My boyfriend and I were in the shower, and I was performing oral sex on him. We kissed several times, and then about 30 minutes later, he performed oral sex on me. I didnt think anything of it because I thought that oral sex was pregnancy risk free. I was looking at the flow chart, and saw that there may be a LOW risk. He didnt ejaculate while I was giving him oral sex, and had not ejaculated since 2 days before the incedent, I am only worried about his pre-cum (which brings up the sperm in pre-cum after urinating thing that I have asked about before). I was wondering if because of these different factors, do I still have a good chance of pregnancy?

Sperm can only survive outside the body for 20 minutes or so, so based on what you've said here, I think you really don't need to worry about pregnancy.

However, unprotected oral sex does create a risk for STD transmission.

Would pre-cum in a person's mouth be considered "outside the body"?

http://www.scarleteen.com/reproduction/preg_risk_oral.html No, it would not but it sounds like your risk is pretty low.

Hon, you seem very concerned with pre-ejaculate but you don't seem to be taking safer sex precautions. Really, using things like condoms, dental dams, and gloves can do wonders for your peace of mind. Why not check out these articles and give some thought to how ready you are to be sexually active?

My boyfriend and I talked about it, and I told him I want to hold off from doing anything sexual for a while. PLUS, I told him when we do start fooling around again, I want him to use a condom. I am sick of worrying all the time! Thank you all for helping me see how foolish I was being for not doing this sooner.

With that done and over with, all I have to worry about is getting my period tomorrow. I am still very nervous about the oral sex = pregnancy risks.

Oh, just a question, did what logic girl said (about the precum being outside the body) apply to my situation?

While your mouth is still considered "inside" your body, it does not directly connect to the reproductive tract. I think you're not quite hearing us. Ook stated that by the flowchart, you have a very low risk of pregnancy. HOWEVER, you have to be careful about STDs; because you didn't use condoms, your STD risk is high.

So in short: preg? not likely at all? STDs/ yes, it could very well happen to you.
Make sure to insist on the use of condoms and safer sex supplies during ALL sexual acts. It's not just health, it's respect for your body and the choices you make. So insist on the rubbers.

By the way, nice to hear you're making healthy decisions for yourself.

Thank you! I am never going to practice unsafe methods again! I'm sick of being scared and holding my breath until I get my period (LIKE I AM NOW- even though everyone says my chances of pregnancy are slim)....

I havent gotten my period.... I was pretty sure that it was suppose to come today... but maybe it is suppose to come tomorrow. I am really scared, but I feel like a little crampy. Is it normal for a girl (who has had her period for 4 years) to have her cycle vary a day or two? What do you guys think of this?

definitely normal, especially if you figure by calendar dates. it's actually pretty unusual to have a 'perfect' 28-day cycle anyway. just try not to stress out about it, though I know it's hard, because it can delay your period.

So, youre still saying that I shouldnt worry about pregnancy- its an extremely tiny chance? (Im REALLY sorry for being so scared... I'm never doing this unprotected again)
