Can I be pregnant if my boyfriend didn't cum in me?

today we were alone in a room and started kissing, undressing and finally we had sex, but he never went too deep in me, I was scared. when he was about to cum he pulled himself out and came over me. can I get pregnant than?

Possibly, if you're ovulating.

It doesn't matter how deep he goes inside. You have to remember that sperm have specifically evolved to be aggressive swimmers and to locate the target (egg) at all costs in order to perpetuate the species ( They can actually swim through even a little river of sweat outside your body, so swimming an extra inch or two inside you is nothing. Also, many guys involuntarily ejaculate a little semen before orgasm (without even noticing), so pulling out and not going in deeply have to be the SILLIEST (as in absolutely least effective) birth control methods on record.

You've got to use protection, not only for the sake of pregnancy prevention, but also for std protection. Since you didn't mention it---and you think not going in deeply or pulling out are even good ideas---I'm guessing that you didn't.

Honestly, the lack of understanding you demonstrated tells me you're too young to be doing what you're doing in the first place. I'd say stop and talk to your parents.

My guess is you're not going to do that so... If you are going to be sexually active then you MUST have a more sophisticated understanding of birth control; that's not optional! You can't be irresponsible or ignorant about this. Educate yourself:

I don't mean to come down on you; I'm trying to get you to understand that this is extremely serious and it sounds like you don't know what you're doing and are not being smart about something that is potentially life-altering.

To deal with your current mishap, if you want, you could look into emergency contraception ASAP. It's not an abortion pill, so if you're already pregnant it will have no effect. If there are microscopic sperm still swimming around on the way to the target, this could help:

(Oh, and don't buy into the "douche afterwards" myth. That just makes things easier for any sperm that aren't washed out.)

umm I don't mean to brag but that is slightly incorrect but very close and in some cases it is true but if he did that out side of you and you had a shower or not much came out of him you will not get pregnant unless of course he did cum any where inside of you but if he did it out side like gravity goes 'what goes up must come down' is also slighlt wrong if you were lying down and he was on top and cum on you the sperm drizzles down not up but I woulden't worry to much about it though if what your saying is true if you dissagree with both mine and skyDancers methods I think you should go get checked out by a docter and see rather you are pregnant or not hope this information helps

I stand by what I said as correct. I knew from a very young age that I never wanted to be a mother, so I studied reproductive health in minute detail--with the help of my Mom who is a medical professional--so I could avoid pregnancy at all cost when I became sexually active in my 20s. Possible and probable are not the same thing; perhaps I could have emphasized that, but I didn't think of it at the time. In any case I'm sure we agree on the basics: that protection should be used. :-)
i agree
Unquestionably, sperm can overcome gravity and swim uphill. When potential parents have a preference for a boy or a girl, some of the low tech methods for gender selection includes physical positions of the mom based on the the idea that male sperm swims faster but dies off quicker while slower swimming females last a lot longer. By using gravity, the odds of having a boy or a girl can be improved.

true but like I said the saying 'what goes up must come down' is wrong
only in some cases it is true but not common
