I've read through "Pregnancy Scared?" and the article on pregnancy tests. I still have a few questions. On "Pregnancy Scared?" it says "...dry sex, where everyone had clothes on and no one ejaculated on or very near anyone else's vulva".

Is this referring to two people who are each fully dressed? Or is one layer of boxers/underwear for each person okay?

Does "on or very near" mean skin-to-skin and ejaculate-to-vulva? Is through three layers of clothing still "on or very near" if the genitals were near each other?

What if both people each had on a layer of cotton underwear-and one was wearing cotton pajama bottoms-each person was wet and there was pre-ejaculate? Would this be under the no risk or low risk category?

Hi KEducate2,

If one or both people have clothing on, there is no risk. Ejaculate would need to come into contact with a bare vulva in order for there to be risk. Does that help make it clearer? [Smile]

Yes, thank you.

With regard to pregnancy tests, I understand from your site that the best time to take one is at least 14 days after a risk (or 21 days for a more accurate result). Is there a maximum time past a risk that pregnancy tests will remain accurate? (Or will the tests continually give the "Pregnant" result all the way up to delivery?)

A pregnancy test will give a positive result at any time during a pregnancy. There's no maximum time past a risk to take a test.
