Ok here is the situation:
- my boyfriend and I were rubbing our genitals together. He was in underwear. I was NOT in underwear. ( so 1 layer of clothing ). I am not sure he ejaculated, it was only for about 10 minutes or so.
Now I am experiencing ..
- tender breasts
- fatigue
- weight gain
- headaches
- sharp stomach pains
Could I be pregnant if he did ejaculate? I have been reading multiple sources and they all say different things. Thank you

Thank you so much. Now, what would happen if his underwear slipped? I know they didn't, but I'm a worry wart . If it was just our bare genitals rubbing together with no ejaculation or penetration, could I become pregnant that way? I keep having the symptoms and my period is due in like 5 days. :/

I'm freaking out. I had sex at the end of August. I was not on birth control but we did use a condom. I was on the pill after but i have not taken them regularly. I took a test in early September and toward the end and it was negative. I've had periods as scheduled when I have taken the pills like I should. In December I have bwwn terrible about taking them. I have not had a period. I'm having terrible cramps and kind of tender breasts and a little nauseous. I guess my question is could I be pregnant but my birth control was triggering periods? They were heavy.

The short answer is no. You cannot be pregnant for several reasons.
First of all, when you had sex, you were not only taking birth control pills which prevents ovulation, but you also used a condom. If there is no egg to fertilize and no sperm to fertilize it, no pregnancy can occur.
Regular periods, whether on pills or not is also a sure sign you are not pregnant.
You need to trust your birth control method and also the negative pregnancy test.
Since you are still worried about pregnancy after all the evidence against it, perhaps you are not ready for sex.
I suggest you wait till you're emotionally ready to avoid stress.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
It is impossible for sperm to pass through fabric no matter how thin. So if your boyfriend did ejaculate the sperm could not have passed through his underwear.
Keep in mind that pregnancy is not the only possible cause for your symptoms.
In the future I suggest that you avoid sexual activity that causes you to worry about pregnancy even when you haven't had intercourse.
