Q: 

Pregnancy worries WITHOUT intercourse?

I can't believe I'm asking this but I'm starting to freak out a little bit.
A few days after my period ended, my boyfriend and I were "messing around." He put his bare penis up to my bare vagina and started rubbing before I told him to stop and put on a condom. (I'm not on any other form of birth control right now.) No ejaculation and no penetration, just possible precm on my vagina.
I didn't think anything of it at the time, but now my period is a few days late - I've had some weird light brown spotting with period-esque cramps, but no period. My breasts are tender and look a little bigger to me, and my skin has absolutely exploded with acne (although that is not unusual for me). I'm kind of freaking out.

I am absolutely exhausted, but to be fair, I have been sleeping an average of four hours a night and have a whole lot of stress in my life right now. We haven't even had sex yet because I am undergoing treatment for vaginsmus - penetration and intercourse is too painful for me, something I'm working on with physical therapy.

I took a sensitive early test the day my period should have come, and it was negative, but still no period. A pregnancy would be absolutely devastating, especially without intercourse - I'm not even sure my boyfriend would believe me. :(

I should mention that I recently stopped taking the Pill because it was making me super depressed and physically ill. I was told to expect some cycle weirdness after stopping, but I'd gone through two full cycles and my period seemed perfectly normal.
Am I making myself nuts or is there a real risk here?

Thanks very much for your help.

I have just preformed sexual activities with my boyfriend but there was no penetration. However I am now 6 days late but am cramping and would like to know do I have reason for concern. My periods are irregular and I do a lot of things that may prolong my period such as working out a lot.

So my boyfriend and I are virgins. We were showering together but I was wearing bikini bottoms because we didn't want his penis to touch near my vagina. I gave him a handjob in the shower, I was standing next to him but facing him. My area was toward his hip if that makes sense. His penis was pointed away from me. His hand was in my bottoms but it had not touched his penis. Is there any chance that semen could have gotten into my bikini bottoms and gone into my vagina? Also this was the day after my period ended which I think means it's a lesser chance of pregnancy. We just get worried about the little things so we just need reassurance! Thank you!

Hello Anon

There is no risk unless there was semen deposited inside (or, more rarely, the opening of) the vagina.

Hi, I really need help. 10 days before, right after my period, me and my boyfriend were making out. I gave him a handjob and he ejaculated. About 30 mins later we started making out again. He was on top, then he took off his pants. He just had boxer on him but I was fully dressed. Then he took off his boxer too, my short was half open, he started rubbing his penis. I stopped him when I realised he was naked. He didn't ejaculated nor I felt wetness so I believe there was no pre-ejaculation. But right now I have nausea, I am cold and I have to go to the bathroom frequently. I took two pregnancy tests and they were both negative. I went to the doctor today about bathroom situation, he said I have infection but there's no pain when I pee. And my period is expected next week. I can't be pregnant, can I? This situation makes me really uncomfortable and I can't stop worrying. Can someone please tell me is there a possibility? Or am I just too anxious?

I haven't had any vagina and penis intercourse with my boyfriend but I have done other things: dry humping and oral intercourse. I think I'm not pregnant but It's been two months since my last period. I have been fatigued, hungry, and I have been having white discharge since my last period; which was in May. I don't know if I should be more seriously worried?

Could someone help me please? Me and my boyfriend rubbed each other's genitals against each other on the third of July. What are the chances I may have gotten pregnant through pre cum on my entrance? I was supposed to get my period a few days ago

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Pre-ejaculate itself does not contain any sperm. Sperm may be inside the urethra if a man ejaculated recently and did not urinate since. If he urinated since he last ejaculated, there is no sperm at all. Pregnancy is very uncommon from pre-ejaculate and the urethra would have to contain sperm at the same time. A woman would also have to be ovulating and engage in unprotected intercourse with ejaculation.

Please help me, I am unsure whether there is chance for me to be pregnant or not. I don't believe so but I would like confirmation. My boyfriend and I were about to have sex for the first time and he put a condom on and rubbed his penis on the outside of my vagina. The last time he had ejaculated previous to this was 4 days before and he has obviously used the bathroom many times since. We did not go through with sex and there was no penatration. I went to the bathroom right after and urinated. I would just like to hear from someone soon please! I'm a little worried and I would like to know for sure.
