can sperm diluted in water cause pregnancy?

hello doctor,
I ejaculated on my girlfriend unknowingly, and some of the sperm fell on her neck, hair and upper breast area. she wiped it dry with a dry towel immediately after, and said she bathed. will the water( which had Dettol in it) that ran over her body cause her pregnant? is there a possibility for the survival of tiny remnants of sperm(after drying off skin) and the water run over the vaginal area( which was hot with a small amount of Dettol) can get her pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about the potential for pregnancy.

No. There was no risk with this scenario. No semen entered her vagina. She wiped off any ejaculate. She bathed using an antibacterial soap (Dettol) and hot water. No sperm survived.

thanks a lot for your reply...I was really worried.. will the sperm die immediately after coming in contact with anti bacterial solution or cloth?

Hello Anonymous,

Washing with hot water and soap, antibacterial or other, removes the semen containing sperm, sending it down the drain. Wiping with a cloth removes the semen from the body and absorbs it.
