Alright, I've had a minimal--if any--risk. My boyfriend and I were in our undergarments, and there's a chance his penis may have been exposed, and there's a slight chance he came in contact with my (lower) vulva. He hasn't ejaculated since Wednesday, and is 95% sure his anatomy stayed within his clothing. I don't think this situation merits EC, but I want to be 100000% sure. Help?


(Edit: I would really appreciate a fast answer--my boyfriend's mother is very understanding and could possibly provide me with EC if necessary. Thanks in advance [Smile] )

If you two didn't have the kind of direct, unprotected genital contact where it was more than a maybe, I personally don't see cause for concern here per pregnancy.

WHEW! Thanks so much for a fast reply [Smile] We're going to have to invest in some condoms-this has been a little nerve wracking for us both [Razz]

From the boyfriend: THANK YOU times a billion to the billionth power!!!!!!

(Edit: And happy St. Valentine's Day! [Razz] )

You're welcome, both of you. [Smile]

And you can either invest in condoms yourself or walk into ANY walk-in clinic in the Bay Area: no shortage of freebies there. So, if money is a factor, don't let that stop you.

Thanks Heather [Big Grin] And no, money is luckily not a factor; we can both fork out the eight bucks for some rubbers [Razz] It's a fair price for peace of mind.

One last nagging thought:
I don't track my fertility, but judging by recent discharge and calendar dates I assume I'm ovulating, or at least around that time. That doesn't change the risk, does it?
