Can I get pregnant?

A week ago, I gave my boyfriend a handjob and 10 minutes after that, he rubbed my clit. If there was sperm on his hand could I get pregnant? Although, in those 10 minutes we were hugging and he put his hoodie back on so any sperm would've surely have wiped off, I think?

Hi Whatsup,

Thanks for asking your question on EmpowHER!

From the situation you described, your chances of pregnancy are very low and next to nothing.

Having unprotected sex increases chances of pregnancy. However, actually sexual intercourse must happen in order for a pregnancy to occur.

What you described is known as intercourse, which does not cause pregnancy. Also, when sperm is outside of the body, it dries up and dies - making it unable to cause pregnancy. Like what you said, it's likely the sperm wiped off too.

I hope this helps ease some fears! Read over this piece to learn more about what can and can't cause pregnancy: http://www.empowher.com/community/share/outercourse-dry-humping-dry-sex-...

Best,
Erin
