I have some question that everyone just happens to have a different answer. Can sperm go through clothes? Some say yes others say no. As for me, I was taught that the man actually needs to get his penis inside a woman's vagina (have direct contact) in order to sperm to go in and find an egg. I need an official answer from someone that actually went to medical school.
Twice this month my friend and I got a little too close to each other. I was wearing pajamas ( long pants and underwear) he was wearing his briefs. Things got a little out of hand, but we still kept our clothes on. He did rub himself against me ( but high on my front thighs, almost near). This happened twice this moth (two weeks in between). The first time he was wet ( i was too -- but I did change my underwear after), the second time he wasn't (the second time I was wearing a pantyliner). Im currently not on birth control. I did take Nextchoice the first time (the day after it happened), Plan B the second time (almost near 72 hrs of when it happened). I know some may say this was unnecessary, but better safe than sorry
I took Plan B two days before my period ( but my period is irregular like most women), is there still a chance that I can get my period, or will the high amount of levonorgestrel (more like double the amount due to Next Choice) stop it from coming at the prospective time?
But I just need to know, is there a possibility that I can still be pregnant even if we didnt have direct contact and I took the precautions listed above?
I have to say I'm concerned...

The chances of you being pregnant are practically non-existent. I know of no documented case where pregnancy occurred when there were clothes in the way. Penetration and insertion of sperm inside the vagina is necessary.
Having taken plan B you pretty well assure that even this miraculous conception could not happen. But, it can affect your period so don't let that worry you. It can even take a few months for things to get back to normal following this high dose of hormone.
I would recommend finding another method of birth control to save you this grief.
