Is it possible to be pregnant?

So, me and my boyfriend were masturbating. He touched me first, then I touched him, and he ejaculated. The sperm fell on his belly and I got none on my hands, neither did him. We talked about this for like 1 min, and he cleaned himself with baby wipes, first on the belly, then he took another baby wipe and cleaned his hands. I wiped my hands too, even tho I had no sperm in my hands. Thas cleaning thing must have taken like 3/4 min. After that, he rubbed my clit again, but didn't insert any finger on my vagina. I was on my fertile period, and I believe it was the beginning of it, since I suspect that my ovulation came 4/5 days after that. 2 days after that happened, I started to feel some noises in my belly, something like stomach gases. They stood till today. 4 days after that, my right breast grew a lot and the nipple of it swelled. The left breast sticks the same way as it was before. The right one isn't 24/7 swelled, but it still does it sometimes. It is still bigger than the left one. Besides, 5 days after what happened, I felt that my belly had swelled, till today. My mucus has changed after the ovulation, and it is doughy again, just like before the fertile period. I think it's convenient to say I've been really stressed with all this. I'm afraid that I could've get pregnant. Is there a possibility? Am I pregnant?
(I'm sorry for my last question, I did it wrongly).

Hello juliarezende,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about possibly having become pregnant.

No. There was no risk because your boyfriend removed any ejaculat4ed semen with baby wipes.

All the symptoms you describe are either pre-menstrual such as changes in your breast and cervical mucus, or anxiety related such as bloating and increased gas.

Hi, Maryann,

Thank you for your fast answer, firstly. So, it's been 8 days till that all happened. Since 3 days ago, I've been feeling some twinges, in many different places in my belly. Is it something to worry about? Besides, my menstruation is really irregular, but I should wait for it without any concern, right? If it takes too much to come, do you recommend that I should take a pregnancy test?

Hi juliarezende,

No. I don't think these twinges are anything to worry about. If you were thinking the twinges were a sign of pregnancy, they are not.
Even if you become pregnant, which I do not think happened, three days after is far too early for any signs or changes.

I think you can wait for your period to start without any concern.

juliarezende, since you have a history of irregular menstrual cycles and are sexually active, consider talking with a gynecologist about oral contraceptives, which can help regulate your cycle and prevent an unwanted pregnancy.

Hello, Maryann,

I don't know if you remember my story. But it's been 15 days till the day that "all happened". I feel nothing weird, at all, but I've still been feeling a swollen belly yet. My breasts are still swollen, but I've been noticing something different: some veins are getting more visible, and one of them, in the right breast, is going on its way to the middle (to the nipple, but it stops on the darker place). Is that possibly pre-menstrual symptoms? (I'm sorry for bothering you again with this, but I'm really worried...)

Hi juliiarezende,

If you re-read my reply to your first post, you will remember that I said here was no risk of becoming pregnant.

I really think all these symptoms are premenstrual. You must stop angsting over this because stress will only cause changes in your already irregular menstrual cycle.

Whenever the body is under excessive/constant stress, it will secrete stress hormones – cortisol and adrenaline. The adrenaline hormone will give you more energy, while the cortisol will increase brain function and stop or slow down the non-essential functions of the body. Some of these functions include the digestive process and cellular growth. Another factor would be to suppress the reproductive system.

Now, if your body is producing too much cortisol this activity will be identified by the areas of your brain which monitors the reproductive functions

Cortisol can send signals for the brain to halt or stop the release of reproductive hormones progesterone and estrogen. These hormones are needed to stimulate your menstrual cycle. Your period cannot occur without them.

Stress can have many effects which range from early bleeding before period to a reduction in blood flow.

Yes, I remember that. But these apparently different things on my body don't let me relax... So, cortisol may be the cause for the visible veins, right? I'll try, one more time, to stay calm, as harder as it seems... Thank you for helping me on this, again...

Thank you so much for your answers!! I really appreciate that. I'll try to remain calm now, since I've never been that stressed... These symptoms are "killing" my head...
About the irregular period, I'll consider to do what you recommended.
Thanks again!
