Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you suspect direct contact of pre-cum or semen with vagina at any time during your sexual contact and if you are not ready for baby you should have considered taking emergency contraception within 48-72 hours of the unprotected sexual contact to prevent pregnancy. There are no studies to prove that sperms can swim/pass through fabrics (unless it is thin and lightly woven and there is presence of ample vaginal wetness). Wait and watch for your next periods. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active, consider getting 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.
Take care.
