Infrequent Menstruation And Doubts On Pregnancy


Q: Hi, I am 16 and started menstruation when I was 13. I have been very infrequent, usually skipping every second month, I think mostly because I am often stressed because of family issues and school. On the 2nd of July, me and my boyfriend got intimate. We were grinding with just underwear at first but later showered together. He rubbed his penis by the entrance of my vagina but he did not penetrate me. He later came but pulled away before it went there. I read about how pre-come can contain sperm but also how is can't survive in high temperatures. The shower was pretty hot. Could I still get pregnant without penetration? My last period was on the 3rd of June. I started my period again on the 5th of July, 3 days after what happened. It was very heavy as usual. I am now on day 3 and it is extremely light which is not normal. I heard that sometimes you will bleed a bit when you're pregnant. What are the chances that I could be pregnant? When would be a good time to take a pregnancy test? Thanks for your help
