Me and my Boyfriend were "dry humping", he had swim trunks on and i had udnerwear and girl boxers on. His penis never got really close to my area, but my period is late and im worried i could be pregnant.

Dry humping is actually a form of "safer sex", as there is no risk for pregnancy and very little (if any) for spreading sexually transmitted infections and diseases (STIs, STDs). (Some STDs are spread by skin-to-skin contact, that is why there is some risk).

What is more important: you are 15 and are missing periods due to excessive exercising, it is very, very important to talk with your doctor, as there can be other medical conditions as well; amenorrhea (loss of a period) can be just one symptom. Can you tell us what your height and weight are? When was your last menstrual period? What age did you begin getting periods?

It is EXTREMELY rare to get pregnant from Dry Humping alone.Especially in your case with so much clothing seperating the two.My main question is have you had sex before?If recently,then there is a chance you could be pregnant.Many things could make your period come late.Causes of missed or irregular periods without being pregnant include:1.Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems.2.Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia.3.Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes.4.Emotional stress.5.Illness.6.Travel. 7.Medicines such as birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods or no periods at all.If you've skipped a period, try to relax. Restoring your life to emotional and physical balance can help. Many women miss periods now and then. Unless you are pregnant, chances are your cycle will return to normal next month.

No, i have never had sex before. Im only 15 and trust me thats the last time I ever think about getting close.
Thank you so much for the reason of a missed period, Lately i've been in 3 sports a day soccer volleyball and basketball. After those sports i also run on my own everyday just a light 2 mile jog. Thank you, thank you. You have just lifted a huge weight off my shoulders, and i probably over racted seeing as im only 3 days late and stil waiting. (: thank you!
