I have read the Pregnancy Scared article, although right now I am not sure which category I fall in. And I'm really scared I might be pregnant.

I have missed my period, it was supposed to come a week ago, and I thought it was going to come because I've had cramps and been a lot moody, also my breasts are very sore and sensitive. I'm also craving certain foods. I'm not sure if I'm just paranoid or what. But occasionally I still have cramps. No vomiting or spotting whatsoever.

I have never had sexual intercourse with my boyfriend, although the most we've done is dry hump with only our underwear on (and most of the time he has shorts on) without him ejaculating. There was pre-cum though. Now I'm scared it could have seeped through the underwear. Me and him are freaking out cause my period is usually regular, and I'm stressing out about this quite a bit. Because I'm not ready for it.

What are the risks? Could I be pregnant? Thank you so much.

Precum seeping through underwear will not make you pregnant, neither will ejaculate. Sperm can't make it's way through clothing and still be in a viable state to impregnate.

Neither precum or ejaculate can make anyone pregnant if it has to seep through clothing first.

Sounds like these symptoms, the breast tenderness, moods, cramps, etc, are pretty typical for you before a period and you are, for whatever reason, late this time. Stress will affect when it comes too, so take a few deep breaths.

Nothing you've described here poses a pregnancy risk.

P.S. Apologies for two posts. Must have hit the reply button by accident before I was done. [Smile]
