So On 25 of October my boyfriend and I started to dry hump. It was the last day of my period. He was wearing basketball shorts and I was wearing underwear. He ejaculated through his shorts and my underwear was wet. I am so scared because I have not gotten my period since then....and I have been starting to get Redish brown vaginal discharge. i do have irregular cycle but I'm still really worried because I have also been feeling bloated. Please help! [Frown]

Hi and thanks for making a new thread,

It's not uncommon for a person's cycle to skip a period. There are many reasons why a period can be late. You can find more info on that here: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/gender/m_i_a_or_dude_wheres_my_period

Okay. So there is no chance I could be pregnant? Even with the brown/red vaginal discharge? I read that as a sign of pregnancy.

The activity you engaged in cannot cause pregnancy. It's likely that the discharge you are having is related to your period starting, especially if you are having other period/PMS symptoms.

I don't know where you are reading things like that, but chances are, it is not somewhere sound.

Regardless, to become pregnant, a person has to actually be part of the activities that can present a possibility of pregnancy. As the link up top, and other things within it, made clear, dry humping is not one of those things. Sperm and egg cells are not magic, and we know by now, and have for a long time, the science of reproduction and what it requires.

That said, if you have not had any periods since October, it would be wise to check in with a healthcare professional. There are many reasons for periods to be missed, but when it is for many months, especially after you have had established cycles, or have had periods for more than a few years, it's smart to look into. You want to, for instance, make sure you are eating enough for your health, as one example, as being underweight is one of the most common reasons for periods to go missing for that long. But you'd also want to rule out some other things, too, just to be sure nothing is wrong with your health.
