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.

Dear Anon,

The odds of your girlfriend getting pregnant this way are slim to none. However, because we don't know if there was any semen involved or how close to the inside of her vagina you got then we have to assume that although extremely rare, it is possible. 

Please use protection next time and try not to stress out over this incident.

Hi uniquenezz,

There is always the chance of pregnancy once the penis has entered the vagina (even if it is just the tip).

As far as your second question, I think that if you ask 10 different people you will get 10 different responses but here is my take on it...
A virgin is defined as a person who has never had sexual interaction. It is meant to define purity and absence of sex. To some people, this means you are a virgin if your hymen has not been broken, to others it means that you have never had a penis inserted into your vaginal or anal regions. So, I would say that there is no black and white answer to this question because although you have not had full penetration, you have had a penis inside you and have had some sort of sexual experience. But then again, if you see a doctor, he may consider you a virgin if your hymen is intact. So, do you see what I mean? It's difficult to say and I'm sorry that I cannot give you a straight answer.

Your hymen may have also been broken riding a bike or exercising-- and this does not mean that you are not a virgin because it had absolutely nothing to do with sex. Hope this helps a bit. Tough question, but good question :-)

It is possible but highly unlikely. Next time perhaps you should take more care even if you do not intend to have actual penetration. Use a condom just to be sure.

Yes it is possible to get pregnant because his cum went inside you and sperm can easily find their way to the womb. If you have had your period then there is even more chance of pregnancy. I have experienced this myself and was in the same position and I became pregnant. If you do become pregnant, congratulations!!! xx

Hi i'm a 15 year old girl and me and my boyfriend were fooling around one day. He was rubbing his penis on my vagina and near the opening, he didn't ejaculate near or on my vagina but he did have pre-ejaculation while he was rubbing his penis on my vagina. I'm still a virgin although i think i do not have a hymen. I'm really scared and i was wondering if i could be pregnant? please reply ASAP.

Can you explain what you mean by "he did have pre- ejaculation"? I think this term is misused, and can be confusing.

Here are the two possibilities:
1. Anytime a man's penis becomes erect, there is something called "pre-cum" or pre-ejaculatory fluid on the tip of his penis, just from the act of his erection. This fluid is just a few drops, and may or may not contain sperm. You may not even notice this pre-ejaculatory fluid.
2. Any fluid that comes out of the man's penis from sexual excitement is called ejaculatory fluid. It does not matter the quantity, and sometimes a man can stop the climax somewhat and hold off the ejaculation. This fluid does contain sperm.

Can you see why I am asking for clarification? It sounds like your boyfriend got excited and ejaculated a little bit, so what you bare referring to as pre-ejaculatory fluid is incorrect.

It is possible, but not likely, to become pregnant from a penis having semen come out near a vagina; it does not have to be inside. However, it really does depend on how much fluid you are referring to...literally a drop or two? Was his penis near your vagina, or actually touching it with a substantial amount of fluid?

My girl and I were messing around a bit, we now use condoms though I hate them. one of her girlfriends showed up during our time. Her girlfriend said it was ok for her to drink my sperm from inside the condom. I thought that was ok and kinda hot.. my girl is bisexual cool too, but when the friend gave her oral with the sperm in her mouth I got worried.. they told me it dies when it gets in saliva. is that true or should I be worried she can get pregnant. and what about the friend, they were doing alot of touching after, waht if some on her hands got in her. im freakin out that i may have impregnated 2 girls with my sperm

Hi, I've been reading about these kinds of stuff for weeks now and I am about to go crazy for I still don't have my period - I am now 3 days late. My boyfriend and I had sex weeks ago, and we had protected sex. We were so cautious that every time he felt like cumming, he pulled out (yes, even with the condom on). We were being very careful that way...

But this late period thing is really making me paranoid. Because I remember we had intercourse more than once - same day, same time, etc. Straight forwardly, we had intercourse multiple times consecutively on the same bed.

I'm just worried about his penis being soaked inside the condom with his own semen. Because every time he placed a new condom on, he didn't wash it. That would be fine though, but the thing is, he accidentally placed the 2nd try of condom on inside out. It was placed the wrong way. So we flipped it and put it correctly. What I'm worried about is that when we flipped it inside out, the tip that touched his "unwashed penis" was then the side that went inside my vagina. There was no visible semen on it and we're sure, cause we would've seen it. I'm wondering if that can get me pregnant?

Someone please help me, I'm really really worried...
