Can you get pregnant by rubbing of the clitoris?

Hi, I'm pretty young, & of course, I'm terrified of pregnancy. I was wondering if you can get pregnant by a guy rubbing the clitoris with clean hands? I've read about fingering, and me & my bf haven't done that. Saying that fingering cant cause pregnancy & if there was sperm on the hands, pregnancy was low. Anyways, I've been mostly freaking out because my stomach seems bigger and rounder...everyone says my stomach is the same but to me it seems like a pregnant belly, maybe its me being paranoid? (btw, I've NEVER had sex.) the last time I've messed around with my bf when he was uhm..rubbing was 2 months ago, but my period was super late due to stress. but, I got iton the 14th of last month & it was 7 days long. Well my period is supposed to be coming. But,I'm also experiencing white discharge thats the color of milk (eww i'm sorry for saying that.) I'm also getting slight cramps ish. I also want to say that I'm 5'6 and weigh 147 pounds, so I've got belly fat. But recently, my stomach seems more..sucked in? not as much belly fat to grab when I used to be able to grab. I have no idea if this is me being paranoid..but I just need an opinion. could I be pregnant? ty for reading!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Pregnancy results when you have unprotected vaginal intercourse five days before you ovulate or on the day you ovulate.

From what you have shared, you were not at risk for becoming pregnant.

Oh okay thank you! Also, does fingering cause a pregnancy risk? If the fingers are clean? & is the only way for pregnancy to occur is through vaginal intercourse (unprotected)

Hello Anonymous,

Fingering with clean fingers poses no pregnancy risk.

Unprotected vaginal intercourse during ovulation is the way you become pregnant.

I understand this is pretty old, but I was wondering if there is possibility of pregnancy when rubbing the clitoris while there is semen on the fingers?

Unless sperm got near the vaginal opening, then pregnancy is not possible.
