Can You Actually Get Pregnant From Dry Humping?

If you’re sexually active, there’s probably always the fear in the back of your mind that you might get pregnant even if you’re using protection. After all, there’s no method of birth control that’s 100 percent effective. Even if you’re not actually having sex, you might be wondering whether you could get pregnant through other ways. You might be concerned about fingering, blowjobs, and have even dry sexHere’s the deal about whether you can get pregnant from dry humping.

Can you actually get pregnant from dry humping? It’s stressing me out.

I can understand why you might be stressing about becoming pregnant even if you haven’t put the P in the V. You’ve probably heard enough stories and you don’t want to be the person who somehow ends up pregnant. Before we get right into it, I want to clear up what you mean by “dry humping.” There are slightly different forms. Most consider dry humping as doing the moves of sex without actually putting a penis in a vagina. Some might do it naked, but some might wear clothes. And some peeps might wear all their clothes while others just would wear their underwear.

Consider where you and your partner fall. The answer might change slightly depending on the situation. With that in mind, know that the chances of getting pregnant through dry humping, aren’t likely but there’s a very small percentage it could happen.

How?

First, think about whether bae is actually thrusting “in” or around the vagina. Some people might consider dry humping where bae puts just the tip or half of his penis in the vagina while wearing clothes. If he ejaculates, around the area, there is a chance you could get pregnant. The semen could go through the clothes and into you vag, and hello preggers. It’s not likely but I want you to be aware of even the tiniest percent chance of it happening.

What’s more, there’s still a slim chance that you could get pregnant if bae doesn’t thrust around the vagina. If he ejaculates while you’re going through the motions, there’s that teeny tiny possibility of pregnancy. The fewer clothes you and bae wear can increase the odds. Semen can also survive outside of the body for a bit so you want to remember that fact.

How can I be safe?

To stay safe, you will want to ensure there are some layers between bae’s penis and your vagina. If bae is about to ejaculate, you should pull apart. But, know that there’s pre-ejaculate so even if he moves away there could already be some semen that has come out. If you’re wearing clothes, they will at least offer more protection than being naked.

I know it might sound a bit intense, but you might want to consider protection if you want to stay as safe as possible. You might be on the Pill for other things (skin, cramps, PMS, etc). That will cut down your small chance of getting pregnant here. If you’re not on birth control pills, and don’t want to consider them, you might want to consider having bae wear a condom for extra protection. When it comes to avoiding getting pregnant, you can never be too safe, right?
