Can you get pregnant from dry sex?

(Please don't laugh at me or make fun of me, I'm wicked scared)

So on Septemeber 9th, my boyfriend and i were fooling around and I sucked him off through his shorts. Then he started rubbing against me with clothes on. He had on shorts and I had on shorts, a pad (I just started my period that day) and a blanket for extra protection. He wasn't really near my down there area a whole lot mostly on my legs, but he did ejaculate, but a very small amount (he said he thought it might have been from when I was sucking him). I am on birth control and at the time I was not taking the sugar pills, if that makes a difference. I checked and my pants were as clean as it could be.

Anyways, lately I've been feeling kinda bloated and I've been having a upset stomach, also I've been having sharp pains in my lower abdomen. I have been finding white discharge on my underwear too and my lower back has been hurting. I am dignoased with anxiety and I have to take pills for ADD, but I am kinda more nervous than I have ever been.

Could I get pregnant if his shorts were wet? Should I take a pregnancy test? What's going on with my stomach??

Please no sarcastic or mean comments, please. Thank you

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question.

If you are on birth control pills and taking it correctly, you should be just fine, despite any other factors (wet shorts, white discharge, pain in abdomen).

When is your menstrual cycle due? Is it somewhat soon?

The symptoms you describe (white discharge, bloating, pain in abdomen) are common with pre menstrual and/or menstrual.

I hope this helps.
Be well,
