So, here's the story:

My boyfriend and I were messing around last week. He was in only his boxers and I was wearing some extremely short shorts. I was lying on top of him, and he was grinding up against me. Things got kind of intense and he ejaculated. I think some of the fluid got on my thighs under the shorts.
I read that if a guy comes and the semen spills out near the opening of the vagina, the girl can get pregnant.

I've never had sex before, and this is really scary. Is there any chance I could get pregnant from this encounter and, if so, how soon can I test for pregnancy?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, it does sound like you have had a pregnancy risk. If semen got on your vulva, and it sounds like it did, you've had one.

Has it been 5 days or less since this happened? If so, you can still get emergency contraception, it's just that it works best within 3 days. See this page for more: Emergency Contraception .

You need to wait till 10-14 days after the event occurs to take a pregnancy test, or the first day of a missed period, so you can't take one yet.

In the future, whenever something like this is going on, there should be a condom on that penis so that you don't have to worry about this sort of thing. Check out these pages for more:
