Can I get pregnant through a guy wearing shorts but me wearing nothing?
Hi, and thanks for your question No, we really wouldn’t see someone getting pregnant this way. Pregnacy happens when there is direct contact of the genitals like penetrative intercourse of penis in vagina, or direct contact with ejaculate (semen) and the vulva or vaginal opening. Even if there is contact between genitals but one partner is wearing clothing, pregnancy is not a risk. We... Read Full Answer
My boyfriend and I had sex (protected) with a condom and he withdrew before ejaculating on June 8. I went traveling to an international country. I was suppose to get my period a week ago (according to my period app) but I haven’t gotten it yet. I also ended up getting sick during that week and was on some meds. I just got back from my vacation. What’s the likely hood of me being pregnant? I don’t have any PMS or pregnancy symptoms. I just feel jet lagged and sick.

You have 13 weeks of protection from... Read Full Answer

Hello! My boyfriend and I want to start having sex soon, but the time that we want to have sex it would also be around the time I am ovulating. Now I know that increases the chance of getting pregnant (which we dont want) but do you still think it is okay to have sex (with a condom) during this time? Or would it be better after ovulation? Thank you,
Hi, Thanks for your question. Condoms are very effective at preventing pregnancy, whether you are ovulating or not. It’s important to make sure you are using condoms correctly, and to prevent the condom from breaking. See below for more information. If you do have a condom break, there are options for emergency contraception (such as Plan B aka “the morning after pill,” or emergency IUD... Read Full Answer
