Ask Bish – An open letter about low risk sex and pregnancy worries
tl;dr – pregnancy is very very unlikely from dry humping, wanking and sex with condoms.
Hey Bish Fans
My most frequently asked question is from people who are really worried about getting (or getting someone) pregnant from low risk sexual activity (mutual masturbation, dry humping, genital contact, penis in vagina sex with condoms). I’ve written a lot about this. There’s a guide here, and I’ve done some #AskBishes about it here, here and here.
I’ve also made one of my stupid videos with my boring voice going on and on and on and on and on about it.
If you’re in the middle of really stressing out about this remember that a) it’s extremely unlikely that pregnancy will happen from this and b) periods are late for lots and lots of different reasons.
One thing you could try if you worry about this a lot (if you’re the one with the vagina) is to try and keep a record of your menstrual cycle. If you get into the habit of doing this then you can start to learn more about your body and some of the signs for when you ovulate and when you’re about to get your period. This might help you be a bit less stressed about it.
If you have a smartphone you might want to try an app called ‘Clue’ which looks pretty cool, seems pretty easy and doesn’t assume that just because you have a vagina that you are a woman. Check it out here. (They haven’t paid me to say this – I just like it).
Other than that, there isn’t anything more I can say that will make you feel better. I’m sorry. If you’re stressed, try some of your coping strategies for other kinds of stress that you deal with (like waiting for an important WhatsApp message, exam results, watching Homeland). I’ve also got some help for you in the video above.
Hope you find this helpful
