Will this cause pregnancy?

On the 7th my boyfriend and i engaged in "dry humping" and we were both clothed, he did not ejaculate. Although pre-cm was present.
I then began to massage him over his underwear and a bit bare.
He then went to massage me with his fingers, although only touched his jeans to feel if anything went through.

Is it possible i could be pregnant? He said he did not touch the inside of his underwear at any point.

I then got my period on the 9th, is it possible to be pregnant even though i got my period?

Hello Anonia,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your pregnancy concern.

You should not have been at any risk for pregnancy because you were both fully clothed. And you got your period, which proved that you did not become pregnant.

Thanks so much for the reply, I have some concerns...
I was told that sperm can be alive for 2-7 days and that you can become pregnant if you engaged in a sexual activity before your period and become pregnant after...
I was worried as I got my period in the span of two days after the activity.
And hypothetically if one time he did have pre cum on his fingers whilst massaging me, or even myself touch the precinct and reaching down there, can that cause pregnancy?

I appreciate all your help,

Hello Anonia,

You have the highest risk of becoming pregnant during unprotected sex five days before you ovulate and on the day of ovulation.

Pre ejaculate fluid itself does not contain sperm.

If he had a recent ejaculation, sperm can remain in the urethra, which is the tube that urine and semen pass through. Once he urinates, sperm is flushed out.

Sperm can live in the woman's reproductive tract for about five days, so if you have sex five days before you ovulate, you could get pregnant.
