I'm so nervous and scared right now! Okay, so I went to the movies with my boyfriend tonight... and we started having a little "fun" in the movie theater. I was "playing" with him, and he was putting his hand in my pants, fingering me. (I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to give information like this, but I'm just really scared...) Well, I'd been playing with him for a while before I put my hand in my pants to guide him to where to do it, and I stuck my finger inside me, not thinking that that was the hand I'd been playing with him with... now I'm extremely nervous and scared that I might get pregnant... is it a possibilty, what with my playing with him, and possibly (though I'm not sure) getting his pre-cum on my fingers and then putting them in my vagina? I'm not sure if they had the pre-cum on them, as I was using my spit as lubrication, but I'm just so worried. I really don't need a baby right now, and he said not to worry about it because he doesn't think there was anything on my fingers... what should I do? I haven't gotten my period this month yet, so I'm gonna be anxiously waiting on it... sometimes I skip a month and if I skip this month I'm gonna be so worried! So is this a possibility or am I just over-reacting? Please help!

Did you actually have physical contact with his genitals, or was it just through his clothes? If you didn't come in physical contact with his penis, you have nothing to worry about.

Either way, really, there isn't too much to get worked up over here. Your hands would have to be literally dripping with semen to present a viable risk. So sit back and relax.

On that note, though, keep in mind that having sex or participating in sexual activity in a public place is considered lewd conduct and can be a punishable crime. So if you're going to be sexual, keep it to a private place, even if just out of respect for others.

Okay, thanks, but yes, I did have physical contact with his genitals. I'm not sure if there actually was pre-cum on my fingers or not, but I put them in me and I was just so worried. So what you're saying is that if it was just a little bit of it, then I have nothing to worry about?

Not nothing: the risk of sexually transmitted infections is more pervasive than a risk of pregnancy with this, and that's not nothing. So, do be sure you both get up-to-date with your STI screenings.

But per the pregnancy, again, we can't say there is no risk, but it certainly is most likely an incredibly small risk, if that.

You could get EC if it would make you feel better, but personally, I would not say it is at all necessary in this scenario.

Okay. My boyfriend has never had sex before, or done anything with anyone, so I figured maybe he wouldn't have any STDs or anything. That would be right, right? Well I feel a little better, but next time I'll be more careful.

If neither of you has had any previous partners for any sort of sexual activity, then the risk of STIs is low. There's never no risk, but in most cases where both partners have had no previous partners for ANY sexual activity, the risks are usually low.
