hi, I gave my boyfriend a handjob a few days ago, according to my period app I did so a week before my period is due and it is supposed to come tomorrow. when he came, he came on my stomach and a little of it went on the top of my pelvis, right below where the hair starts growing. we cleaned it up by wiping it off, up towards my stomach and then I wiped my stomach with a wet towel to get any extra ejactulate off.
now I can't stop thinking that there's a chance that a few sperm got down there and I could be pregnant... I have gotten cramps a few times over the past few days and had a lot of discharge yesterday. is there a chance that I could be pregnant??
I'm freaking out.

Hi Anon!

You're fine - sperm don't know where to go (ie - find a vagina and swim up it) when you engage in that kind of sexual activity. Pregnancy is impossible - your period should be along when expected. Your symptoms are probably PMS.

hi, so I gave my boyfriend handjob, he came. then I wants to clean myself with tissues, so I asked him to passed it to me. th thing is I'm not sure when he's passing to me, does his hands have semen on it or did he used th tissues to wiped himself then pass it to me. when I asked him, he told me that he was very sure that his hands were clean and he did not clean himself w those tissues. but I'm still v concern about it as idk if he cleaned himself w it b4 passing it to me or what, can I get pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

I am assuming you used the tissue to wipe your fingers. If that is all you did with the tissue, there would be no risk of you becoming pregnant.

I used th tissues to clean my vagina area bc it was wet, but I'm sure I didn't use my left hand ( th one that help my boyfriend's) to touch th tissues. after that I wore back my pants then I use a new piece of tissues to wiped th semen off and then washed my hands.

Hello Anonymous,

I don't think you were at risk for becoming pregnant. Next time, wash with soap and warm water.

Can I get pregnant the day after my period, fingering myself with my boyfriends cm after 12 hours, having washed my hands maybe 3 times with any cum under my fingernails? I'm very scared of even the slightest possibility. I keep telling myself that it isn't possible, but I'm very afraid of the chance.
