my girl had her period in the beginning of september, i think it was around the 4th...last week we were making out and i was fingering her, and i put the tip of my penis inside of her but i didn't penetrate...we did that 3 other times within the past 2 weeks, all those times i didn't come or even penetrate her...
now her period is running late and i'm starting to freak out. she says she's fine but i'm just worried. could she be pregnant?

thank you

Not to scare you but yes she could be pregnant so there are two things you can do 1) have her take a pregnancy test or 2)just wait to see if she starts. The reason how she could be pregnant even though u never came was because every guy has precum which contains, not a lot, but some sperm. Depending on how late she is I wouldnt worry. But if she is a week or more late then I would see about getting her a test.

Here's the thing: if ANY part of your penis had direct contact with your partners vulva, let alone her vagina, you HAVE had intercourse, and you HAVE created pregnancy and STI risks.

Period. Punto. End of story. Biology doesn't give a hoot about "technical" virginity. It cares about genital contact and the exchange of body fluids.

So, yes, both pregnancy AND STIs (the latter for bot of you) are an issue here. Your partner ca take a pregnancy test now, the two of you should each schedule a full STI screen a month from now AND you should start being concerned in ADVANCE, whe it matters. That means using condoms, at a minimum, for all direct genital contact.

(It may also help to ditch the denial and accept that you're sexually active: just coming clean with that in your own head can make managing sexual health and risks more maturely and responsibly a lot easier.)
