ask: Is it possible and why are my periods irregular?

Hey, I guess I have two questions really.
My first one is can you get pregnant from dry sex?
It sounds so stupid but it really has been bothering me.
Can sperm actually swim through clothes?! XD

My second question is this. My periods are irregular and I don't know why. I had scarlet fever in august/early September time but I don't know if that could still affect it as its now December. I had my period for august but not for September and I had it in October/very early November but not properly for November.

My periods have always been irregular and I was wondering if all this is something to be concerned about?
Thank you so much in advance!!!! :D

Hi Aconcernedworrier,

Thanks for your post. 

No, you cannot get pregnant through dry humping. There is no way that sperm can permeate through your clothes.

As far as your second question, sometimes when you are ill it can affect your period. However, if you were sick in august and you had your period after that then your december period isn't late due to your scarlet fever. Since you have irregular periods, this is likely the reason why it is late. 

Have you ever been to your doctor for your irregular periods? 

Best,

Rosa

Definitely not through clothes? Good ;D
I've never been to the doctors. I'm only 15 so I thought they'd sort themselves but it seems they haven't yet.
I have been quite stressed recently with various exams but I don't know if that'd impact it at all?
Also, I've noticed that sometimes when I'm meant to be on my period I have symptoms like stomach cramps and stuff but I just dont bleed?
Thank you so much for your reply!
