can you get pregnant if the condom broke but there was only precum?

A few days ago, I had sex for the first time and in the second round, the condom broke. He didn’t cum though , there was only precum , but I still went to the pharmacy to get the emergency pill just in case . I asked the person working there how to take the pill and she said to break it in half , take one half and the other half in 12 hours . (She was an intern) . But what I did , I took one half of the pill and took the other pill like 5-10mins later , since people (my friends who’ve been through it)  told me that you shouldn’t break it in half . ( I took the pill 40’mins after the condom broke) The emergency pill is from “Escapelle” . I’m also worried that I am/was in my fertile days and that I took the pill too late and that I might already be pregnant.
Can you get pregnant from that ?
Thank you so much

I hope he used a new condom for the second round. Condoms should not break unless they are past their use-by date, have been improperly stored, or are used with the wrong lubricant.

The morning after pill offers pretty good protection, though it can mess with your next period. It does not have to be broken like that.

Please download a period tracking app so you have a good idea if you are in the fertile window. Sex i the week or ten days before your next period is much less likely to result in pregnancy.

yes he used a new condom for the second round. Is the pill less effective because I broke it in half ? I’m really scared I might already be pregnant :/
And thank you so much for your response :))
Also I had sex 9 days before my period is supposed to start

Breaking the pill like that will not affect the outcome. It should work as planned. Try to focus on something else and quit worrying so much.
