hi! i had dry sex with my boyfriend, being quite ignorant, my bf assured me that i won't get pregnant from it. but i just found out that it's possible if semen is ejaculated near the vagina, and it seemed quite true in my case. i was wearing a pantiliner at that time. after that i discovered small little hair-like stuff on my panty. are those sperms? Now i'm really scared cos i'm afraid to get pregnant.

Welcome to the boards!

Honey, first off, sperm are not visible to the naked eye. You would need a microscope to detect them, so it is unlikely that that is what you saw.

Secondly, you really need to be using protection if there is a chance of semen coming in contact with your genital area when you are having sexual contact with your boyfriend. He should be wearing a condom, and you should look into a secondary form of birth control such as the pill.

And honey, it might be worth you having a look around the main site and reading some of the article, particulary the sexual readiness checklist here:

In addition to what Entropie said, what were you and your boyfriend wearing at the time? The fact that you were wearing a panty-liner would reduce the risk of pregnancy to start with, as they are usually lined with plastic, and each layer of clothing that either of you were wearing in addition to that just reduces the risk even more. Was he wearing underpants? Were either or both of you wearing jeans, shorts or trousers? If all both of you were wearing was underpants, I'd take a pregnancy test just to be certain, or if semen came into direct contact with your vulva no matter what you were wearing, but if you were both fully clothed, then I think it highly unlikely that you would get pregnant from dry sex.
