If sperm is on your hands will it die pretty quickly or does it take a long time?

Hello Anonymous,

Since you have not gotten your period this month, take a home pregnancy test. Test in the morning and use the first urine of the day.

I don't think you were at a high risk but if there was semen on his fingers, sperm could have gotten into your vagina with fingering.

Hi,just few days ago my bf and I was having some fun.It was around 10 days before my period starts,my bf had some sperm on his hands,after which it dried up completely and just 5 mins later he suddenly fingered me with my panties on,however I was wet in my vagina alr which caused my panties to be wet as well.When I asked my bf did he have any sperm,he said his fingers were dried when he fingered me with my "wet" underswear.May I know will I get pregnant? Will the sperm die on his hands 5 mins after being dried up? And even if so can sperm travel through his fingers to the wetness of my panties to my vagina and cause me pregnant?? Please help me,im really worried :(

Hi Anon

Underwear is a barrier sperm can't get through and fingers can't get a woman pregnant. Dry sperm is dead sperm. You can't get pregnant.

Hi Anon!

It doesn't matter about your fluids - if sperm is dead, it's dead. Wet underwear isn't going to make it come alive in order to impregnate.

So i precame and then i touched my penis i wiped it after and 30 mins i caressed my girlfriend in her thighs with pants on and then probably 15 mins after that i stimulated her through her pants with the same hand and then after doing that for 5 mins she wanted me to stimulate her through her panties does this pose any threat to pregnancy?

No, no risk at all.

Hi guys
I have this question...
Can a girl be pregnant if she wasn't ovulating when having sex after her period ? ? Is it still a risk to be pregnant?

Hi Anon

Sperm can stay alive for 5 days or even longer in the body so even if she wasn't ovulating when she had sex, there is still a risk.
