Can I get pregnant from genital rubbing with a condom?

A few nights ago, my boyfriend and I engaged in genital to genital rubbing. I put a condom on him before we had any genital to genital contact. Also, he did not ejaculate and we only rubbed for a few minutes.
Afterwards, he fingered me and gave me oral sex.
My question is, what is my possibility of getting pregnant from this? We did use a condom and he did not ejaculate. Also, I was on day 8 of my cycle.
I'm guessing my pregnancy risk is probably very low since we did use protection, however, I tend to be a worrier and this has been on my mind a lot. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Thanks.

One day ago my partner wore a condom and rubbed against my vagina. There was no penetration. He ejaculated in the condom. There was no tearing of the condom. I washed myself after the act. It was the 14th day of my cycle. Is their any chance I m pregnant? Should I take an emergency contraceptive?

Hi Anonymous,

In order for someone to get pregnant, you need penetration and ejaculation. The purpose of the condom is to protect you from pregnancy and STDs. So, if you were rubbing with a condom and there was no ejaculation then there is no chance of pregnancy.


Good Luck,
