I have a 30-35 day cycle ...me and my boyfriend were dry humping around the 14th day...there was absolutely no penetration he had his boxers on and i had my underwear and a skirt made up of very thin material...we dry humped for quite a lot of time and toward the end i noticed some wetness on his boxers which might have even touched my bare thigh and skirt sometimes ...im really concerned what are the chances of getting pregnant by this? Should i take an ipill it isnt 72hrs yet

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You cannot become pregnant from this scenario for several reasons. Pregnancy can only occur if he ejaculates into your vagina during penetration. Sperm cannot travel through fabric. When sexually aroused, the vagina produces its own lubrication.
Since you took emergency contraception you will probably experience these following side effects: nausea, tender breasts, cramping and bleeding a few days later. The side effects can mirror pregnancy symptoms but does not mean that you are pregnant. EC can also disrupt your next period.
I encores you to read the article below that talks more about outercourse and pregnancy.
