Hi Scarleteen,

I've posted here before about dry humping, but I come with another question. My girlfriends period is late 4 days now and I need personal advice on whether or not I should be worried. My girlfriend and I have been dating for sometime now. We've never had sexual intercourse (vaginal or anal) nor have we had direct genital to genital contact. But we would do almost everything except the activities I stated before (i.e. Oral sex, Manual sex, Dry humping etc. etc.). And when these sexual activities take place, there is always one person with clothes on.
Now, it has been exam month and she tends to stress over it and I know that is probably why she is late but I can't seem to get over it. She is not worried about pregnancy at all, and she also says that she is having the usual PMS she normally gets. IT seems as though I am the only one in the worry here. I guess what I'm trying to say, is that is there any way, anyway that pregnancy could happen from outercourse.

Sincerely,

Firebird [Smile]

Hi FireBird,

how about you try to answer your own question, using our materials?
Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?
Where DID I Come From? A Refresher Course in Human Reproduction

If you have questions about those pieces, we'll be happy to talk about them with you.

Thank you so much for the very quick reply. But I do have one question. Where it says there is no pregnancy chance with manual sex, where are the limitations on that? I wash my hands before anything is done like such. So I guess there is nothing that I should worry about and that her period shall come soon?

Washing your hands before engaging in manual sex is good for reducing the risks of infections, so you'll definitely want to keep that up! [Smile]

As for reducing pregnancy risks, there aren't any exceptions to manual sex not posing a risk; we would have said if there were. [Smile]
