Hello, im a 20 year old college student.. i wanna ask is it possible to get pregnant from dry humping.. me and my boyfriend have tried dry humping almost 2 weeks ago and i was wearing my thong while he’s at it and then he stopped and didnt ejaculate near me but i remember that i was still wet and im scared that i might be pregnant so after the first dry hump 2 hours later we did it again but he didnt ejaculate and we stopped.. after that i panicked and went to buy birthcontrol pills to be sure i used them 3 days straight and stopped ( im still a virgin) i removed my underwear after the second time because it was wet.. im so scared is it okay to stop taking birth control if your gonna stop having any kind of sexual intercourse ? Im freaking out by the fact that i might be pregnant .. please reply..

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
first of all,dry humping can not turn you pregnant.Get this point sure and do not stress yourself unduly.Secondly,common birth control pills acts only if you start them from a considerable time earlier and continue it regularly.So,stop them,There is as such no harm by stopping them abruptly,except you might face some unscheduled bleeding or spotting.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
