Sperm and thin fabric

I read that sperm cannot travel through fabric. I was wearing thin cycling shorts and thin panties that time. But not lace. And I am worried that I would get pregnant because of that. Then, nine days after that make out, I got my period.

Hello NikeWitch,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. We appreciate your sharing. Can sperm pass through clothing is a frequently asked question. You saw for yourself, by getting your period, that it cannot pass through and cause pregnancy.

So, I will not be pregnant right? I'm so sorry because I was really worried about it. Thank you very much!
