On the 10th of July, I had dry sex naked and my partner came on me and it dripped down the sides of my vagina and near my hole. I quickly sprang up and went to the bathroom to wipe it off. I'm still a virgin so my partner told me that even though the *** was near my hole, i probably wouldn't get pregnant and he's trying to reassure me that that sperm would have needed to ejaculated inside my vagina so that it would be close enough to swim to an egg for me to get pregnant. I was panicking the next 24 hours when my best friend told me to take a plan B pill. She said that it would lessen my chances of getting pregnant but that it doesn't 100% guarantee I wouldnt get pregnant so to just hope and pray to get my period in the next 10 days since my last period was on the 20th of last month. From what I've been reading on other health posts, the pill was totally unnecessary to take and I am definitely not pregnant. Is this true? Should I worry? I've also read that because I took the pill even though I didn't have to, my next few periods should be off. If I don't have my period 7 days after my normal period day should I take a pregnancy test? PLEASE HELP!

Hi Lex1776, and welcome to Scarleteen.

I'm a little confused by what you're describing here; we don't generally use "dry sex" to describe sexual activity that happens when people are both naked. Direct genital contact does pose a pregnancy risk.

Since you did take Plan B, your chances of becoming pregnant are quite low, but the way to know for sure will be to go ahead and take a pregnancy test.

This article will give you a better idea of what to expect after taking Plan B: Emergency Contraception (Plan B or the Morning-After-Pill) It does often impact the menstrual cycle, yes. That's one reason why we suggest anyone who's taken Plan B go ahead and take a pregnancy test, as their periods may not show up when expected.

Also, for future reference you can get a sense of what is and isn't a risk by looking at this article: Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?

I do want to note that if you and your boyfriend aren't up to date on your STI testing, that's something to look into as well, as direct genital contact also poses a risk of transmitting any infections either of you may have.

The reason why I say it's dry sex is because he never actually entered inside of me. It was basically just a lot of thrusting but I didn't actually feel his penis touch my vagina during the whole process.

Dry sex specifically refers to sex where at least one person is wearing clothes.

Are you and your boyfriend current on your STI testing?
