I’ve read on your website that I can’t possibly be pregnant from what my partner and I did, but I’m still really anxious and worried that I might be. Can you help me?

If you have learned that a particular behavior or situation cannot possibly cause pregnancy, such as dry sex, oral sex or touching of the genitals, and you are still concerned that you may be pregnant, then this may be a sign that you are not ready to be engaging in those particular sexual behaviors. Your feelings are a good indicator of what is right for you.

Sexual behaviors should be enjoyable, pleasurable and/or create intimacy with a partner. They shouldn’t cause anxiety around pregnancy if there is a low or no risk for pregnancy.

You might want to think about what sexual behaviors you are ready to engage in, as well as what you are comfortable doing with a partner, and then talk about it with your partner. If you do not feel comfortable discussing this with your partner, think about why that is and decide if you’re ready to be engaging in those particular sexual behaviors with your current partner.

You may also want to talk to a trusted adult in your life about the anxiety you are feeling surrounding pregnancy. Trusted adults, such as parents, guardians, teachers, coaches, older siblings, health care providers, other family members or clergy people from your faith can be great to talk to because they can give good advice all while having your best interests at heart.
