I feel quite irresponsible for wondering if I'm pregnant, because this is the second occassion in 2 months, but nevertheless, I'm asking.

I've been researching answers on the boards for years now, which is why I'm pretty sure of the answer I'll recieve to my question. Tonight, my boyfriend and I got caught up in a heat-of-the-moment deal, and we went from dry humping fully clothed to him rubbing his penis against my clitoris. I know he didn't ejaculate, but there might have been some pre-ejaculate fluid. That lasted only a few minutes before I realized that this didn't seem safe, with me not being on birth control or him wearing a condom. I left the room right after and wiped all of my lubrication off, leaving it dry. I also had a tampon in as this is the 2nd day of a usual 5 day period. Later I took a wash cloth and washed my genitals with warm water.

What is the risk of the situation, on the mild to severe scale?

You would have a very low risk of pregnancy in this situation. I cannot call it "no risk" as you did have some unprotected genital contact.

With this kind of contact, you also have the risk of sexually transmitted infection. We would recommend using condoms in the kind of situation you describe and also that both of you are regularly (at least yearly) tested for infections.

Try not to feel irresponsible as these kinds of things happen to all of us at times. If you find yourself regularly wondering about pregnancy risk, you may want to think about using a method of birth control regularly. If you have further questions about this or other issues, feel free to bring them up [Smile] .
