My period is three days late, and I'm worried. I've had two different scenarios this month. He had his pants on both times, but I did not.
The first one, as soon as my boyfriend got to my house he fingered me, and his hands were dry, nothing was on them. We hung out for like an hour then he fingered me again. I left the room for like 5 minutes. He promised he didn't touch himself, but even if he did, and had a little bit of pre cum on his hand, his hands were dry when he touched me, (no fluid on them). He has also touched other stuff before touching me down there.
The second time, he washed his hands before touching me, so nothing could be on his hands. I rubbed the outside of his pants, could pre cum have seeped through his pants onto my hand? I touched myself about five minutes later, but had touched other things after his pants, like his back and my bed.
Is there any way I could be pregnant? We had no genital contact, his pants were on the entire time, so the only thing that worries me is if precum came through his pants and onto one of our hands. (If it had gotten on our hands, we had wiped it off on something and neither of us had fluid on our hands while touching me down there.)

HI Laurel222,

Periods can be late for lots of reasons, including stress, illness (even mild illness like colds) or just our bodies deciding for the heck of it that they're going to do something different this month!

To learn more about late periods, you can take a look at this article.

M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

Right now we're asking people to assess their own level of pregnancy risk based on the tools we've provided. You'll find everything you need to determine whether or not you've had a pregnancy risk, and if so, what you can do about it, at the link I've pasted below. If you do have questions or concerns about any of this, we're always happy to talk about it further.

I read all of those articles and I feel like none of them address my situation [Frown] What I am wondering is if pre cum was on his hand, then wiped off, then fingered me, is it possible to get pregnant?

Laurel, here are a couple of quotes from the Pregnancy Scared article that Robin linked you to that I think answer your question:#

Have you not had any kind of sex at all (and were not sexually assaulted), but are worried because of something like touching a partner's hand then touching yourself, or using a towel that may have had dried semen on it? These kinds of scenarios do NOT pose risks of pregnancy. Sperm and ovum need specific conditions in which to co-create a pregnancy, and these ain't them.
Were you only kissing, having oral sex, manual sex and/or dry sex, where everyone had clothes on and no one ejaculated on or very near anyone else's vulva? These kinds of sex do NOT present any pregnancy risks, though some can present risks of STIs.
