Posted on Sat, 16 May 2015
Question: Please let me know with the right answer as I do not know more information in the field of Medical.
I had sex with my girlfriend with clothes on and both used the bath towel to cover our body. we both have ejaculated the sperm but in nude I have not touched her vagina with my penis. There was not act of penetration. Apart from this under the shower with cold water pouring down I have touched her vagina with my fingers. I think the sperm might have gone through the clothes.

The matter to bother here is she is having a missed period. Her period date is 15th of every month and I had sex with her on 1st of April this month. I think it was her ovulation time. Now even though it's 23rd she is not having periods. We both are worried.

After having sex on 1st of April she had to travel to a new place with a journey of 12 hours and it was new food and she was also suffering from cold as she used to stay in the AC. Even her food routine changed and also the atmosphere. she was back to her normal routine from 17th of this month. Even though being to the normal routine for 7 days ( including 17th and 23rd) she is not yet having periods.

Please let us know how we need to proceed further, your valuable answer is highly appreciated.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
The chances of getting pregnant by the play you have mentioned are very remote. However, since she missed her periods, so we need to evaluate her for this remote chance also.
You are right, that changes in atmosphere and routine or intake of any drugs can also affect the periods.
So, the best way out in such situation is to get her tested. Get her a urine pregnancy test kit. The test she can her self perform with the first morning sample after 10 days of missing the periods. If the test is negative, she is not pregnant, and she would need evaluation for other causes of delay in her periods like Thyroid disorders, Polycystic Ovarian Disease.
So, today is the 8th day of her missed periods. You should wait for 2 more days and if she doesn't get her periods, get tested on the 10th day to be sure.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Following are your answers:
1. Chances are almost nil practically. Theoretically, chances are there if sperm manages through fingers to reach the ovum during vaginal contact with fingers.

2. Pregnancy can be aborted with the medicines at this stage. Your doctor will guide you for that, in case she is found to be pregnant.

3. No definitive time. Varies from person to person.

4. No, pregnancy can't be caused by this way.

If you have any further query, please ask me.
