hi, I have an very important question, and I really need advice ASAP. I have a boyfriend, we have not had sex, but he has been close to going inside me. Me and my family are close and me and my father were talking and said that I could get pregtant, because he rubs his penis around my area. I'm not dumb, but I just need more evdience, he precums alot.I'm on birth control but for acne and I don't take it at the same time every day. Ihave random mood swings and feel sick alot. Maybe I just crazy and I hope I'm.

Any direct gential contact does indeed put you at both a pregnancy and an STD/STI risk.

If you are presently taking oral contraceptives, however, and take them as directed, on time every day, your pregancy risk is extraordinarily small. If you do not take them as directed daily or on schedule, you do have a sizeable risk. The pill is only effective as birth control when taken correctly.

So, I'd suggest simply taking a pregnancy test.

I'd also suggest if you have not already that you and your partner start having annual sexual healthcare, including STD and STI screens, because you have had risks there -- the pill doesn't offer any protection from STIs. In addition, do consider practicing sex more safely on that level: Safe, Sound & Sexy A Safer Sex How-To.
