CAN SOMEONE GET PREGNANT WITHOUT INTERCOURSE? What are the odds of having foreplay? I'm irregular, i don't know when my period would come. I am really stressing out.

Thanks for asking. Fortunately, it is very unlikely that you will get pregnant without intercourse. As for foreplay, according to our Am I Pregnant, Myths & Facts Page,

"You can get pregnant if you engage in body rubbing with your clothes off. Sperm can come in contact with the vulva or vagina. Any type of sex play where semen comes in contact with the vulva can possibly lead topregnancy. Although the chances are low, sperm can travel through the moisture on the vulva and into the vagina."
