Could I be pregnant?

On the 18th my boyfriend came over. We went a far as all our clothes off. When he tried to put his penis inside me I stopped it saying that we couldn't. We continued as we were with things as before. My period was supposed to start on the 21st and end on the 23rd. I have yet to start. He was never inside me and he never came. Could I still get pregnant?

You were right I was just late, which is unusual for me. I've discussed it with my boyfriend and though we decided to not have sex. But we will make sure we have protection just in case. Thank you so much for your help.

It's OK Maddie, I still think that you are late, and not pregnant, from what you describe. Hang in there, and do let us know what heppens, OK?

Hi, Maddiekay,

It's very unlikely, but it's possible. Here's the crucial question: Did his penis touch the outside of your vagina? Men do have a few drops of pre-ejaculate at the tip of their penises that does contain sperm. So it's possible that sperm from that fluid can enter the vagina, swim up toward the uterus and fallopian tubes, and fertilize an egg. But, like I said, it's just not that likely.

Also, since it was the 18th and you expected your period to start 3 days later, it was very late in your cycle and doubtful that you would have been ovulating that late. We usually ovulate in the middle of our cycle, about 14 days before we start our period.

Does that help? My guess is that you're just a few days late in starting your period. Have you been under a lot of stress lately? Have you started or stopped any medication or had any big changes in diet, exercise or etc? Those can all affect our cycles as well.

I made a mistake I was actually supposed to start on the 23rd. I've been stressed since that day. Many people in my family have gotten preganant very young and I'm just worried. I don't take any meds. And I've lost about ten pounds in the last few months.
