Hi Scarleteen,

Again before I say anything, thankyou in advance for your great help. I have quite a similar situation to a recent poster that know that they're not pregnant but just needs some outside reassurance perhaps.

I am not pregnant, it's pretty clear.

1. My partner and I have never had sex, we have had dry sex with clothing on (underwear & shorts, 3-4 layers).
2. My partner has not ejaculated in a few months. He has never ejaculated whilst we have dry sex or anything else. In other words, he has never ejaculated in my presence and the last time he did was in a wet dream when we first started dating.
We have stopped all physical activity between us for almost a month now.
3. He has only ever had "leakage" he says - which is pre-ejaculate to me which I understand is minimal in volume & does not contain sperm in itself unless it carries trace sperm from a previous recent ejaculation if he hasn't urinated after. But like I said he hasn't ejaculated recently.
4. I got a shorter and lighter withdrawal bleed two weeks after my "non risk" but I attribute that to the fact that I screwed around with my active pill intake.
5. I took 3 pregnancy tests - 19 & 20 days after the non risk.

That pretty much says to me I can't possibly be pregnant. Especially considering no ejaculation ever, so sperm hasn't even been present. But I still can't stop thinking over these facts in my head to convince myself !

Just need someone to confirm with & talk to please [Wink]

Thankyou !

I think this article is a good place to start: You're Not Pregnant. Why Do You think You Are?

Yes thanks I have read that article and it's really good [Smile] I just would love to hear it from a person, not an article.

Well, any of us are going to say exactly what the article says! If you aren't having the kinds of sex that pose a pregnancy risk, there's no way to become pregnant. Everything that we said in your last thread still applies.
If persistent pregnancy fears continue, your next step would be to talk to a doctor, counselor, etc. about managing anxiety.

Yes I completely understand. I guess I just wanted someone to confirm that what I said above on my first post makes sense ?

Thanks

Yes, what you said in your first post makes sense.

You know, when you read something in one of our articles, you're not just hearing from an article, you Are hearing it from a person: the person who wrote the article. A lot of our content is written or co-written by Heather, so you're hearing from her; personally, I can't think of anyone better [Smile]
