I feel kind of silly asking this. I have alreasy asked my boyfriend and he told me there isn't a risk of pregnancy. I also was on a few other question forums and they too said not to worry. However, I will not stop worrying until I hear it from an expert. Ok first off I want to say I am a virgin and so is my boyfriend. We have not participated in any type of sexual activity. However, about two weeks ago, my hand was below his pants, and I was rubbing his leg. I only intended on rubbing his leg, but he moved which caused my to accidently touch the bottom of his penis. Apparently I barely touched it, because I didn't even realize I had done this until my boyfriend told me. Which wasn't until I came back from the bathroom several minutes after this happened. I have been so worried that maybe there was pre-cum on my fingers and that it might have gotten in my vagina when I was wiping myself in the bathroom. I asked my boyfriend about it and he told me that there wasn't any pre-cum in that area and even if there was, I touched the bottom of his penis so there wouldn't be any there. I honestly do not remember anything being on my fingers, but I can't stop worrying that I might have gotten pregnant from this. I know it sounds silly, but I can't stop worrying. I was supposed to get my period a day after this happened but didn't. Usually I wouldn't worry cause I tend to be irregular but this scenario has caused me to freak out. So could you please help me put my worries to rest. Is there any reason to be worried? Could I have gotten pregnant from this incident?

I read the article. From what I read, there is no chance of pregnancy, right? [Smile]

That's correct, not a risk here.

So if my bofriend fixed himself (happened to have pre-cum on his fingers) then touched me above the underwear or on my inner thigh, this too would not be a pregnancy risk, right?

Ok I know you told me there is no pregnancy risk what so ever from these scenarios. However, I was wondering if you could better inform me on your pregnancy risk articles. I remember a teacher of mine once said a girl could become pregnant if a guy ejaculated on her leg because the sperm can swim into the vagina. However, based on your articles this is incorrect. I am just wondering why a person couldn't get pregnant if there happened to be precum or semen on a finger and the finger touched the vagina area. Is it because the sperm have been exposed to air? I would really appreciate if someone could better inform me, that way I can be more careful in any activity I may decide to participate in. Thanks in advance [Smile]

Hi worriestoomuch,

Yes, what your teacher said was incorrect. Unless what she meant was right next to the vulva, there's no way sperm can "swim" up a leg into the vagina.

This article explains more of how reproduction works, and I think reading it might make things clearer for you.
