if my boyfriend and i had a shower, and then made out on the couch for a bit. we were curious on how sex feels, so he wiped himself off just in case there was any precum on his penis. then he inserted his penis in me, just for a few seconds and took it out. is there any risk of pregnancy here? thanks in advance.

Wiping off the penis does nothing in regards of geting rid of pre-ejaculate, since pre-ejaculate comes from inside the penis.

So yes, it is very possible that you had a pregnancy risk here, bot to mention an even more substantial STI risk.

You can seek out Emergency Contraception if you do not want to become pregnant, as well- both you and your boyfriend will need to get a full STI screening done in about a month if you aren't already up to date on those, alright?

Also, in the future? Have some condoms and some condom-safe lubricant on hand next time so you can experiment safely [Smile]

if there was a bit of pre ejaculate on the penis, is there a high risk of pregnancy? or is it low?

and also, could you tell me about Emergency Contraceptions or direct me to a place what tells me about them? thanks again [Smile]

According to our handy chart: What's the Risk? you have had a moderate risk of pregnancy. It's difficult to ever say for sure what a risk is in the case of pre-ejaculate, but it's always safest to assume that sperm could have been present (and pre-ejaculate basically comes as part of arousal for men, so it's definitely safe to say that pre-ejaculte is always present)

Here's the link to our article on EC: Emergency Contraception

You should be able to obtain EC from your gynecologist, from a public health clinic, or from an ER if you can't get to either of the first two. [Smile]

thanks for all your help.

i looked at the page on EC, but im from Canada.
do they have EC pills in Canada?

and also, i have a VERY irregular period, like i havent had it for almost 6 months. I got it checked out by my doctor and she said it was fine. So my question is, for pregnancy tests, can you take them any time or do you have to wait for a certain time in your period cycle?

Yes they do have EC in Canada, and in Ontario at least, you don't need a prescription, you just ask the pharmacist for it.

As per pregnancy tests, they're accurate 10-14 days after your risk, or the first day of a missed period.

(hey, jayintheuk? Help is awesome, but please remember this area is for staff and volunteer replies only. Thanks!)

Amazed, I would simply call your local pharmacy and ask.
