Genital rubbing, can it get me pregnant?

On exactly May 22 2011 a partner and I engaged in deep fingering and I accidentaly rubbed the tip of his phallus on my vagina. No penile penetration except by finger was involved, there was no climax, but could I possible be pregnant? My last period was on the first of May, I am a tad frightened at the prospect of being a mother at the early age of eighteen. I cannot afford a pregancy test, and my parents would disown me if I was pregnant. Is there a possibility I could be pregnant? (Not to get personal and disgusting ) my nipples are a tad sore and today I had to urinate a tad frequently. I have also had a little diarrhea. I believe my areolas are a little darker as well. Please, someone, I need help!

You can find help within yourself--- there is no possible way you can be pregnant from fingering, and arming yourself with information is your best defense against worrying.

Women's cycles are not like clock-work: they do not occur on the exact day every calendar month, and they can also change if we are excessively stressed, sick, under new medication or any other number of normal/every-day reasons. Your period may be delayed a week, and there is nothing wrong (assuming you do not have pain or other troublesome symptoms, which would not indicate a pregnancy).

This is an important time to be in tune with your body, and understand what is considered "safer sex" and "unsafe sex". You absolutely need to use condoms, as Rosa said, but please learn more about how pregnancy occurs: a man must ejaculate in order for sperm to come into contact with your vagina. If there is no sperm, there is no possible way to become pregnant.

The comment above about a "slim risk" is due to a theory that "pre-cum" (fluid on the tip of a man's penis when it becomes erect) may have a slim chance of pushing up old sperm from a previous ejaculation from that same day. Pre-cum does not contain sperm itself, so there really is no risk of pregnancy if he did not ejaculate near/on/inside your vagina.

Let us know when your period begins!

Hi Anon,

The chances of you getting pregnant like this are slim to none. However, if you're going to engage in any sexual activity you should always have a condom just in case any rubbing is to occur. Wait until your next period comes and if it is late, then usually every area has a health clinic that will do a pregnancy test for free but it doesn't sound like you're going to need it. Remember that in order to get pregnant, penetration and ejaculation must occur-- yes, there is still possibilities of pregnancy through rubbing but they are very, very rare cases.

Good Luck,

Rosa please help me I am terrified. I have been having very little discharge today that my period was due. I have not really been having any excess discharge, and my boyfriend is being less than supportive. This is the same person who wrote the question.

Please answer. Currently you are the only friend I have to ask advice.

He was not wearing a condom. Finger penetration did take place afterwards I believe, when his fingers were extracted there was some blood, so my hymen was not broken during the rubbing of genitals.
