Paranoid about getting pregnant... Watch

My boyfriend and I haven't slept together yet, but whenever we do other stuff I always get paranoid that I'm going to somehow get pregnant (e.g. sperm getting on my clothes). I know it's silly, but I can't help it. You can't get pregnant through stuff like dry humping, can you?

No, but if you're that paranoid perhaps you should consider becoming a nun?

Perhaps go on the pill? You seem to think you might do more sexual things in the future, so perhaps going on it now would be a good idea, and it would put your mind at rest

But don't have sex without a condom unless you know he's clean of STIs (and you are, obviously)

It reminds me of 40 year old virgin, where the teenagers are told to try dry humping.

I think everyone gets paranoid really. I am stupid and quite often me and my boyfriend get carried away, have sex and he just pulls out (sorry cant think of a nicer way of putting it!) at the last minute. So i am really risking it.
If you haven't had full blown intercorse then don't worry, it'd be so unlikely, that i couldn't even put odds on it.
If and when you do start having sex, you'll probs worry more. But most girls i know (And indeed their bf's) worry about pregnancy every month until the girls period comes.
I've found now that i know what my body is like and am pretty sure i'd notice. I am really aware though, and if my period is more than a week late then i take a test, or go to the G.P. I know a friend who had an abortion, and knowing the details of that has scared me.
From now on it's condoms all the time, or "it" doesn't come withing 5 foot of my Mary!

You know exactly how stupid that is, right!? Go on the pill!

It is silly but you can't help what you worry about. Go on the pill and, if you do have sex, use a condom. You'll be fine.

Injection.. implant... there's even a ring thing you put up there... that does the job too nowadays! Stays in for 3 weeks, then you take it out for your break.

Called NuvaRing, btw.

No pills involved!

I feel the same a lot of the time. I know the chances are very slim (I'm on the pill) but it doesn't stop me thinking that I could be that small percentage that is unlucky. :confused: I guess using a condom as well would put my mind at ease, but hey, it's my paranoia- I don't think that will ever go away.

If you get round to doing it, just make sure you take the proper precautions, the pill and condoms etc.

Nothing is ever 100% but the chances with proper protection are around 0.01% so u are just as likely to be run over by a bus when crossing the road for example but its not worth worring about.

Stay calm and just think u might even win the lottery around these odds
