If I got fingered by a hookup, is there a risk of pregnancy? My periods are usually regular and I'm about a week late so far. There was nothing on his finger, but I know he masturbates (and could have maybe a couple hours before, for all I know) and it's possible that he adjusted himself and got some precum or something on his hand.

Hi Cassandra,

I'm sorry your late period has caused such a worry. We say that for there to be a pregnancy risk there has to be direct genital contact, or a decent quantity of fresh still-wet semen transferred to a person's vagina. It doesn't sound to me like that's what happened.

Unless you had any other risks I wouldn't say that scenario should have caused a pregnancy.

You may have to wait and see, but be aware that periods can come late for plenty of reasons including stress.

Here's also something to read regarding potential sources of pregnancy or STI risks:

I hope that helps

Thank you. I'm just extremely worried because my period has always been very regular - and I've been stressed lately, but I was primarily stressed after ovulation should have occurred, rather than before or during. Plus sometimes it feels like the universe is out to get me [Razz]

Unfortunately/fortunately, I don't think the universe minds so much!

If you're super worried you could of course take a pregnancy test.

To me it just sounds like your menstrual cycle is messing about. I mentioned stress but also sometimes ovulation and a period just doesn't happen.

I also probably should have shared this article with you:
MIA, or Dude Where's My Period
