I'm worried that I might be at risk for pregnancy, but I'm not sure. I know that the situation I was in put me at risk, but the likely-hood of it being a legitimate concern is what I am unsure of. The other night, my boyfriend and I were kissing on his bed. He had boxers on but I wasn't wearing any bottoms. As we were kissing and moving, his boxers had slid up slightly and I noticed that the tip of his penis had brushed my outer labia. The second I felt it we moved away from each other. He did not ejaculate and did not enter me. Everything felt dry. Immediately after I went to the bathroom and then cleaned myself. Is there a chance I could have gotten pregnant from this form of contact?

What you described does not sound like a risk. Whenever there is genital-to-genital contact, you should consider that pregnancy could occur, but this specific situation doesn't sound like anything to worry about.


Here's some reading about pregnany risks so you can be well-informed.

For the future, would you like to talk about birth control you could use so you don't have to worry so much?

HI, I'm not entirely sure how to make a new post, but I have a related question. I'm on the pill and take it perfectly. My boyfriend and I also use condoms. One night he entered me without one on and then withdrew and put one on before we continued having sex. A week later, I missed a period. In the time between the sex and the period however, I broke a bone and fell ill for a week. Is it possible the stress caused a missed period or should I be concerned?

Welcome to Scarleteen, bats256. It sounds like you used the withdrawal method perfectly here, and you also take the pill perfectly. The pill combined with perfect withdrawal, is 99.98-99.99% effective at preventing pregnancy depending on whether it's the combined pill or the minipill you take. So, that's as close to zero risk as you can get either way, as it's never going to be zero.

It's extremely likely that the stress of breaking a bone - and the limited excercise and difficulty resting which come with breaking a bone caused you to miss a period.

However, if you are still worried, you can take a pregnancy test just for extra reassurance, as it will be accurate by now.
