hello,
how many clothes can sperm go through? if you was dry humping with four layers of clothing (jogging bottoms/jeans and pants. jeans/leggings) could this get you pregnant?

Sperm really can't go through any clothing and remain intact enough to lead to pregnancy. Sperm need the fluid they're in (semen) in order to move and so soaking through clothing just isn't going to do it. Add to that that sperm need a very specific environment, including temperature to survive, and they're just not going to impregnate through clothing. The only exception might be if there was just a light pair of underwear, like a thong, that could move in which case the semen would come into contact with the bare vulva (outside of the genitals).

Does this make sense?

yes that did, thank you!

so basically dry humping cannot lead to pregnancy? also if it did leak through the males underwear would the sperm be dead?

exactly. Dry humping doesn't lead to pregnancy.

Here's the lowdown on which activities are pregnancy risks and which aren't:

It's really up to your body when your period comes.

Do you keep track of the dates of your periods?

For some people periods come after the same number of days each month; for others it varies, sometimes a little and sometimes a lot.

So when your period comes really depends on your body. Not something anyone can predict. *gentle smile*
