Well I've been panicking a lot recently, and I've had three periods and lots of negative tests, so I'm assured I'm not pregnant, although my friend's mum is a midwife so she's going to have a quick poke of my tummy as proper reassurance.
9 weeks ago, my boyfriend and I got a bit carried away. There was definitely no penetration or ejaculation, but his penis rubbed around my vulva. There was no condom, but probably pre-ejac fluids and I'd used no b/c that month.
Would this be a risk? I'm only asking for further reassurance for myself, thankyou x

There's no reason to feel stupid! So many of us worry about pregnancy at one point or another, and it can be really hard to fight against irrational emotions with reason.
It might help if you get a better understanding of how menstruation works: over the course of the menstrual cycle, lining builds up in the uterus to make a cozy home for a fertilized egg. The egg needs that lining to implant in, otherwise a pregnancy cannot occur. Now, when a woman does not become pregnant, the lining in the uterus is shed at the end of the menstrual cycle and is flushed out - that's what your period is.
So when you have a period, you can be totally sure that you are not pregnant.
And you've had not one but three periods since your pregnancy risk, so there's absolutely no room for doubt here.
