My boyfriend and I slept together a couple nights ago, and he never actually penetrated and went in my vagina, but he did rub his penis against that area (the vulva, I guess?). what are the chances that I could get pregnant from this?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were during fertile days or closer to ovulation time at time of sexual contact, and if pre-cum or semen has come in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy could be possible. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or 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). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy. 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.
