Question: Possiblity of preg. - dry sex with semen-moistened boxrs

 Nasator1 - Tue Feb 26, 2008 11:58 pm

Sometimes I tease my girlfriend by going, maybe half an inch inside her, covered by my boxers but they were very slighty moist with pre-cum. I've never thought to much about it causing a problem but it worries me and I HAVEto know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if i could be in trouble, here.


Other times I've fingered her just after I had an orgasm and some of my semen got on my hands but I washed them. Now, I'm not to sure how well I washed them but I did kind-of dry them on a towel.

What are the chances of pregnacy there?

Thank you.

User avatar Hello Nasotor1,

Overall the chances of pregnancy from this are low; however, they're not zero. If there were semen left on your hands or if there was semen on your boxers it may have been sufficiently deposited in the vagina to successfully result in pregnancy. Again, chances are very low but not zero.

If your girlfriend has any signs of pregnancy she should take a pregnancy test.

Best wishes.
