Last night me and my bf got into the moment and i started grinding on him, he ejaculated and pulled me down onto him really hard... Could sperm travel through his boxers and gym shorts then my cotton panties and yoga shorts and cause pregnancy? When we were done i couldnt tell if he soaked through his shorts or not, my yoga shorts felt damp but i couldnt tell if it was from being hot and sweating or from my own wetness. I'm really worried, i'm a virgin and this is the closest i've ever come to sex, I'm petrified i might get pregnant. My period is due Aug 16, according to my calendar I'm not fertile or ovulating but idk if it's right. What are my chances of pregnancy? Should I go get the morning after oil?

Hi Mell_Bell613532 and welcome to Scarleteen,

Have you taken a look through this guide to what is and isn't a pregnancy risk?

Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?

So even though he ejaculated its still considered dry, safe sex?

because his semen may have soaked through his gym shorts, im not sure if it got on me or not bc my shorts were black, and damp from being hot and my own wetness, wouldnt that provide the enviroment for the sperm to live and get through?

What does the article say about sexual activity when people are wearing clothes?

No risk, unless only one partner is wearing a very thin garment that allows for some direct genital contact, like a thong, or there is accidental fluid contact. In those cases, there may be low risk.
Since he may have soaked through a little and my shorts were damp does that mean there was fluid contact?

No, fluid contact is when bare genitals come into contact or fluid from one person's genitals came into contact with the other person's bare genitals.

If there was a risk with multiple layers of clothes, we would have said so. [Smile]

I also wanted to address something else you said. you said that this is the closest you've come to sex. I'm thinking that you meant intercourse.

The reality though is that it's all sex; there is a wide variety of sexual activities.

Take a look:

Thank you so much, you have really put my mind at ease! I was freaking out all night, having nightmares, i hardly slept but now i can take a deep breath of relief! I can definitely say I'll be a lot more careful and that I KNOW im not ready for intercourse. Ad you helped me understand it a lot more instead of just giving me an answer you helped me see it for myself [Smile]

You're welcome.

And yes, we definitely try to help people learn the answers for themselves so they have the tools they need to make decisions in the future.

I'm glad this was helpful to you.
