Mid-cycle symptoms: Am i pregnant?

My boyfriend and I were engaging in heavy petting a week ago. We did not have sex but his penis with pre-cum rubbed past my vagina briefly. I believe it's now mid-cycle through my menstrual cycle and i'm experiencing breast soreness, and my nipples hurt unusually when applied pressure onto. Yesterday, i had a sharp pain lasting for a few minutes on the right side of my abdomen. Could this be a sign of ovulation or am I really pregnant? I'm still a teenager, I don't really want this to happen. Please advice and thank you!

Hi there Anon,

It's impossible to know whether his pre-cum contained any sperm or not, that's why it's so important to engage in safe sex (or sexual activities) or not engage in them at all.

If your boyfriend merely rubbed his penis on your vagina, chances are you're probably not pregnant. However, it's still possible to conceive if there was even 1 sperm in his pre-cum so we can't completely disregard the possibility. If it was one week ago, it is way too soon to feel pregnancy symptoms--what you may be feeling is ovulation, especially since you mentioned that you are now mid-cycle. And if that is the case, then you weren't ovulating last week.

The best thing to do now is not to engage in any more sexual activities that can cause another scare and wait until your next period comes. If it is late, please take a pregnancy test and try not to stress out over this too much because stress can delay your period.

Good Luck,

Oh and i would like to add on that he did not ejaculate. The last time he did was at least 8hours ago and he probably urinated more than 3 times in between so the chance of sperms being in the pre-cum is quite small. I'm still worried, though.
