If my boyfriend fingered me and had pre-ejaculate/ejaculate on his fingers that was probably dried could I be pregnant? Im still waititng for my period to come but nothing yet so I'm scared.

That is not a way pregnancy is at all likely to happen, no. Ideally, a partner touching your genitals would wash their hands first, as infections are a real risk -- certainly including STIs or bacterial infections -- when they don't.

But the way pregnancy happens via sexual activities is with direct genital-to-genital contact (like intercourse or naked rubbing) or DIRECT contact of ejaculate with your genitals, like if a partner were to ejaculate directly inside of or unto your vulva.

This just isn't the way pregnancy happens.

There are many reasons periods can be late or missed, including stress. Have you taken a look at this before?

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

My perod is a few days late but I feel like I am experiencing some symptoms I usually have. Does that mean it will probably come soon?

Did you read that link Heather gave you above?

There's no way for us to know when your period will arrive. Your best bet is to do your best to relax and just wait it out.

I had a little bit of darkish discharge today that looks like my period is starting and now a couple hours later there is nothing at all so what does this mean? Could my period just be starting slowly or is it something else?

Again, we cannot know when your period will start. Why don't you give it a little more time to see if the spotting turns into your period?
