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.

Anon's-- please read Alison's comment above. Any time there is a penis inside of a vagina (whether or not he knowingly ejaculated inside) and there is no form of contraception ie. birth control pills, an unbroken condom, etc. there IS a chance for pregnancy. That's not to say you are pregnant but the possibility cannot be excluded. If you are extremely concerned and it has been less than 72 hours since the incident, then you can purchase an over the counter drug known as Plan B http://planbonestep.com/ Please note that Plan B is NOT a contraceptive method, simply a med made available in the event that an accident occurred (such as the broken condom incident above). It is not meant to be used regularly, but as an emergency back-up.

If it has been over 72 hours, try to relax. There is nothing that can be done now but wait for your next period to come.

Good Luck to all of you.

Could it be possible for me to be pregnant? My boyfriend inserted the tip of his penis into my vagina but did not ejaculate. Are my chances of getting pregnant high? It's been almost a week and I've been feeling tired but I'm not sure if its because school just started again and I'm not used to getting up early. I'm really scared and not sure what to do. Help please?

Hi anonymous,

Yes, there is always a chance of pregnancy as noted above by Allison due to 'pre-cum'. The only way you would become pregnant during the course of anal sex is if the sperm got into your vagina. As noted above also, sperm can live up to 3-5 days inside a woman.

I hope this helps you with an answer. Are you on any birth control methods?

Anytime you have unprotected sex, there is a chance of pregnancy, regardless of timing during your cycle (sperm can live up to 3-5 days in your body, for one reason).

Only inserting the tip of the penis is not protection against pregnancy, as there can be the presence of pre-ejaculatory fluid or "pre-cum" from the moment a man's penis is erect. This "pre-cum" may contain semen.

It sounds like you engaged in something similar/close to the "Withdrawal Method", which is about 70-80% effective at preventing pregnancy. This is done by the man inserting his penis into the vagina (does not matter how far it goes in; does not matter how long his penis is inside), and then withdrawing his penis before ejaculating.

When are you expecting your next menstrual period?

Hi Anonymous,
What do you mean by "postday pills"? Did you take emergency contraception, or do you regularly take birth control pills? Please explain so we may be able to help you better.
