Welcome to ehealthforum,
There are no studies to prove that sperms can swim through fabrics (unless fabric is very thin and lightly woven and there is ample vaginal wetness). If semen or pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid came in direct contact with vagina, pregnancy can result. Do not worry about the âsituationâ that you describe if there was no contact of pre-cum or semen with vagina. If you intend to remain sexually active, consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact. Wait and watch for next periods.
If there was direct contact of semen/pre-cum with vagina, then consider taking emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy (it should be taken within 48 hours of the unprotected intercourse/sexual contact to be effective).

Welcome back to ehealthforum,
Thanks for the repeat query.
The timing of the sexual contact seems to lie during your probable ovulation days (if you have regular menstrual cycles). Lighter and shorter periods could also be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If the semen came in direct contact with vagina or vaginal wetness, pregnancy can result. If you suspect to be pregnant, or if you are having symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy, or if you miss your next periods, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation/examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
