Help! can I get pregnant this way!?

I am a virgin and I've never had sex in my life. I do have a boyfriend and the furthest I've gone with him is kissing. There was an incident when we were kissing and he went on top of me, but we were both wearing undergarments and jeans. I wanted to know is it possible to get pregnant this way? Can sperm swim through clothing? Btw, we were in this position for about ten minutes, and I was able to feel his erection. Also, I got my period two weeks after this incident, but it was a few days late. I was feeling queasiness with a lack of appetite and breast soreness during my period. That's uncommon of me. It's been four days since my period and I sometimes feel dizzy, have headaches, and noticed an oil production in my hair and skin. Also, I've noticed visible montgomery glands in my breast. I'm only 18 and I'm terrified to take a pregnancy test. My symptoms are those of pregnancy, but I don't understand how. Can I be pregnant? Or am I stressing out? Please help me, and thanks in advance.

Hi, Anon,

You are totally not pregnant. Don't stress about it any longer, OK? You are nervous and so you are feeling every little thing about your body and thinking it is connected to this episode, but it's not all connected.

To get pregnant, sperm MUST enter the vagina. It really cannot do so through clothing. About the only way this ever happens is when a couple is both in their underwear and the penis actually does touch the vagina during ejaculation.

Also, whenever we have a period, that means we cannot be pregnant. A period is the uterus shedding the lining that it had built up in case of pregnancy. If the uterus is shedding that lining, it cannot support a pregnancy. So even when a period is late, it's still a period and it sill means no pregnancy occurred.

So relax, OK? No more stress? And before you and your boyfriend go much further in the undressing area, consider having condoms on hand just in case, OK?
