Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with EmpowHER! If you and your boyfriend were dry humping, there is no way you are pregnant as sperm can not swim through clothes. 

When sperm is in open air, it dries up and can no longer get someone pregnant. Especially if you waited 40 minutes to wash your hands, the sperm had dried up by then. 

Sometimes periods can be a day or more late depending on your own personal schedule. If you plan to have sex and do not have any pregnancy plans, it is important to get on birth control and use protection.

I hope this helped and please let me know if you have further questions!
