A month ago, me and a guy were messing around in the bathroom. We did get naked, and I did touch his penis, but only the top. We didn't have intercourse although we were rubbing and since it was a while ago I can't remember if it was close enough to my vagina or not. I think around that time, I was probably around 14-16 days into my cycle. And my period was due two weeks ago but it hasn't come. Can I have gotten pregnant through that?

Unless you had direct genital contact -- his penis, on your vaginal opening, anus, or right in that area -- or direct fluid contact -- his semen, on your vaginal opening or very nearby -- you did not have a pregnancy risk.

If you DID, then yes, you may have had a pregnancy risk. Surely you can remember if his penis was rubbed on your vulva, no? That'd be a pretty odd thing to forget.

I'm a bit inexperienced...so where exactly is the vuvlva?
And how close does the penis have to be to my opening?
Also, will I have felt wet if semen was released, because I didn't.

Check this out: Pink Parts - Female Sexual Anatomy. It's pretty important to understand your own genitals before you let someone else. [Smile]

Your vulva is the whole of your genitals: your vagina, vaginal opening, clitoris, mons, labia.

If your partner was rubbing his penis inside your outer labia, around your anus or vaginal opening, then you are looking at STI and pregnancy risks.

In terms of feeling ejaculate, if you were in the shower or bath, absolutely not -- you couldn't feel that. Too, when we're aroused, we have our own fluids, so it all feels pretty goey, regardless.

But we weren't in the shower, we were outside it, and since we were never wet would I have felt the semen?

It's hard to say. You may or may not have.

I'll repeat what Heather said again: if your partner was rubbing his genitals around your vaginal area, you have a pregnancy/STI risk, whether you felt semen or not.

Good news, then.

Just understand -- and let your boyfriend in on this, too -- that if you're going to be having genital contact, it needs to be protected. STIs are a real risk (with or without fluids). Pregnancy is a real risk. Neither of these things are smart things to gmable with, and there's no need to when protecting against them is so, so easy.

So, sounds like it's time to talk about stocking up with some condoms, and time to make clear they always need to be used, okay?
