Question: Fingering Pregnancy

 superxbats - Sun Sep 06, 2009 11:18 am

Hi, my bf fingered me.His pants were on and besides his hand being down my pants we were both fully clothed.I did not touch him at all and his hand was dry. Is pregnancy possible if he had masturbated 2 hours before hand and did not wash his hands? He touched many many things before touching me (as well as fingering me outside of my pants first which if there was anything on his hand would have wiped it off?).He said that he did not masturbate but I have an anxiety disorder and Im paranoid.I also began taking ZOloft and Xanex this month.Is it possible that antidepressants can be making my period late? I have sore breasts right now which is a common PMS symptom for me. Ive never heard of anyone becoming pregnant from dried sperm on a finger, everyone I asked says Im fine, but Id really appreciate your opinion.

User avatar Hello,
It would not be possible for you to become pregnant as a result of the activity you have reported here. Almost all women have times in their lives when their periods are irregular so I would not be alarmed.

Good luck with the anxiety issues.

I have one more question.If my bf fingered me and there was a small amount of sperm on his finger, then that night I got my period and was heavy and lasted normal duration can I be pregnant? Ive heard women can get pregnant any time in their cycle but I don't see how its possible to conceive the day before your period starts.Isnt there no egg to fertilize at that time? My cycles are very long, lasting 33-39 days average.

User avatar Hello,
Getting your period like that would be a sure indication that you are NOT pregnant.

Take care.
