My girlfriend who is 16, for the past few months has been getting her period as per usual, 2 months ago on the 11th and last month on the 16th which is normal as she has irregular, since her last period the only things we did were, we dry humped (she was wearing no clothes, i had underwear and shorts on) and no semen was involved, and also ive been fingering her, no semen involved. Maybe little to no precum but if it had have been noticed id have wiped it away. anyway its the 25th now the last period was as i said the 16th of last month, she has had one or 2 signs of period but could she be pregnant? i heard implantation bleeding and pregnancy are the same as PMS and getting signs for periods, she has also been stressed about school etc, upset for personal reasons and other things could the stress have knocked her periods a bit off track, shes not worried its pregnancy but im worried and i dont want to worry her by saying it, am i worrying for nothing or could she be pregnant?, thanks.

The only sound answer to this is for someone to take a pregnancy test.

By all means, regular periods make very clear someone is not pregnant, and it doesn't sound like this one is actually late, looking at the dates of her last two periods. As well, people cannot become pregnant when one partner is dressed. Lastly, pregnancy by no means feels or is just like periods, especially as the months go on, and implantation bleeding, which is rare, anyway, is one-time, brief, light spotting, not like periods.

But if her period isn't enough for her to feel clear she is not pregnant, then a pregnancy test is her next step..

thanks, she said shes not worried she thinks everythings going to be okay im just worried, because i didnt know if these things could actually pose a pregnancy risk, do you think i should be worried, we dont really have access to pregnancy tests we live a bit far away from the chemist and also its too risky that id be caught buying one same with her, thats why im very worried..

Again, what you have described is not how pregnancy happens. But since you don't feel, obviously, well informed about that yet, and are so worried, I would suggest stepping back from those kinds of sex until you can take the time to get more informed, and then figure out what you really are or are not comfortable with.

Same goes for not feeling able to do things for yourselves at times like these, like getting a pregnancy test when you want or need one. That says to me you are moving faster than makes sense with your own pace and what you are really ready for, you know?
