I know you can still bleed throughout a pregnany, but i would like to know two things...

1. How heavy would the bleeding be?
2. How long would the bleeding last?

Would it be like a light period? Cause im a bit concerned, i think i am going to wait to see if i have a period, and if its different do you think i should take a pregnancy test?

Because does anyone know of anyone who has gotten pregnant by getting fingered with semen on the fingers?

Cause i am stressing out that i might be pregnant. I know it sounds stupid cause nearly everyone says you can only get pregnant from having sex, but i know different. I am just worried because about 3 days ago my boyfriend and i were fooling around, and i gave him oral sex and manual sex and when he came he collected it up in a tissue. Then without washing his hands he fingered me about...15 minutes later maybe less than that. So i am now concerned that i could be pregnant...i have heard you can get pregnant this way...and im scared. Any help would be really great. Thanks

If the pregnancy is sustained -- in other words, if one is not miscarrying -- it would only be spotting. It would not be like a period.

Pregnancy via the scenario you're describing is possible, but not likely, especially if your partner did not literally have a fingerful of fresh semen.

It is possible to get pregnant that way, like Miz Scarlet said, but also as she said, unless he literally came on his fingers and then fingered you almost straight away it is unlikely.

If you're worried take a pregnancy test ten to 14 days after your risk or as soon as you miss a period, whichever comes first. That is the only way to be 100% certain.
