my girlfriend and i are both 20. last week, while making out, i was nude and she was in her panties. we were kissing and in the process, my naked penis rubbed against her underwear twice. i am sure that i did not ejaculate. she was wet but she had her underwear on all the time.there was no direct contact with her vagina. and also, i am not sure if there was any pre cum present on my penis too. even if there was, it would be just a drop. and i just rubbed against her twice, and we didn't go any further. she was having her underwear on all the time. so what do you think are the chances of pregnancy? Zero? Or can one stray drop of precum pass through her clothes, move into the vaginal opening and get her pregnant? It was on the 7th day after the first day of her periods. And this was the first ever "sexual" thing that we did, as we were carried away. We are not ready for pregnancy, and both are very scared. Please explain the odds clearly
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Pregnancy does not result unless semen or pre-cum comes in direct contact with vagina (during genital contact or fingering). For pregnancy to result with pre-cum coming in contact with vagina, she should be during her fertile days/ovulation time during sexual contact. There are no studies to prove that sperms can swim through fabrics (unless it is thin and lightly woven and there is presence of ample vaginal wetness). Wait and watch for her periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
