What are the Chances I am Pregnant?

Published: October 31, 2016
Dear TeenHealthFX,
My boyfriend and I were dry humping while i was ovulating. We were both fully clothed (jeans and underwear/boxers) we were doing it very gently and for like 4 or 5 mins. Most of the time i was just sitting on top of him. He did not ejaculate, but he did have precum that made a wet spot on his jeans. And i was also wet in my jeans. What are the chances of me being pregnant, i am very worried. thank you

Dear What Are the Chances I am Pregnant?,

In order for pregnancy to occur, the sperm found in pre-ejaculatory or ejaculatory fluids needs to come into contact with the vagina. Given that you both had your clothes on the entire time, FX cannot imagine how any semen could have come into contact with your vagina. That said, FX also cannot imagine that you could be pregnant.

However, FX would like to encourage you and your boyfriend to learn about how pregnancy happens, safer sex and sexual readiness. It is important that you both think about your limits when it comes to being physically intimate with one another and share them with each other so you don’t go any further than you are BOTH comfortable with. It is also important that you are both prepared to protect yourselves against any unwanted pregnancies or the transmission of STDs in case you decide to become more intimate with one another in the future.

FX recommends you read our Resource of the Month: Planned Parenthood Resources on Safer Sex where you can learn about sexual readiness, birth control, STDs, emergency contraception, pregnancy tests and more. It would also be a good idea to discuss these issues with your primary care physician or an adolescent medicine specialist. If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
