I was curious as to whether any of you know of females who have gotten pregnant without engaging in intercourse. I myself had a pregnancy scare in the summer after I performed manual sex on my boyfriend. I got the MAP to greatly reduce my chances of pregnancy, and thankfully, I didn't get pregnant, but I could have. My friend is currently worried about pregnacy, but her chances are so low (nearly 0%) that MAP was not neccessary. Thank you so much for this site, I have learned so much, and I gladly share my knowledge with others.

As you've been told in a previous post in Ask an Advocate:
1) Pregnancy without contact of fresh semen to the vulva is an absolute impossibility.
2) Pregnancy with any sort of direct genital contact, or direct contact of fresh semen to the vulva can happen and does happen, though it is a lesser risk than it is with vaginal intercourse. Via maunal sex the risk is low. However the STD and STI risks are NOT as low, and in fact, your average young adult is MORE likely to contact an STD or STI than she/he is to become pregnant, so if she needs something to worry about, I suggest she worry about that, and in either case, get tests for BOTH pregnancy and STD/STIs.

You've posted that several times, and I just realized I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean that physiologically, young adults are more likely than older people to catch an STD/STI, or that on average, more young people catch STDs/STIs than get pregnant?
