Had terrible PMS and had my period but I'm still panicking over possible pregnancy

So it all began when my boyfriend and I were dry humping, with him wearing briefs and thin shorts while I was naked. His shorts got wet, either from his lubrication or mine. I was ovulating that time. A few days later, I had nausea, extremely sore breasts, bad abdominal cramps and lower backache, and got extremely emotional --not to mention paranoia/anxiety over this. I had my period just last week though, and it began with brown spotting and then the flow got heavier. After the period, I had spotting again and now I had dry white cervical discharge. I was expecting creamy white discharge but it skipped to watery discharge. Then my abdomen is bloating again and the headache and nausea's still there. This is heading to ovulation right? It was a bad pregnancy scare, right? I can't stand this paranoia anymore it's driving me nuts and it made me cry several times. I'm scared to death. :(

Dear Anon,

Thank you for your post.

You cannot get pregnant from this scenario. Plus, you had your period. A woman cannot get pregnant unless she has unprotected sex, no clothing, with ejaculation inside (or rarely) on the opening of her vagina. Ejaculate may wet clothing but it can't penetrate clothing and get inside you to cause pregnancy.

I got my period March 16-22 after 2 days I feel sudden bumpy in my lower abdomen, bouncy and firm. Now I'm worried because I don't know if it was my period happened last week or not. I still feel nausea in the morning.

Am I pregnant?
