Is it possible to become pregnant if you are still a virgin?

User Profile
Hi,
I was with my boyfriend and we were dry humping. He had on cotton boxers and thick jeans. I was wearing cotton panties and jean shorts. I was becoming very wet so i could not tell if i was wet because of him or because of myself. I am a virgin and have never had anything penetrate my vagina. I am worried that I may become pregnant. I take birth control but the past few days, i have been taking them at irregular times. We were together three days ago and my period was supposed to start today or in the next two days. It did not start today and I am becoming worried that I may be pregnant. Is it possible to become pregnant if you are still a virgin and there has never been any penetration? Is it possible to become pregnant even if he didn't ejaculate in his pants but there was still pre-ejaculation? After we finished, I went to the bathroom to clean myself up. Is it possible that I pushed any semen up into my vagina? Can I get pregnant right before my period?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Being sexually active around your expected period time can cause hormonal changes resulting in delay in periods. 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 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.
