Question: Can I get pregnant with dry semen?

 synet - Sun May 24, 2009 6:30 pm

Me and my boyfriend were foreplaying.
I masturbated him and he eyaculated.
I wiped my hands with the sheets of the bed.
Like 5 minutes later I masturbated my self with my hand
and I introduced my fingers.
Can I get pregnant?

Can a woman get pregnant with wiped off semen or dry semen on fingers?
Can a woman get pregnant with semen in fingers (not dry, liquid)?
If yes, what are the chances? much, a little, a lot? percentage

User avatar Hello,
There could be an extremely rare chance you could become pregnant from semen on the fingers introduced into the vagina. You should be careful in these cases and to be completely safe, use surgical gloves which can then be carefully removed before moving on.

If in doubt you may want to take a pregnancy test.

Best wishes.
