My boyfriend and I had sex last week, and I know for a fact some of his cum stayed inside me. Now I started my period, could I still be pregnant or did I luck out? Or will it be next month when I miss my period,I'm totally clueless when it comes to this stuff. Please help!

Chances are, you got lucky this time and are not pregnant. if however, next month you have a late period, by all means, take a pregnancy test. As well, you and yours will need to schedule STI screens.

For the record, ejaculate "staying in" isn't required for conception to occur. Most of semen is other fluids besides sperm, so when ejaculate eventually slides out, as it will, that doesn't mean sperm have vacated with it; they swim upwards.

Unprotected sex is ALWAYS a pregnancy and STI risk, so if you're going to remain sexually active, time to get hold of some condoms, learn to use them, and talk with your partner about birth control and safer sex.

Well by the way u said, "luck out", to me it sounds like your trying to get pregnant? Is this true?

If you are you want to make sure that ur going to be able to support a child. I have a lot of friends that have children who wish that owuld have waited longer until they had their children because they couldnt afford them or where still kids and not ready for them. Just a thought

Hey, i didn't exactly want to start a new post because this post relates to my problem right now.
Ok, so i've missed my period for January and its Febuary 1st today and still no period. i haven't really gotten any major symptoms, just breakouts and headaches, my breasts aren't sore(they usually get sore the week before). I'm 17 and i'm not regular at all. My period is all over the map. I could get it the first week of one month then the third week of the other. Now, my boyfriend and I are not having intercourse but we do fool around a bit. In Decmeber, we fooled around and had dry sex, and he came, it ended up on my stomache and on my underwear, but only the top of my underwear was wet, and maybe a few hairs on the top of my pubic area(i'm pretty sure). My period came about a week and half later, so I wasn't worried. That was the last time my boyfriend and I did anything that could possibly get me pregnant. So now, i'm wondering could i be pregnant? I don't really think so since his cum did not come in contact with my vulva or vaginal opening, i'm pretty sure.
By the way, I haven't missed a period since i was 14. So i'm really curious as to why i've missed it this month. Should I take a pregancy test?

Well, if your period is irregular (and unless you're writing dates down it can be pretty hard to tell) you may not yet have missed a period. It sounds like you didn't actually have a pregnancy risk.

Check out Dude, Where's My Period? and see if that clears things up a bit. You can also take a pregnancy test and expect an accurate result if you're still concerned.

I didn't really want to start a new topic because this is very very similar to what I am dealing with. My now ex-boyfriend and I fooled around(oral sex). He pleasured me then I pleasured him. He got some semen on my clothes but I don't think any came in contact with my genital area. I had my period a normal week later around Jan 10. I haven't had it since. This is really stressing my out and my period has been pretty regular until now. what are my chances.

Very unlikely. Oral sex isnt exactly known to cause pregnancy, that's why a lot of people do it.
