I'm really scared that I'm pregnant. I've read all the articles here, but I'm still scared. From what I've done, apparently there's no risk of pregnancy, but I have symptoms that say otherwise. My period started Jan. 19th and ended on the 24th, and then my boyfriend and I fooled around on the 27th. He had pre-ejaculate on his hand (which he wiped off on his shirt) and then proceeded to finger me, but didn't go into my vagina. I gave him oral afterward. The next day I started to feel sick, I've been having stomach cramps and bloating which have lasted this whole week, and some nausea. Are these signs of pregnancy? We're both virgins by the way.

You're absolutely right that there was no risk.

It's also important to know that you wouldn't be feeling pregnancy symptoms so soon after any kind of sexual activity, risk or no risk.

Take a deep breath. Really. Anxiety can contribute to the icky feelings you're having.

When you say you're both virgins, are you meaning that neither of you has had sexual intercourse? Just as an FYI, that does not have any impact on whether or not you could be pregnant. That's only determined by the activity you engage in, and, as you've read, there is no risk form the activities you've described here.

Neither one of us has had sexual intercourse. Should I still go to the doctor concerning my symptoms?
And he doesn't remember if he wiped it off completely, does that change anything?

No, it doesn't matter if he wiped it or not, though it's really good practice to wash hands before sexual activities to avoid bacteria. [Smile]

It's a good idea for you to go to the doctor if you don't feel well for a long period of time, regardless of what the symptoms are or why they might be happening. Again, though, you did not have sexual activity that poses a pregnancy risk and it's not possible for your symptoms to be pregnancy related anyway. [Smile]

Pregnancy is not something you need to be concerned about, no.

Thank you. I went to my doctor and asked her, and she said that I could not have gotten pregnant without penetration. I trust my doctor and don't want to doubt her, but is that right?
