Honestly paranoid

So I just got off o my period, and I know that can mean I’m fertile for the next few days. I’ve never had sex before and I very rarely ever masturbate, but I just did and I’m getting very scared about getting pregnant. I didn’t use any kind of toy just my hands. I’m a teen and I get very scared about pregnancy even though it’s not really a possibility. Can I get pregnant from masturbating?

Hello, Anon. Thank you for writing.

Did you have sex education at school? If not, it's a good idea to study on your own so you know how sex and the human body works. You can read books on this or search our EmpowHER site. This will eliminate a lot of stress than the unknown can cause.

A woman cannot get pregnant unless she has unprotected sex (intercourse) with ejaculation that enters the vagina. The highest chance for this is during ovulation.

So, a pregnancy cannot occur from the scenario you describe.
