Welcome to e health forum.

Pregnancy can occur, only when ejaculation occurs within the vagina, and when the woman is within the fertile period of your cycle. This period is from day 12 to day 16 of a 28 day menstrual cycle.

With regarding to chances of pregnancy : Chances of pregnancy in healthy woman, after a single episode of unprotected sexual intercourse is only about 20-25 %, provided the woman has a healthy and regular menstrual cycles and the intercourse occurred during the fertile period of her menstrual cycle (day 12 - 16 of the menstrual cycle of 28 days).

Dry humping , hugging or foreplay without involving vaginal penetration & ejaculation does not result in pregnancy.

Normally during sex, when ejaculation occurs inside the vagina, about 3 ml of semen (with upto 60 million sperms per ml) is deposited inside the vagina, and most of it is ejected into the uterus, through the cervix. But only thousands of capacitated sperms enter the fallopian tube and only 300-500 reach the ovum, and only one of those sperms can fertilize the ovum.

Hence when a drop or two of semen comes into contact on the clitoris or outside the vaginal introitus - the chance of pregnancy is very rare. This is due to the fact that sperms have to travel a long distance from the external genitalia to the fallopian tubes where conception occurs.

If you have doubts if penetration actually occurred and ejaculation occurred inside the vagina, then getting a pregnancy test would be helpful to clear your doubts.

Home pregnancy urine tests are very sensitive and are around 97% accurate when done correctly. Such tests can be done at least 1 day after you have missed your monthly period (which otherwise where normally regular). If it is negative, a repeat test after 7 days of missing the period, would definitely be confirmatory.

I hope this helps.
