User :   hello
User :   is anyone there
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   yes, pl continue
User :   alright
User :   i had a question
User :   im going crazy about this
User :   see my gf and i dont have sex
User :   but we fool around
Doctor :   ok
User :   the farthest we've gone is rubbing against our genitals while naked
User :   which in my memory happened the last time around 5 days after she finished her period
User :   now she's 3 days late for her period
Doctor :   ok
User :   and she is worried and making me worried as well
User :   i never penetrated or even ejaculated on her vagina
Doctor :   do not worry
Doctor :   i will help you
User :   thanks
User :   the thing i might worry about is pre-cum having come close
User :   that's it
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Delaying the period
User :   and i dont remember this happening for a while
Doctor :   is because of many causes
User :   but she says it happened 2 weeks ago
User :   and btw
User :   she's a virgin
Doctor :  
If she has delayed periods and much worried about pregnancy
Doctor :   you can get a Urine pregnancy test done
User :   yes i know
User :   but what is the likelihood of this happening
Doctor :   Is it done?
User :   no she hasnt done it
User :   she has had cramps today
User :   and she had cramps 3 days ago but didnt have her period
User :   another thing
User :   she travelled on the day she was supposed to have her period
User :   and she was in a very stressful mindset
Doctor :   cramps might be due to periods also
Doctor :   before the onset of periods
User :   yes i know
User :   i am just wondering
User :   how likely is her getting pregnant with what i have told you
Doctor :   Very negligible
Doctor :   1% to 10%
User :   even while being a virgin?
Doctor :   Virginity is losing the hymen
Doctor :   It is about having penetrative sexual intercourse
User :   yes
Doctor :   If you have no penetrative intercourse
User :   she still has it
User :   she is always worried when we fool around about me getting my fingers too close
User :   so we are careful with that regard
Doctor :   Ok
User :   the only thing is what i have told you
User :   and her cycle is usually 28 days
Doctor :   If you are very sure about what you hve done
Doctor :   then it is near to 0%
User :   i am 100% sure, no penetration whatsoever
Doctor :   However to confirm that please get a Urine pregnancy test
User :   can it show anything at this point?
User :   and how confident can we be of the result
Doctor :   99%
User :   ok
Doctor :   I ask her to wait for next 3 days
Doctor :   look for signs of period
Doctor :   and then if nothing arrives
Doctor :   then get the UPT DONE
Doctor :   But my personal opinion is she should not be pregnant if you are right by your description
Doctor :   are you there
User :   yes
User :   i am sorry
Doctor :   Ok
User :   my description is accurate doctor
User :   i have a very vivid memory
User :   have you ever heard of similar cases where the patient ended up being pregnant
User :   are you there?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   No
Doctor :   There is no incident of pregnancy
Doctor :   in my experience
User :   so unless there is actual penetration
User :   it shouldnt happen
Doctor :   yes
User :   and does the fact that she is a virgin make it even less likely or not really
User :   ??
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :   The precum has some sperms in it
Doctor :   the sperms cannot swim or travel that far to cause a pregnancy
Doctor :   I have internet issues at my end
Doctor :   it is fluctualting
Doctor :   But now it is fine
Doctor :   You can continue
Doctor :   So my final answer is, the pregnancy happens only with penetrative intercourse
Doctor :   so it cannot happen in a virgin
Doctor :   If there is delayed period now, wait for 3 to 4 days
Doctor :   and see if there is a sign of pregnancy
Doctor :   sorry *period
Doctor :   if not go for Urine pregnancy test
Doctor :   Did you follow?
User :   yes
User :   i am with you
User :   i have spoken to her but she refuses to take a pregnancy test
User :   she says she has to wait
User :   i asked her if she still has cramps
User :   she says its coming and going
Doctor :   let her wait
Doctor :   Do not force her
User :   yes
User :   i will not force her
Doctor :   It is just to confirm that she is not pregnant
Doctor :   as such she is not
User :   yes i know
User :   i hope so...
User :   i never expected that while doing this there would be a risk
User :   i thought that it was only throuh penetration
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :   It is the same
User :   how do you mean
Doctor :   I did not understand yur question
Doctor :   how do you mean
User :   i mean
User :   what do you mean it is the same
Doctor :   the pregnancy happens when there is a penetrative sexual intercourse
User :   ok
User :   last question
User :   how long can she be delayed without actually being pregnant
User :   keeping in mind that she doesnt usually get delayed
User :   hello?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   Two minutes
User :   ok
Doctor :   Can you put the same question in simple words
Doctor :   because I am not understanding the right context you are asking me
User :   i mean
User :   how long is it possible for her to not have her period
User :   wihtout being pregnant
User :   and keeping in mind that usually she does get her period regularly
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   It is for one month
Doctor :   if she does not get a period for one more month
Doctor :   then you can see a doctor
User :   ok
