Scared about being pregnant

this will probably sound immature, but this is the only way I can explain my situation..
I was fooling around with my boyfriend, and I gave him a handjob to which he came.
after wiping it off and about 20 minutes later I rubbed my vagina on his penis. I never went in, but I know there was some cum that he had wiped off on his penis. I am worried that I could be pregnant, because I know that sperm can swim very quickly.
Could I be pregnant? My period will be here on the 9th like usual.. and I know that all I can do it wait at the moment. But I have an anxiety disorder and anything will help to calm me down. Please help

Hi Flowechild0123,

Welcome back to EmpowHER.  Like i said before, stress is a cause to delay your period.  Sometimes other hormonal changes can also play a role in delaying it. If your periods are usually between the 5th and 8th, you might not still be a week late. Many women first choose a home pregnancy test (HPT), about a week after a missed period.  Doctors often order these tests to confirm pregnancy as early as 10 days after a missed period. However, some of these tests can detect hCG much earlier.

Hi flowerchild0123,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  Many things can be the cause of a delayed period and stress is one of the causes. Sometimes we're so stressed out that our body decreases the amount of a hormone (GnRH), which causes us to not ovulate or menstruate.   And yes, Pre-ejaculatory fluid can contain sperm. That's why is important to use protection against pregnancy and STD's. Being young it's best to always use protection against pregnancy and STD's. If your period doesn't come in a few days, it's best to see a doctor.

He did not ejaculate inside of me.. I know for a fact that he did not. I can't go to a doctor, because my parents can not know.

I will be taking the test later tonight or tmrow morning. I am hoping and praying that I am not pregnant because Im too young, and We both are not ready.

Do you think being only 6 to 8 days late is okay? It could be because of so much stress I have been having...right? because I am in SOMUCH stress at the moment. ANY thoughts would help
