Pre ejaculate: pregnancy?

Hi I'm 18 years old. I'm already 2 weeks late today. I don't know if this is normal. I'm so worried about being pregnant without any penetration and I'm a virgin. My boyfriend and I were very careful whenever things heat up sometimes. We're just wondering why I'm delayed for 2 weeks already. What if there was a drop of pre ejaculate fluid on my vulva? Only a drop since I don't allow him to rub his penis on my genital. How high is the chance of pregnancy in this scenario; if he was on top and unconsciously, a drop of pre ejaculate went on my vulva that we didn't noticed? Can I possibly get pregnant this way? If not, why is my period delayed? And the weird thing is, I don't feel any symptoms PMS either pregnancy. I'm so worried. Please help. Thank you

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us for advice.

I don't think there was any risk of becoming pregnant. Pre ejaculate fluid is the clear, colorless, viscous fluid that is emitted from the urethra of the penis during sexual arousal. It does not contain sperm like semen does. However, if the male has had a prior but recent ejaculation, some sperm can remain in his urethra. But, once he urinates, any stowaway sperm is flushed out.

Your period could be delayed because you are stressing out over this. During periods of stress, the body increases production of the hormone called cortisol. High levels of cortisol signal the body to shut down non essential functions, like the menstrual cycle.

Relax and your period should start. You might find this slide show, "Am I Pregnant? Myths and Facts About Sex" of help.

Thanks for answering Maryann. Is pregnancy still impossible if this incident happened when I was fertile? Because some sites say that you can still be pregnant wuthout penetration but only with precum on your vulva. How likely or unlikely is this to happen? And since I'm still a student, and our vacation or break has only began, can this affect my menstrual cycle? Also, I noticed that my vulva is dry for more than a week already. What does this means? Thank you so much for your patience.

Hello Anonymous,

As I explained, pre ejaculate fluid does not itself contain sperm.
I do not think you were at risk for becoming pregnant. Over thinking this and stressing about it will only further delay the start of your period.

The vulva is the outer part of the female genitals. The vulva includes the opening of the vagina, the labia majora (outer lips), the labia minora (inner lips), and the clitoris.

The Bartholin glands are found just inside the opening of the vagina. There is one on each side. These glands produce a mucus-like fluid that acts as a lubricant during sex.

Anonymous, I don't really understand what you mean when you say the vulva has been dry for more than one week.

Maybe you should schedule an appointment with a gynecologist to make sure there are no problems and a good time to discuss birth control options.

Hi MaryAnn. I still don't have my period today. I relax myself as much as I can. But I'm now starting to feel cramps for the last 2days and I'm really keeping an eye on my vaginal discharge. It turned now slightly yellow and its chunky and dry (paste like). I don't have an idea what this is. So I hope you know. And I felt my boobs sore hesterday but not so much. And my hpt was negative when I tested. I hoping for your patience. Thank you so much.

Hi Anonymous,

Normal discharge may appear clear, cloudy white, and/or yellowish when dry on clothing.

Do you feel the cramps on one side or both sides of your lower abdomen. It is possible that you are ovulating .

I really cannot offer much more and suggest that you contact your physician or visit a women's health clinic, where you can be examined.
