While my boyfriend and I were hanging out we were dry humping and I had my panties on but he didn't have his boxers on. I also had my period and had a tampon in and he didn't ejaculate. Is there any possibility I could get pregnant from this?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having intercourse during your periods usually does not result in pregnancy as the chances of egg being present in your system at that time is nil. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms of pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet. Drink plenty of water. If you are worried about pregnancy, you can consider taking emergency contraception within 48-72 hours of the intercourse. If you intend to remain sexually active, 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.
Take care.
