Slightly concerned?

So yesterday I was spending time with my boyfriend. I was sat on top of him while wearing only a very thin gstring type underwear-very see through and thin, barely even covering my genitals. my boyfriend was wearing a pair of thin boxers and some thin shorts. After I moved off of my boyfriend I noticed a wet patch of pre ejaculate on shorts and I know for definite it was from him and not me. I'm worried about the pregnancy risk here. I've heard that sperm can get through clothes but I've also heard that it can't. But what if the fluid leaks through the material? Does that mean the sperm has made it through? I'm very very confused. Later that day his clothed penis tip got in very close contact with my vaginal opening (I was still wearing thin underwear tho) Please help. if the fluid has leaked through, do I then have a risk of pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your pregnancy risk concern.

Pre ejaculate fluid is the liquid that leaks out of the penis during sexual arousal but before ejaculation. Pre-ejaculate is not semen and does not contain sperm. But, it can pick up sperm remaining in his urethra from a previous ejaculation. But once he urinates, any remaining sperm is flushed out. In itself, no high risk of pregnancy with contact only with pre ejaculate fluid.

Sperm cannot pass through clothing. You were not at risk because your boyfriend was wearing boxers and shorts.

No risk for pregnancy with the second sexual activity.

Hope this helps,
