Ok, so I was wondering if you get Precum on the pubic hairs of your vagina, can you get pregnant? It's been about a month since the incident, and I really don't feel any difference in myself besides the few cramps in "that area" and "gas" pains I usually get around my period time, but I was off my birth control for a while, and just started back up, and I also take a bunch of vitamins and stuff. I know that can mess your cycle up, right? I heard there being little to no chance of this happening, but I just want to be sure; so I can calm my nerves. I tend to stress out very bad, causing me to have a big "placebo" affect on my body. Help? (Also, I was sick for about a week. It was a sore throat, and I had to "use" the bathroom. I also had pretty bad chest pains for a little while. This was about a week ago) Thank you.

Consider your nerves calmed. By that I mean you can rest assured that you are not pregnant from a tad of pre-ejaculate on your pubic hair.

I wouldn't take anything you mentioned as a proof of pregnancy. We tend to say there is a pregnancy/sti risk whenever there is direct genital contact. And it sounds like what happened skirts very close to meeting that definition. It wouldn't be fair to say there's completely no risk, but it would be useful to lump it in with other low but existent risk things. Like crossing the road or cycling or driving a car involves the risk of a crash... Thankfully most road users are able to accept that risk without suffering the psychological burden of it, but rather responsibly take precautions just in case. Carpe Diem is right to say there's no cause to panic. Indeed stress can mess with menstrual cycles. For everything you mentioned "This means I'm pregnant" is not really sound at all and the only way to be 100% sure is to take a pregnancy test. I hope that helps a little to put things in context?

Thank you so much guys. My nerves down and I'm feeling less stressed:) But, I also want to know, that if this was outside, does the sperm die when comes in contact with the air? I read about the somewhere..just want to know if it's true. And also, what ARE the odds of having precum inside of the vagina? Just incase my situation takes another toll, or anyone else's. (We are going to be using a condom for everything now, just so that there's no risk though:)

People tend to forget, when they ask that question, that our bodies are full of oxygen. So, sperm cells are always in contact with it, and no, oxygen does not kill sperm.
However, sperm cells need a very specific environment to stay viable and motile (able to potentially co-create a pregnancy and to be able to move), which is why the testes are the way they are: to protect those cells. So, once outside the body, when not transferred to another workable environment for them -- namely, a lab or the vagina, during fertile times of the cycle -- they don't stay viable or motile for long. I don't know what you mean when you ask the odds of pre-ejaculate being inside the vagina. If someone has inserted their penis into the vagina, or rubbed it on the vulva, then those are the situations in which pre-ejaculate fluid may be inside the vagina.
