User Profile
Hello im 17 years old and my boyfriend and I have been getting more intimate. One time we almost had sex but I told him I wasnt ready and most of all I didnt want to get pregnant. The thing is that 3 weeks ago I was sitting on him and I knew he was getting exited, buy I didnt
move anyways when I got home my leg was wet and I checked maybe I was my own fluid but I was dry I dont get exited easily like him buy im concerned because now im 2 week late on my period. But is it possible I might be pregnant? If there was no intercourse and we both we dressed? Can sperm penetrate threw all that clothing?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If semen or pre-cum has not come in direct contact with vagina and if you were not around your ovulation time, chances of pregnancy resulting can be ruled out. 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). For pregnancy to result, pre-cum or semen should come in direct contact with vagina during your fertile days/ovulation time. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance you do not get your 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 started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
