My boyfriend and I were playing on the bed. He pulled down my panties and He fingered me first but I'm not sure if he had touched his precum. (but his pants were on before I removed them) After that, while he was fingering me, I unzipped his pants and pulled down his boxer. I'm sure he did not touch his penis during this time. I was giving him a Handjob while he fingered me. This happened one day after my period ended and my period is a 29-31 day cycle. Assuming that if he had precum on his finger when he fingered me, how possible is it for me to get pregnant? and assuming our genitals did touched which I do not think it did, but if it did what are the chances of me getting pregnant? thank you for your time. Oh and I have read "pregnancy scared" prior to typing this. However it stated there that manual sex will not result in pregnancy. But I don't know if it includes fingering with precum. Thanks again. May God bless you.

"Manual sex" means any kind of sex where hands are touching someone else's genitals.

So, when something says there isn't a risk of X with that kind of sex, it really does mean just that, and will tend to take into account things like the fact that all too many people don't wash their hands before touching someone else's genitals (which isn't really an issue per pregnancy, but boy howdy, can it be one with infections, including UTIs).

So, when you read that piece, and it said manual sex doesn't pose a real risk of pregnancy? It totally included situations like you're asking about here. [Smile]

so you mean there is no risk? What if his hands have precum and then he fingered me? and also, what if our genitals touched by accident? thank you for your quick response.

As Heather said, when we're talking about manual sex not posing a risk of pregnancy, we're talking about manual sex in all situations, including ones where one partner may have some pre-ejaculate on their fingers.

If his penis came in contact with your vulva, then that would pose a risk, but I'm not hearing that that's what happened here.

Sorry for bothering, however, is the risk high or low in that sense? And a last question alright? if my period is 29-31days, is it possible to ovulate on the 8 or 9th day?

It's not possible to know when someone ovulates. The only way to know when you ovulate is to keep track of your cervical mucus and basal body temperature every day for several months. Doing that, a person comes to understand their cycles and have a clearer sense of when different phases of their cycle occur.

Here's some more information on that.

Thank you very much. However, may I ask you since genitaL contact poses a risk, is the risk really high? I ovulate about 2weeks after my period. And it happened the day after my period ended. Once again thank you for The help you guys have given me. Deeply appreciated. And Sorry for breaking the agreement. , I was really paranoid . I have learnt that i wont be doing these without protection already.
Thank you (:

The risk varies with genital contact - if your partner ejaculated then the risk would be much higher than if there had been no ejaculation. However, I'm not hearing that there was any direct genital contact, so there would be no risk to worry about in the first place.
