Hello all, I have just one question. As with lots of other people on this website, I am a tad worried.

Last week my boyfriend and I were in our swimsuits and we dry humped. I was also wearing a panty liner because my period was due at any day then. My period came later that week, (six days late) and I have been bleeding heavily for four days, but today it is gone as far as I know.

Of course, as you can probably tell by now I am worried that I could be pregnant. He assures me that nothing came out and that I have nothing to worry about but I still am. Is there any chance at all that I could be pregnant if I happened to ovulate on the first day of my period and the sperm was still there? I did not feel anything, I am a virgin and we did not have sex. But still...? [Frown]

I have read the risks on the pregnancy risk page on this site but I am hoping my situation is different...

Thank you all for your help.

While women's fertility cycles vary, you really can't ovulate on the first day of your period. Hormonally, two very different things need to be going to to make each of those things happen: they can't both happen at once.

Regardless, you had two suits and a liner between you. Unless your boyfriend's sperm have superpowers, they can't get from his penis into your vagina through all that, since his semen couldn't, either.

I do just want to clear something up for future reference, though, which is that men don't tend to feel pre-ejaculate. So, rather than deciding how to manage risks based on what a guy says he feels, you want to base them on where you may or may not have risks. This, for instance, is not a scenario where I see any risks of STIs or pregnancy. However, had there been no clothing when you two were doing this, those risks would exist, whether or not he or you felt anything. make sense?
