Concerned (20) writes: A couple of days ago, my boyfriend and I were fooling around and though he never actually went inside me, his penis did come in contact with my vaginal area a few times and a little while later, he fingered me. I got worried that I might get pregnant from this because there was no protection involved so I took Plan B within 24 hours. I’m supposed to have started my period any day now so I really don’t think I’ve ovulated at all but I haven’t started yet, and I’m getting worried. Should I be?

I wouldn’t be worried if I were you. From what you’ve said, it sounds like there was a small chance that any semen was actually involved. Plus, taking Plan B within 24 hours gives you excellent odds for preventing any pregnancy that might have occurred. Do be aware that, since you took Plan B, your period may be affected; in other words, it may come later than expected or not last as long. If you continue to be worried, it’s always safe to take a home pregnancy test around the time that your next expected period should have ended. Overall, though, if I were you, I wouldn’t be worried.
