last week, me and my boyfriend were fooling around, i was sitting on top of him with my thong and him with briefs. i orgasmed while i was on top of him (both of us still wearing our underwear).

i don't think there was any direct contact between my genitals and his, but now my period is 8 days late and i am getting scared that i could be pregnant.

i have been stressed out this month so stress could be a factor in my late period, but..

is there a possibility that i'm pregnant?

Honestly, I dont beleive there is much of a risk that you were exposed to. If you had a thong on, and he breifs, if he never came, then no. Although, it is still unknown if pre-semenal fluid contains sperm, but if there was no contact with both your genitals, or direct contact to your vagina, no. Dont stress! Stress can delay periods and even make you miss one! Just try and relax, youll be fine [Smile]

Just to be clear, it's not unknown that pre-ejaculate can contain sperm. It is fully known by the medical community that it can. Heck, even if the medical community didn't know it, perfect-withdrawal babies sitting here plain as day like myself sure would. As I mentioned in reference to something else a month or so ago, we gave an abortion to a client at the clinic some time ago who became pregnant via "dry" sex with no known fluid transfer who also had an intact hymen. It happens now and then. It is simply that sometimes it will and sometimes it will not, and while the timing and fertility factors may be right for the sperm present to create a pregnancy in some people, that may not be the case with others.

As explained in our pregnancy risk assessment, this kind of situation may create a low to moderate pregnancy risk IF fluids soaked through your undergarments.

Since your period is late, even if it's just to manage your own stress, it sounds like taking a pregnancy test would be a good idea. It's very hard not to stress out, obviously, when you think you may have become pregnant and do not want to be. That test should be the right thing.
