Alright so, my boyfriend and I have never had sex. He's dry humped me with both pairs of underwear on, I've been wet he's been wet (precum only) ... But I haven't gotten my period in just over 2 months... I'm afraid somehow I got pregnant? Please help, anything will help !

I, however, am sexually active, and had sex over two months ago, in August - I have had my period twice since then and he wore a condom the few times we did it and I'm also on the Microgynon birth control pill which I take every day between 7-10 usually, though I try and take it at the same time every day.
Logically, I know there shouldn't be a risk, but I find myself being eaten up with worry. There are no symptoms other than "period" symptoms - aching breasts for a few days, very rare nausea, cramps - and of course, my period has arrived twice. In September, I somehow missed one of my pills and experienced spotting for about 7 days afterwards, and then about 5 days later had a lighter-than-normal "period".
I'm really looking for some reassurance - that I'm not pregnant - and that I'm being safe about sex. Is there any way I can free myself of this paranoia? I worry about this too much.
Thank you so much in advance, I really hope I hear from you soon.
In short, it sounds to me like you're being as safe about sex as you can. You're using two methods as directed - that's as safe as it gets. There is always going to be some amount of risk left - no method is 100% safe -, and being able to accept that is part of being ready for sex. If you feel like you cannot stop worrying about this overly much, then it may be time to talk to your partner about taking a step back and not engaging in sexual activities that can carry a pregnancy risk for the time being.
[And for the future, to keep things simple for us, could you please start a topic of your own to start a question? We're much more likely to miss your question if it's at the end of an older thread. You can make a new post by clicking on the "New Topic" button at the top right of the page. Thanks!]
