i am 24 years old umarried. i never had sex with anyone, i mean i am virgin. but about 2 weeks ago me and my boyfriend had just a touch with hand. he touched me outside the vagina opening. i dont remember whether there was any sperm in his hand or not. but his hand was dry. my periods were about to start in 1-2 days. But now i m 13-14 days late with my periods. I had never been so late, I had two urine pregnency tests 2 days ago in two different clinics. but both were negative,

Hi anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. It is not possible to get pregnant in the way you describe. You cannot get pregnant without penis to vagina contact. Those pregnancy tests are super sensitive to the hormones produced if you are pregnant. You are more likely just skipping your period. You may want to educate yourself about sexual intimacy so you are better prepared, and know what is sex and what will get you pregnant (and how to protect yourself from that happening when you're not ready).
For more information, please review these articles: Am I Pregnant after Dry Sex, Making Out with Clothes On?, Outercourse, Dry Humping, Dry Sex, and The Misconceptions of Sex.
Good luck, and let us know if you have more questions after thoughtfully reading the articles.

hey christine thanks for being so nice to me, i have few more questions to u,
1-can pregnency occur if there are sperms in my or his hands and that hand is then touched to my vagina?
2- if there are some sexual movements while i have my underwear on but he has not worn anything and he ejaculates, does pregnency occur in that case?
3- if ovulation has already occured and then all that sexual things happen few days before the periods, will that month's periods be affected by that?
4-does exercise or stress effects the periods if ovulation has already occured?
plz clarify these doubts, it will be so kind of u.. thanks..

Hi again,
As stated in those articles I sent. The chances of getting pregnant without actual naked penis to naked vagina contact is rare. Anytime you do have contact (penis to vagina) there is low risk, but without actual penetration and ejaculation, again, it's rare to get pregnant that way. Sperm can live only minutes outside of the body and die when in dried up ejaculate.
There technically is no "safe time" to engage in sex. Our bodies do not work like clocks, and can be unpredictable--your body can have different menstrual cycles, and could possibly ovulate on a different day. Also keep in mind that sperm can live inside your body for up to 5 days, so if there is ejaculation at the entrance of you naked vagina, you could have some risk.
It has been know that exercise and stress can affect your menstrual cycle, but not sure what changes if you have ovulated or not.
The best thing is to use protection like a condom, birth control pills, or abstain from sexual activity to avoid pregnancy and transmitting STDs.
Hope this all makes sense. Read those articles to learn more, and if you need more information, check out more articles in the pregnancy section, and reproductive system pages of EmpowHER.

Hi Anon,

There are many reasons for your period to be late-- stress, a change in eating habits, significant weight loss/weight gain, etc. Your boyfriend simply touching your vagina will not get you pregnant. At this point, taking a pregnancy test would determine whether you are pregnant or not and if you took two tests at a clinic and both were negative, then you are not pregnant-- just late.

Do you have irregular periods sometimes? This could very well be because of the added stress of thinking you may be pregnant.

Good Luck-
