clinic.
