Q: 

Can I get Pregnant by dry humping?

My boyfriend and I had sort of a dry sex but I had panties on and he had his boxers on. I got wet and I seen a spot on his boxers. Then, I know it's stupid, he took off his boxers while I still had my panties on and he continued grinding but his penis was dry because we wiped it off. Could I get pregnant?
My periods are infrequent sometimes and I still didn't get my period last one was sept.13 and it's October 29th... I took pregnancy tests twice - once in Oct.11 and the other Oct.24 still both negative. I'm stressing a lot and freaking out. I don't know what to do.

Is pregnancy possible? My breasts hurt but I exercise like push ups and such. I use the restroom a lot but I drink lots of water. But stress - I stress a lot. Could that be the reason? I don't have any type of discharge coming out though.
Thank you for your time.

Hi Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER!

For pregnancy to occur, actual sexual intercourse must happen. Acts like dry humping and dry sex cannot cause a pregnancy. With dry humping, there is no exchange of bodily fluids which would cause pregnancy.

That's good you took a pregnancy test because that's really the only way to know if you are pregnant or not. Both were negative, and the fact that you engaged in dry sex should help ease fears that you are not pregnant. Sometimes high stress can affect our menstrual cycles and delay our periods. Try some anti-stress techniques like deep breathing and yoga

Also, read this great resource on EmpowHER that talks about what can and can't get you pregnant: http://www.empowher.com/community/share/outercourse-dry-humping-dry-sex-...

Hope this helps!

Best,
Erin
