Chances of me getting pregnant this way? Should I worry?

I am a virgin, and the other day me and my boyfriend got a little into the moment and he kind of rubbed his penis near my vagina. It was on the upper part my vagina, not the lower part (close to the rear end) if that matters at all. Neither of us had clothes on, and I got really scared after, so I took the Plan B pill 14 hours after this happened, which was the soonest that I could do it. I'm usually have irregular periods so I'm never too sure when to expect mine. I was thinking of taking a pregnancy test, just in case, two weeks from now to be on the safe side. I told my friend about this and she said she thinks I'm overreacting a bit. What should I do? What are the chances of me getting pregnant after all this? I would appreciate honest answers please, I'm very nervous now

Ok, so after finishing my period (it lasted about 4 days, heavy), I now feel like i have a bit of a "pouch" right where my bladder is. I don't know if it's just me being nervous at this point, but I don't think its ever been like that before. At least i don't think. After all of this, considering I didn't have intercourse to begin with but rubbed genitals together, and took a Plan B pill 14 hours after, got my heavy "period" a week early and now feel like I have a "pouch" on my bladder, could I be pregnant? Or am I just nervous? Should I take a home pregnancy test? This situation happened on the 10th of December.

Hi jessica_1675,
Having a period means you're not pregnant, so no pregnancy test is needed. Whatever pouch may just be bloating left over from your period, water weight, or something similar.

So, as long as I got my period and CONTINUE getting my period, it would be impossible for me to be pregnant? Im sorry for asking so many questions, I just want to clarify and make sure I understand all of this before i go off assuming that I can't be pregnant.

The reason I'm iffy about the period I got after taking the Plan B pill, was because I've heard of "implantation bleeding" and I've heard that Plan B induces periods..and mine was a week early.

I've also heard of women being pregnant and still having their period. Is this possible?

If you have your period, or had your period this month after your rubbing incident-- you are not pregnant. :)

Implantation bleeding does not occur to everyone nor is it anything like a period. It is a very faint pink tinge in your underwear or toilet paper, not bright red blood like you get when you have a period. There are few cases of women who bleed while being pregnant, but it really isn't a true period and I wouldn't classify you under this possibility.

Plan B can and most likely will cause your period to come early but if you are already pregnant, it will do nothing. Try not to stress out about it, there was no actual penetration AND you have your period. Best Wishes!

Thank you so much for the reply. I remembered the other day, that my boyfriend actually did happen to get his penis near my clitorous when we did this. Like i said I've taken the Plan B pill (14 hours after this). I got my period about 3 days ago (about a week early) and it is actually heavy, like a normal period and not just spotting. I'm still on it. Can this mean I have a chance of being pregnant? Or does this sound like I'm in the clear? And should I take a home pregnancy test once this period is over?

Bleeding, especially heavy bleeding like you say you are having, indicates you are not pregnant. So "in the clear". You may want to work extra diligently to make sure you don't put yourself at further risk for pregnancy and having to take the plan B pill. If you intend to continue to be sexually active, it may be time to schedule an appointment with your doctor (gynecologist, or family doctor) to go over birth control methods and find one that's right for you. Or have your partner pitch in by picking up some condoms. This time can be fun for both of you if you take precautions and avoid unneeded stress.

So, after taking the plan b pill, should i still take a home pregnancy test even though those aren't accurate? Or should I be ok and not have to take one?

Hi Jessica_1675,
The activity you and your boyfriend did was minimally risky. You should be OK with taking the plan B. Be forewarned that taking plan B can mess up your cycle. Please read the Emergency Contraception Update 2010 article so you will be prepared for what to expect and won't be unnecessarily concerned. If you miss your next period or it's late when you think it should be coming, you can take a pregnancy test then. Most pregnancy tests are accurate if taken after a missed period.
Hope that clears up some confusion you were having.
