Welcome to ehealthforum,
Dry sex usually does not result in pregnancy. 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). If pre-cum or semen has come in direct contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods) as well as regulate your periods. Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

This really helped me too. I was worried about pregnancy because my breasts are tender, and the only sexual thing I did previously to this soreness was dry sex where the rubbing from his coarse pants on my vagina made it COMPLETELY dry and we're pretty sure he even ejaculated away from me. I'm also on birth control, but I'm a little OCD about safety and not becoming a teen mom Razz Thank you for furthr easing my mind! Smile
