I used a towel to clean my vagina which was used by a male 6-7 hours before. Now I am worried that can it cause pregnancy as i have a doubt that the towel contained a sperm or semen. I used the towel after 6-7 hours so the sperm would have been alive by then? Please help me as i am very worried.

Hello Anonymous,

No. There was no risk of pregnancy by using this towel.

As I mentioned in my reply to your earlier question, any sperm would be dead.

Please take a few minutes to look at this slide show, "Am I Pregnant? Myths and Facts About Sex"

Knowledge about how you become pregnant will eliminate unnecessary concern.
