One month ago, I and my boyfriend had sex.
He actually was fingering me, dry humping me. And his penis did touch my vagina on the outside, the opening vagina. i'm pretty sure that he didn't leak out. This is the first time for both of us.

and now, my period is one week late.. am i pregnant? [Frown]

If there was any direct genital-to-genital contact, then you did have a pregnancy risk.

However, we can't tell you if you're pregnant- since it's been a month and your period is late, though, you can take a pregnancy test now and find out.

Why are you afraid of your family? Pregnancy tests are very easy to get- they're sold on the shelves in most pharmacies and drugstores, even sometimes in grocery stores if they're big enough, and they usually cost somewhere around 15-20 bucks.

I gotta ask you, based on your history too, why aren't you guys using protection? You were told in your last thread that things like this can create a pregnancy risk, and an STI risk too.

[Edit: actually, IS this about the same risk you mentioned in your previous thread?]

we know each other for 2 years. My bf didn't want to have sex. we thought it'd be ok if we're just playing around without penetration.

Well, as was explained to you earlier, any unprotected genital contact does create a pregnancy and STI risk- in your case, the STI risk was greater than the pregnancy risk, though.

But since your period is late, it may not be a bad idea to get a test.

I am 2 wks late, I started spotting 7 days after I was supposed to get my period, and have been spotting for the past 7 days. I have read that implantation can only occur before your period and not after, I have had 2 neg. preg. test. Can I still be pregnant?

[Rvaldovinos, next time please start your own thread via the "new topic" button at the top of each page.

Without knowing when your pregnancy risk was, and when you took the tests, we can't tell you whether the results were accurate. If they were 10-14 days after the risk, then you can trust the results.

You CAN become pregnant after your period- there is no truly safe time to have unprotected sex. This spotting may be your period, but if it continues for much longer, it may not be a bad plan to get it checked out by a gyn.]
