Hi scarleteen, I have a quick question. Is It possible to get pregnant while on your period?? I read online that it is possible if a woman has super short periods. Today is my second day of my period and my boyfriend ejaculated on my crotch toward my butt or perineum I think ? but I had yoga pants and underwear and I also had a pad on which I believe kind of blocked the semen getting on me. Am I at risk? My periods are usually 27-28 days and I ovulate about a week and a half after my period. My period also lasts lik7e 5-7 days. I'm not sure if I should worry. Online people says they have gotten pregnant while on their period but they actually have intercourse. Can someone help me?

It is possible for people to become pregnant from intercourse at ANY time of their cycle. There are simply just times where it is more likely or less likely.

However, I hear you saying here you were dressed, and it is never possible for a person to become pregnant who has clothes on. In other words, no matter what time it is in your cycle, pregnancy is only a possibility if and when you are engaging in the activities that can present that risk. Someone ejaculating on your clothing is not one of those.

Hi babe0224,

So, since you had clothing on, that acted as a barrier, which means that pregnancy is not possible in this situation. As far as getting pregnant while on your period, a person can become pregnant at any point in their cycle

So because I was wearing clothes and a pad that means no sperm could have gotten inside me? Also assuming I won't ovulate this week, there's no way I could be pregnant?

Yes, as Heather said, you cannot become pregnant if you had clothing on.

Oh I havent seen that article, it was kind of funny to me [Smile] Kay seriously last question, in a post about dry humping and clothing, heather said that if its a thin piece of clothing then maybe it can happen. What would be considered thin? Like see-through or like cotton?

Well, this needs to be the last of this for us, too, on this subject, because we have already answered it, including in past posts for you.

Did you read the link that explains how pregnancy happens provided clearly on the end of that page I linked you to? Given how fast you shot back here, I am guessing not. If you want facts of how pregnancy does and does not happen, that's something you need to invest your own time in and read, or other explanations of human reproduction from credible sources like that.

You can also look at this: Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?, where it explains shortly and sweetly that if direct genital contact isn't possible through a garment, this is a non-issue.

Beyond that, we need to be done, and you need to either accept what we're saying or, as is your right, choose not to, but please stop asking. Alternately, we're happy to talk with you about why you think you keep getting hung up on irrational fears despite being given the facts, as that would likely be much more productive. [Smile]

Did you ever get any more help with your anxiety? or perhaps do some new thinking about what you do and don't feel okay with when it comes to any sexual activity, and then start only choosing to engage in things you feel okay about, and confident don't pose any risks you don't want to take? If not, for either, I suspect both of those things are going to go a lot farther for you than the same conversations here, okay?
