Terrified. Is pregnancy possible?

On March 14th, my boyfriend and I were dry humping. I was wearing underwear and small cotton shorts, and he was wearing briefs and sweatpants. During all of this, I dont know if he pre-ejaculated. All I know is that I was wet. After a bit, he ejaculated and I had a wet spot on my shorts. I checked my underwear to check, but since I was also wet. So I couldn't tell if anything got on my underwear. My last period started March 3rd. Around the 26th or 27th, I saw little blood in my discharge. I thought my period was going to start early, but I was wrong. My actual period was supposed to start April 3rd and now I'm 4 days late for my period. For the past two days, I've been feeling nausea. I also had diarrhea and been very gassy. I'm scared if pregnancy could be possible. I'm hoping that my period is late. I read on many sites that pregnancy is possible. In my case, is pregnancy remotely possible?

Thank you for your reply, Maryann. I still didn't get my period. I'm 6 days late now. Still feeling nausea and gassy. And I still have diarrhea. I've also been feeling extremely tired and fatigued. A bit dizzy at times. Maybe it's stress, I don't know. I don't know if I'm low in iron or something. I've been stressing over if pregnancy is possible. Is a pregnancy test necessary? I'm a virgin and haven't engaged in any other sexual activity than the one I stated in my previous post. If a pregnancy test is necessary, how early can I get accurate results?

Hi Anonymous,

I said that pregnancy is not possible so there is no need to take a pregnancy test.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I do not know what other websites you visited and found that pregnancy is possible with dry humping.

It is not.

The wetness you felt was your own lubrication caused by sexual arousal.

As as been stated repeatedly, sperm cannot pass through clothing.

Please take the time to read these two articles. I think you will find them informative.
