Hi, I'm 23 years old lady and I'm still a virgin. I have a bf and we've been together for more than 4 years. We never had 'real' penetration or sexual intercourse (saving it for the marriage). But today we made out and he only put his tip into me (only like half an inch to an inch) but did not cum in me. I am just a little concerned and went online to search for answers, and some people even mentioned that with what i've done, i'm actually not a virgin anymore! but no pain no blood flow happened.

Anyway, my question is, will i get pregnant this way? isit really true that if sperm was only near the vagina, i will get pregnant?

only supportive and real answers please.. i know i shud've used contraception, but it was our first time, and we didn't really planned for it to happen.

Hi Anon

We talk to guys here, too.

The odds of getting pregnant during her period are lower, but you should not have unprotected sex if you are not ready to raise a child. Discuss what method of birth control the two of you want to use. If she does not have a gynecologist or health care provider to talk to, go to the Planned Parenthood site at http://www.plannedparenthood.org/, find the closest clinic, and go in for education and birth control.

You don't need to be afraid. If she misses her period, wait a week and either go to the clinic or do a home pregnancy test. It isn't worth putting yourselves in this situation when it is so easy to use birth control. Be responsible for yourselves and each other. You'll feel much better that way.

Good luck and thanks for writing.

I've learned a lot about dipping the tip. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts.

Hi Anonymous,
Well, NO u can not get pregnant with swallowing sperm. The only chance of getting pregnant are when sperms enter your vaginal track. and as you said with a usage of a condom i really dont think if you can get pregnant as condoms have an apprx of 99% safety assurity, with the 1% left then yes there might be a possibilty but with an extremely low chance.

I dont really think you need to worry, i dnt think your pregnant. :)

Just the tip was inserted. Just for a minute. Just to see how it feels. Am I pregnant??

It depends on whether he ejaculated while the tip was in. To get pregnant, sperm has to enter your vaginal canal and swim up to the egg.

If he did not ejaculate, you are likely not pregnant. This would be a good time to visit Planned Parenthood or another health care provider to get some education about sex and decide on a method of birth control for the future. Then you won't have to worry about pregnancy.
