tonight, me and my boyfriend were fooling around and he precummed on my pants.
he wasnt clothed.. and i had on sweatpants and a thong.
i am on my period, so i had a tanpon in...
i was wondering if it was possible for me to get pregnant?
i am on my 2nd day of my period, and we were 'dry' humping, so his penis was like right on my vagina, just with the barrier of clothing.
is it possible?
please tell me!.
he said it wasnt...
and i looked at the underside of my sweats, and it didnt look like it soaked through, i just have a case of paranoia.
please help!

No. Sperm are hardy things, but I assure you, clothing is a formidable adversary for them. Unless your underwear are completely and utterly soaked in semen, you don't have a risk.

thank you so much!
yeah, i dont even think they got wet, and like...
even if they did get wet, would it matter because i AM on my period, and i had a tampon in... wouldnt that consist of a barrier too?
i am sorry i am such like a paranoid person... i just tweek at little things... another thing...
yesterday, haha we were also fooling around, and like... i waited like it was probably a half hour or more... during this period i got a drink, and like, was wiping my hands on blankets ((kind of)) and such... and when i went to the bathroom, i adjusted my tampon string.
with the other hand that i didnt mess around with my boyfriend with... he ahd precummed...
but i think i went up his shorts with the hand i adjusted my string with....
point is... could i get pregnant from this?
wow i m paranoid...

another question while you are here... how much of a percentage is sperm in precum? is tre really that much? and like... is it very likely to get pregnant from precum if it ever came in contact with your vagina? i just freak out about tiny things... and i just want to get my facts straight.. what exactly is precum?

Nope - even if you did have sperm on your hand, it would be long dead after half an hour.

how much of a percentage is sperm in precum? is tre really that much? and like... is it very likely to get pregnant from precum if it ever came in contact with your vagina?

We can't give you an exact figure. Sometimes pre-ejaculate (a.k.a. "precum", the fluid secreted from the penis when a guy is aroused) contains sperm, sometimes it doesn't.

So the smart thing to do is treat it as a potential risk.

since you mentioned pre-ejaculate--is it true urinating before pre-cum kills any leftover sperm from the last ejaculation? my boyfriend peed and then took a shower before we fooled around. we were both unclothed, but neither of us thinks there was penetration - one of us would know, right? he did not ejaculate, but i am still worried about pre-cum since we were in such close contact. what type of pregnancy risk do you think this situation has?

Generally, yes, urinating before intercourse will clear the urethra of any residual sperm left there from the last ejaculation.

Your bigger risks in an instance like this (and actually, given your level of arousal and a partners penis size, sometimes you won't always know exactly when penetration occurs, but if there is direct contact, that's something of a nonissue anyway) are STI risks.

thanks. my partner and i should be okay on the STI issue, we're both virgins and i recently had a gyno check up. we can both be pretty paranoid about stuff like this, and the contact we had wasn't exactly planned so we were debating whether or not i should take emergency contraception. it happened within the past 12 hours, so there is still time for me to take it. i also noticed a small amount of blood in my discharge a few hours after it happened- i just finished my period a few days ago but i was wondering if this means anything. i guess my ultimate question is whether or not to take EC?

Just make sure HE has also had a checkup and STI screens, too. Just you getting them is only half the equation.

I'm guessing the spotting/bleeding is likely from lack of lubrication or arousal during the activity.

Per whether or not to take EC, like I said, I'd not consider what you're describing a very high risk, but if you can get it and you would feel more comfortable taking it, I'd suggest you do that.
