My boyfriend and I had dry sex.. I kept my underwear on, but he was nude and went in with my underwear as a barrier. He precummed inside on my wet panties,which were covering anywhere he touched. Could I be pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
There are no studies to show that sperms can swim through fabrics (unless it is thin and lightly woven and there is ample vaginal wetness present). If pre-cum or semen has come in direct contact with vagina (during genital contact or fingering), pregnancy can result (especially if you are during your fertile days at the time of sexual contact). If you suspect direct contact with semen at any time during your sexual contact, you can consider taking emergency contraception within 48 hours of the sexual contact to prevent chances of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. 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 or repeated use of ECP.
Take care.
