can you still get pregnant if you washed your vagina immediately if there was sperm present ON the vagina. again, ON the vagina, not IN the vagina.

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Unfortunately we cannot answer this definitively. Sperm may have had a chance to enter or it may not have - it's very difficult to know for sure.

What we can tell you is that your risk is extremely low - it would be very unusual for this activity to lead to pregnancy, but nobody can say you are 100% safe.

Anon, when is your period due?

Hi Anon

Again, your risk is VERY low. You can take a test about 14 days after you had this sexual activity. A test should be accurate by then.
