Can Sperm Travel Through Clothes?


Q: Hello,
I was kissing my boyfriend rather intensely a few days ago and I know our bodies were pressed closely. We were both wearing clothes: he was wearing underwear and a pair of athletic jogger pants, and I in underwear and long but slightly thin pajama pants. I know that our genitals were near each other (pressed) but we never removed our clothes or did dry humping or anything of the sort. But after I went to the bathroom and I know there was more vaginal discharge than normal, I can say that vaginal discharge is normal for me especially when my hormones are raised as they were. But what I'm worried about is if my boyfriend ejaculated, or released any sort of liquid really, is there a chance that sperm would have gotten into me therefore causing me to become pregnant? I have read many articles online and do not know what to trust. Also I will add I have irregular periods always. I haven't had one in the past month and a half. Please let me know if there is any chance for pregnancy
