Can Foreplay Get You Pregnant?

Dear Sugar
My boyfriend and I are considering having sex together, but I am hyper-sensitive about getting pregnant. Right now, we've just been into heavy petting. Last night, he wet his finger with his mouth and then wet his penis with those fingers. He then used those same fingers in me. Is the semen that is on his fingers strong enough to get me pregnant?

Dear Careless Chrissy
The answer is maybe. Semen contains sperm and if those bad boys can swim hard and fast enough and you are ovulating, then there is a small risk that you could get pregnant. Check your calendar and see where you are in your menstrual cycle. If you aren't anywhere near days 14-18, then you should be OK. If you are however in that window currently, it's worth taking a pregnancy test.

Let this be a warning to you both. If you are going to play with fire, there's always the chance that you might get burned. Please use protection if you plan on being naked together and testing uncharted waters. Not only will it be more pleasurable for both of you when you can relax and not be worried about pregnancy and disease, but you'll have better orgasms knowing that you are safe! Talk to your boyfriend about this, ok... it's always better to be safe than sorry.

I agree, Kylie! i would have come here to ask the same thing, and i think people should be more supportive. She came here for help, not to be laughed at .

Im not trying to get a kick out of anything, this was a genuine question. Me and my boyfriend are ok and I am not pregnant. I was new to it all and was worried. But hey, its ok. I like people to make a joke out of it. At least I know where NOT to go for advice now. Thanks for the people who did give support. That did really help. I just feel that there is not enough information out there about sex. And some people are very shy about asking things. It dont normally help when we have people like you making a joke out of it. So some advice, dont joke about peoples problems. It dont encourage them to come to you for advice in the further future. Thanks anyway. Bye

I feel that these 'problems' are a little graphic,sometimes,and could easily be someone getting a kick out of this,rather than a genuine problem

for future reference, go on the birth control pill if you're planning on having unwrapped sex. and yeah, listen to sugar and figure out when this happend on your mentstrual cycle. there's a period before ovulation that you can have sex bc the eggs haven't been released to be fertlised. here's somethign off a site: Calculation of fertile period: The shortest cycle minus 18 days=1st day of fertile period. The longest cycle minus 10 days= last day of fertile period. Ex: if a women's menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle [26days] minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle [31days] minus 10days=21st day. the fertile period is usually the time when you can get pregnant/ovulating. i wouldn't recommend this to anyone though bc it's still a very risky form of contraception. also, you can always see the doctor for the morning after pill or take a pregnancy test if you're so worried. but honestly, i doubt there could've been that much precum on his wee wee to impregnate you. but also, better safe than sorry {:O
