ask: Pre-ejaculate and pregnancy,

I'm not Reaaaalllly worried about this, but I just can't get it out of my mind, a few weeks ago my boyfriend and I had outercourse/dry jumping. We were only in our underwear, I was pretty wet and he had a few spots of pre-ejaculation/precum on his underwear. So my questios are, is there in any way possible or chance that it could get through my underwear or both enough To get in and get me pregnant? Also he poked his underwear covered penis around my underwear covered vagina, could that also be bad? Does it matter the thickness or thinness of the underwear at all? I'm not very worried because ive talked to my mom about this and she said that ejaculate only live outside of the body for a couple of seconds/minutes because it's not the right temperature for them to be living in because they need a warm environment, the vagina. She also said that precum or even sperm cannot get through underwear and that it's not very strong at all, is she right about all of this?

I have a similar question - I had also had dry/outer course with someone except for once when he pulled my panties down a little but did not insert his penis but rubbed it. My periods were supposed to happen on Feb 22nd but I have had bleeding yesterday during shower when bits of lining and blood was falling off during shower and when I touch the labia/vagina area with tissue, it has blood on it but there is no leaking. The guy was also careful and made sure i was wearing my panties during the dry sex and when he came, it was cos of a hand-job and he went to the bathroom. I have been having anxiety about if I am pregnant or not due to the pre-ejaculation. Since I am bleeding, is it worth taking a pregnancy test? or am I stressing for no reason

Hi Emily B,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Yes, that  is correct. Sperm can not swim through clothes.  

Best,

Daisy
