Dry humping often always occurs prior to being in a sexual relationship with someone. The two of you may be making out, and dry humping is a way to get rid of the urge without actually having full-blown intercourse.

And dry humping is often much safer because it’s really difficult to get pregnant this way.

How Does Pregnancy Occur?

Pregnancy occurs when the male’s sperm enters into the vaginal canal, makes its way up through to the cervix and attaches to the woman’s egg to fertilize it. A natural process, women will need to be fertile at the time of conception, and a woman needs to be ovulating.

Ovulation occurs, under normal circumstances, two weeks prior to your period.

If a woman is not ovulating, she cannot get pregnant. But sperm is resilient, and under the right conditions, it can live inside of a woman’s body for five days. While the chances of pregnancy go down with each day that passes, you may still get pregnant if ovulation begins within these five days.

Can You Get Pregnant from Dry Humping?

Sperm needs to enter the vaginal canal for pregnancy to occur, so in most cases, dry humping will not be an issue. But there are two different types of dry humping: with clothes on and without clothes on.

Dry Humping With Clothes On

If you’re dry humping with clothes on, it’s virtually impossible to get pregnant. The following is an example of a common occurrence:

  • A male, with his jeans on, will dry hump a female.
  • The female may have her panties on, panties off or may be wearing other bottoms.
  • The male ejaculates in his pants, wetting the exterior in some cases.

In this scenario, many women are nervous because the male’s pants are wet. He ejaculated and the wetness on his pants may have come in contact with the vagina. Even under this circumstance, pregnancy is not likely to occur.

Sperm is surrounded by liquid. The liquid of the sperm works as a lubricant and protectant. The sperm will use this liquid as a way to traverse the vagina and cervix. And this liquid is what will wet the exterior of his pants or his undergarments. Sperm will not be able to pass through clothing and make it successfully into the vagina. If a woman has undergarments on at this time, the chances are so low that it would be considered a miracle if she became pregnant.

In short, even if his pants are wet from ejaculation, sperm cannot penetrate clothing and would remain in his pants.

Dry Humping With No Clothes On

If you’re dry humping without clothes on, the risk of getting pregnant is slightly higher. In the event that neither the male nor female has clothes on, the risk of pregnancy would be completely dependent on the male’s ejaculation. If the male ejaculated directly on the vagina, there is a chance that sperm would enter the vagina and lead to pregnancy.

With this in mind, the chances are very, very miniscule that a woman will get pregnant from dry humping even if the male ejaculates on the vaginal opening. If you do choose to dry hump and allow a male to ejaculate in the process, you can avoid pregnancy by:

  1. Ensuring he does not ejaculate on the vagina.
  2. Making him wear a condom.
  3. Taking birth control.
  4. Using spermicide.

If you follow the above precautions, the risk of ever getting pregnant from dry humping would be all but eliminated.

But, I Haven’t Had My Period Yet!

Many women, especially teenagers, will get worried about pregnancy because their menstrual cycle times fluctuate. There is a slim chance you may be pregnant if the both of you were naked and he ejaculated in your vagina, so the first step is to have a pregnancy test done.

But in the vast majority of cases, a delayed period is caused by normal body changes. It’s not uncommon for stress or overzealous exercise to cause a woman to miss her period. And if this is the case, you’ll likely only be a few days late and everything will be back to normal.

If you do believe that you’re pregnant, you’re one of the very few people that ever get pregnant from dry humping. When clothes are involved, your pegnancy would be considered a miracle at this point. So, don’t stress and get a pregnancy test done to ease your mind.

Dry humping is one of the safest ways to pleasure each other without getting pregnant. If you’re afraid that you may get pregnant from dry humping, oral and anal sex may be a safer option for you. Dry humping is fun, exciting and very safe. When done with clothes on, you’ll be able to please him or her without fear of getting pregnant in the process.
