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.

Anony, that is very dangerous!
Letting him get that close to you - less than a half an inch from your beauty - that can get you pregnant.
Even worse, that can make you crave him even more.
If you keep doing this kind of thing with him, you want to grab him and "guide" him in.
You may SAY you want to remain a virgin, but your actions - your moaning and moving to accomodate him manhood - tell him otherwise.
Sooner or later, you're going to give in and let him go in and explode into you.
I wouldn't be giving him BJs or letting him give you oral, either.
Those kind of things only heighten sexual interest and make you feel sexier.
Soon, you'll be BEGGING him to enter you!

Pull out (literally) before you lose more than your virginity!

Hi uniquenezz, thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, Yes you can get pregnant with only the tip going inside. Even if your boyfriend did not ejaculate inside you (or at all), pre-ejaculation may happen and chances are neither one of you may be aware of it.

Sperm has the innate capability of traveling into the vaginal canal all the way through to your reproductive system, hence becoming pregnant. Although I would say that getting pregnant this way is much less common than having sex the traditional way, it can happen.

Good Luck to you :-)

hey thnx for your reply.

my bf mentioned he's quite sure he didn't have any pre-ejaculation, so are there still any chances of me getting pregnant? anyway, I might just get a test to be sure. We're both not ready to be parents yet unfortunately..

also, just out of curiosity, am i still considered a virgin after what's happened?

thnx for not being judgmental by the way.

Your BF is not going to be the one carrying a baby for over 9 months, hurt his reputation if you live in small town and have to decide ...a very hard choice about if you will keep it..adopt it out all are very hard decisions..All are yours alone to make no matter who else is there to help..it comes down to you alone.
He can wear condom and use spermicide if you are against the pill...but get some kind of birth control NOW!
I find it sad that this day and age teenagers still know so little about their bodies ....why are we so against sex education in high school if handled professionally and just presents the facts?
BTW, there are religions out there that do not believe in intercourse even after the marriage. They feel if God would like you to get pregnant that spillage over from foreplay /after play will find it's way into the woman....and yes they have had children this way.
Just amazes me how so very different people are....beliefs etc.

did you get pregnant because of what happened?

Hate to say this but as long as he aroused...he has pre -ejaculation along with possibility of it having sperm in it. So yes, you could be pregnant from just that experience.
You are too young to remember Ann Landers..she and her sister wrote columns in newspapers to help women from house cleaning to sexual topics. One was...about a young woman who got pregnant with out having intercourse and debate if she could get pregnant...as she did.
Many did not believe her. Ann Landers stood up for her and gave scientific proof it was possible. Made me be extremely careful!!
There are even religious groups that believe, you cannot have intercourse ever in your marriage. That if God wills it you will get pregnant from just his penis being near opening of vaginal canal.
Since you would like to stay a virgin till your marriage night, i would suggest either you get married soon! Or better stop going that far because you many break that vow to yourself. And how will that affect you?
