…My stomach hurts, I’m hungry a lot and I have sore breasts. I’m extremely stressed. Am I pregnant?
If semen was on your partner hands and could’ve come into contact with the vagina, pregnancy could be a possibility. Risk of pregnancy is less likely this way, but can occur. Any time semen comes near the opening of the vagina, sperm can move into the vagina and cause a pregnancy.
When someone is using their hands or fingers to sexually stimulate someone, it’s very important to emphasize hygiene as well. It’s important to make sure you and your partner are washing your hands with an unscented soap before sexual stimulation begins. If you wash your hands before touching each other, you can wash away any sexual fluids that may have been present before- which can eliminate risk of STI transmission or pregnancy.
Someone’s period can actually fluctuate based on what’s going on in their life. This means that stress, sickness, change in physical activity, or even worrying about being pregnant can make a period act differently.
The only way to know for sure it you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. If you take a pregnancy test 14 days after unprotected sex, you will receive an accurate result.
