Hi Kesisha lee

Thanks for your post!

You cannot get pregnant this way. Your period is likely just late. In order to get pregnant, there must be sperm to vaginal contact. In other words - sexual intercourse or ejaculation right at the vaginal opening (this risk is much lower than intercourse, obviously).

It does not sound like you are ready for sex at all so until you are, read all about sex ed in our great sex ed section here: http://www.empowher.com/sexual-health-101

Make sure you always have a condom with you and always use it, not matter what the guy says (he has no diseases/he knows how not to get your pregnant - guys have a million ways of trying to have sex without a condom) because pregnancy and disease are a huge risk.

Sex in a relationship is a wonderful thing and you need to respect your body and treat her right! Only have sex when you are read and take your time. Read a lot from reputable sources, don't listen to others accounts of gossip or "my friend's cousin's neighbor..." stories!

I'm glad you are asking questions and good luck to you!

Susan
