So... I haven't actually had sex, but I heard that semen on a finger can cause pregnancy. My boyfriend fingered me, and even though it was a while after he ejaculated..I'm worried that some cum may have been left on his hands?
This happened 3 weeks ago. Since then, I have done 2 pregnancy tests which were both negative. However I think I did them too early. My period was due on the 28th, but on the 23rd I had bleeding for 5-6 days. It seemed like a normal period, but I was skeptical because it was early. Maybe it was implantation bleeding?
I went to a family planned clinic for another pregnancy test, but the nurse told me that it was impossible for me to be pregnant without having penetrative sex. I'm not sure though...maybe she was wrong? I explained to her, but she said it was too far for the sperm to travel from my vaginal opening to the uterus? I'm so worried and this pregnancy is all I think about. I feel like I have a lot of the symptoms. Heartburn, constipation, sore breats. Please give me advice. I feel so worried but if I go back to the clinic they might tell me to go away again

Manual sex (fingering) does not pose a pregnancy risk, as the "Pregnancy Scared?" article here at Scarleteen states. His hand would have to have been dripping with semen in order for there to be a risk. It seems like what you experienced was an early period; which happens often due to things like stress, changes in diet or lifestyle changes, or our body doing random things for no reason.

I doubt what you had was implantation bleeding, as that is usually light spotting that does not last for that long; and it would be highly unlikely to have implantation bleeding around the time of your period. It is very unlikely for a pregnant woman to have bleeding that lasted about as long as a normal period, came around the time of her expected period, and looked and felt like her period. If you took pregnancy tests 3 weeks after the incident, your results are accurate. Try not to worry!
