    Can I be pregnant with no penetration?

    I was making out with this guy and he rubbed his penis on my vagina, like 10 seconds.

    He didn't ejaculate, and I was having my period that time; not that strong but still having my period.

    I'm a virgin and that's the first time I did that, I'm really worried. PREGNANCY IS IMPOSSIBLE RIGHT?

    Don't worry, the chances of you being pregnant are remote (not impossible but the risk is tiny). If you were having your period, it is extremely unlikely that you would be fertile at that point in your cycle even if some semen managed to find its way inside.
    It is possible for semen to leak out before a man ejaculates so we always advise putting on a condom before any genital contact takes place. This also protects you against catching STIs such as warts or herpes which can be contracted  through genital contact.

    Stress can change your appetite. If things don't settle down and you are still feeling unhappy, you should really go and discuss it with a sympathic GP.

    You are unlikely to be pregnant as the risk is very low during your period and your partner did not ejaculate on your labia or entrance to your vagina. However, non ejaculation should not be used as a form of contraception as pre-come can contain sperm and these sperm can make their way up the vagina from the opening and fertilise an egg in the fallopian tube, if one is there.

    If you are deciding to be sexually active see your GP or go to a Family Planning Clinic to get good advice on your contraceptive options. Remember that contraception needs and safety from STIs are 2 different things.
