Period late and worried ?

Is it possible to get pregnant if my boyfriend very quickly touches his boxers which may have had a little tiny bit of precum underneath, and then fingered me a few minutes later, bearing in mind he wiped his fingers on his trousers before he fingered me? He doesnt remember it being wet, or even touching it, but I'm still worried, and it's stressing me out. I'm now four days late for my period and am getting worried, I don't know what to do, please help? Thank you very much :)

I am not sure what you are asking. What is, "I had dry" mean?

When did you have your last period?
When are/were you expecting your current period?

Did you have unprotected sex after your last menstrual period?

If your current period has not begun, and you are worried about pregnancy, you can take a home pregnancy test. Let us know if you are worried about anything else.

No, it is not likely that you could become pregnant in this way. You can always take a home pregnancy test after you've missed your period if you are worried ( and, if you have had any other sexual encounters that you are worried about).

Does this help?

Thank you very much Alison, I also forgot to mention that after this happened I had a period, my last period, and it was perfectly normal.

I am confused, then. Why would you be worried about pregnancy if you have had a period? Menstruation means you are not pregnant.

Are you thinking about becoming more sexually active, and having sex in the future? It is important to plan and think about what birth control options you have, as well as how to protect yourself and your partner against STDs. We are happy to talk with you about your safer sex options!

Well at first I thought I wast pregnant! By surfing the Internet I found some stories of people "claiming"
to have a period whilst pregnant, which got me worried. I started my period this morning, and feel relieved. Thankyou for settling my mind about this! many thanks :)

So glad you got your period. I know how much of a relief that is to you. Take care, and don't hestitate to come back if you have questions in the future, OK?
