Me and my boyfriend were watching a movie and he pulled me on top of him and started dry humping me, this isn't unusual but this time he ejaculated and pulled me down into it, like i couldn't move, he had on boxers and gym shorts and i had on cotton panties and yoga shorts, im not sure if he soaked through his shorts onto me or what because my shorts felt damp down there but i couldn't tell if it was sweat from being hot or my own wetness or him, he said theres nothign to worry about because of the clothes but i'm so scared, my period is due in one week and i've just been freaking out all night, can someone please help me, i know it might sound stupid but i really have no idea, my school didnt teach us anything about this so im really asking here. Can i get pregnant from this? like what are my chances? I'm crying because I'm so scared right now

No you cannot get pregnant this way.

If there was no body contact, meaning skin to skin or bodily fluid contact.  Sperm can not swim through clothes.  Semen outside the body, will dry up very quick and sperm would die. In order for sperm to live and be able to swim up the vaginal walls, there has to be intercourse.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  There is no need to continue worrying about it. If either one of you were wearing clothes, you can not get pregnant from dry humping.  Sperm can not swim through clothes.

Even if his semen soaked through his shorts a little and he pulled me into him really hard?
