Pregnancy Scare

I had 2-3 sexual interactions with my boyfriend during my fertile period right before ovulation and although unlikely, I have been freaking out about getting pregnant.
We used a condom, and there was never any genital to genital contact WITHOUT a condom. Slight penetration (with condom) happened only once or twice for a few seconds in those interactions and there was NEVER any ejaculation nor any pre-ejaculate (according to him).
I am more worried about the times we were rubbing outside (WITH condom) as I was EXTREMELY wet and my cervical mucus was egg-white and stretchy. There was never any ejaculation (no ejaculation since almost a week, so no old sperm as far as I know), and he claims there was also never any precm, and even if there was a drop it couldn't escape the condom (Condoms never tore or broke, and there was a second when we were rubbing and whilst I was getting up, the condom slid up slightly but never came off the tip... again, the penis was always dry.)

I am worried about getting pregnant, although no ejaculation, hardly any penetration occurred, and condom was intact, as my vaginal area was always extremely wet with the fertile fluid. Please help ease my mind? I

Thank you so much! Really eases my mind! Even though we were being very careful, I ended up analysing every little detail and possible slip. It was funny that I was worried about external rubbing against my vaginal discharge than the ACTUAL intercourse.
It is honestly just a psychological scare and I tend to panic, thinking of the worst possible cases instead of the more probable ones.

I guess I just needed a prof. opinion.

Thank you so much once again!!!!

Hi Anon!

Thank you for your post.

Condoms are 98% effective when used correctly. This combined with no real penetration and no ejaculation means pregnancy is not possible even if you were ovulating. You need to just accept the science and facts and relax because you are taking proper precautions against pregnancy. Otherwise don't engage in sexual contact if your understanding of the facts is not clear.

Is it possible to get pregnant by a drop of precum OUTSIDE while humping without penetration, when you're ovulating and completely wet?

Hi Anon

There is no reason to think any pre-ejaculate could contain sperm if your boyfriend had urinated recently. And even then, no, pregnancy would not be possible even when ovulating.
