Welcome to ehealthforum,
Direct contact of pre-cum or semen with vagina during your sexual contact (genital contact or fingering), can 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). The sexual contact during your periods usually does not result in pregnancy, unless you have had unprotected sexual contact around the end time of periods and if you have early ovulation in your immediate menstrual cycle. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you do not get your periods with 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. 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.
Take care.
