Possible pregnancy, or just PMS?

Hello everyone I have a slight problem, I think. I have never had sex before, although I do have oral sex occasionally. For the past week and a half I have been experiencing on and off cramping in my pelvic area, bloating, fatigue, headaches, and have been moody. All symptoms of PMS, right? I normally don't experience these symptoms so early from my period (my last period was around May 17th, I think. My periods are never regular seeing as how I am only 17). I just find it weird that this is happening especially the cramps before my period - I don't recall me ever experiencing those. Once again, I have never had sex, but could it be possible that I could be pregnant from oral? His penis was never near my vagina and he never came anywhere near it,but I am simply just curious as this has never happened to me before. Thank you. :)

I forgot to add that my breasts have also been sore and I have had occasional nausea. Is there any chance I could be pregnant even though I am a virgin and have made no genital-to-genital contact?

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question. Our other "Anon" poster is correct, there is definitely no chance of pregnancy if there was no intercourse or sperm anywhere near your vagina. In order for pregnancy to occur one of those must happen, oral sex will not get you pregnant.
It sounds like you may have PMS, if it persists, I would go to the doctor just to ensure that everything is al right.

All the best,

Well I mean.. it just sort of scares me because I have read that it is possible to get pregnant while not having sex. And I have never had some of these symptoms before my period for so long (cramping, nausea). I just want to make sure!

Hi, you are not pregnant. The sperm needs to enter through the vagina for a chance of pregnancy
