pregnant possible without penetration?

Hello, my last period was Jan 8th (first day) and on jan 18, my BF and I were in the shower and engaged in some genital rubbing as well as some mutual ejaculation; where he ejaculated downward underneath me (I was standing on my toes leaning on him) no semen got on me then, however I am worried perhaps when we were rubbing that between standing under the shower and pre-ejac it may have "dripped down" into my entrance. It is now February 18th and I have no period but a swollen stomach and very sore boobs. Is it actually possible that I be pregnant from no penetration? I know you can't give me definitive answer-put hearing opinions helps (I'm not a teen)

If you weren't penetrated, then your menstual cycle can be absent for other reasons than pregnancy. Make an appt to get examined by your physician.

Thank you for replying. But my period still hasn't come and I've developed this sudden stomach in the last two weeks when I usually have a flat stomach (I weigh 110). It is hard to suck in and now my nipples are itchy. I know I would only be 3-4 weeks pregnant but how can I have all these symptoms? My period is NO where to be found! We didn't even have penetrative sex!

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question.

It is very unlikely that you have become pregnant as a result of the activity described. Your symptoms are most likely your menstrual cycle on the way. The best way to ease your mind is to take a pregnancy test.

I hope this helps.
Be well,

Thank you for replying. I wish my cycle would come however it is no where in site! I am a 109 pound woman with a usually flat flat stomach. In the last week it has become very round and hard to suck in. My nipples are now itchy too. I know I would be 3-4 weeks pregnant but how can I have all these symptoms already?!
