Pregnancy scare!

My bf ejaculated in his underwear. He was unable to change clothes at the time. He walked home and cleaned himself up and changed his underwear (this was about 30 mins later) the semen was still wet when he was changing his clothes and his hands came in contact with it. After this he put his fingers on my vaginal opening (they were dry) and I'm just scared that there could have been traces of sperm on his hand from when he was cleaning himself up. Also before he changed his wet semen boxers I sat on his crotch area while only wearing lace panties. It didn't Seem to have leaked through but I'm still concerned. Also a bit after I gave my bf a hand job and got semen on my hand whiteout realising and uses the hand with semen on to pull up my jeans. I'm really scared. Do I have any chance of becoming pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with your concern if you could have become pregnant.

The answer depends on when in your menstrual cycle this happened. A woman is most likely to become pregnant when she has unprotected intercourse during ovulation or her fertile time. Most women ovulate between day 11 and day 21 of their menstrual cycle. Your high risk days are five days before and on the day of ovulation.

The highest risk for becoming pregnant is with unprotected intercourse (penetration and ejaculation). Now, in your case, if there was wet semen on your boyfriend's fingers when he fingered you, there was a good chance live sperm entered your vagina. But, I don't see a risk when you pulled up your jeans with semen on your hands.

All that you can do now is wait for your next period. If it is late by at least seven days, test for pregnancy. You can consider an early response test, which I think you can test five days before the day of your expected period.
