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

Hi. My last period was on the 6th of December 2017. I gave my boyfriend a handjob on the 20th of December and got some of his cum on my hand. I wiped it off my hand and I proceeded to wash my hand with soap and water and dried it off on a clean towel. I then wiped down there with a tissue and a clean cloth. My worry is that I didn’t wipe or wash under my nails properly (I have long nails). I’ve been stressing about this a lot thinking that I somehow would’ve rubbed down there (vulva) while wiping by accident.

I don’t think I ovulated as expected (I have pcos, very unpredictible) as I’ve had clear, stretchy, raw egg white type discharge on the 6th of January 2018 and white-ish (clear but a little white) stretchy discharge on the 7th. This normally occurs on my ovulating days, to my knowledge, with both days having slight cramping. However, on some websites, it says it’s an early sign of pregnancy and I freaked out. I took a pregnancy test with a negative response on the 3rd of January 2018 (2 weeks after the incident).

There was no penis and vagina contact at all. I’m just a bit freaked out and would like to have another persons advice/opinion.

Thank you guys so much for your help!

Hi my wife and I were messing around. She had her panties on but I was naked. There was no contact with my penis and her vagina. She was giving me a hj and then I did it too and I played with her vagina (my hands were dry before playing with her and I hadn’t cumed and then she gave me a bj. She played with my penis after but never touched the tip. She went to the bathroom after, used handsanitizer and then went to the bathroom and then used handsanitizer. About ten minutes later she played with her vagina. Is there anyway she’s could be pregnant?

Hello Anon

As a married couple, I hope you understand about sex and pregnancy prevention - a woman cannot get pregnant unless she has unprotected sex (naked) with ejaculation. She would also have to be ovulating.

No offense, but I was reading this and I have to say I’ve read countless articles about people getting pregnant by having sperm on their hands and not knowing, unless that’s just a myth?

Hi my boyfriend and I had sex and he came on my side by my belly and butt. Afterwards I cleaned myself with kleenex and didn't touch it and got dressed. I then headed out and put my coat on and didnt shower until an hour or two later and I washed myself with soap but it ran to my vagina. Could I get pregnant?

Hello Anon

As long as there was no ejaculation in/on your genital area, you can't get pregnant.
The shower scene you described cannot result in pregnancy.

Hello Anon

Sperm doesn't really run down from buttocks into the vagina. If your girlfriends wants to take Plan B that is up to her but if she started the Pill before this happened, there should be no risk.
Best,

I was wondering if you got cum on your hands, but you wiped it off and about 10 or so minutes later i went to the bathroom and wiped (I completely wasn't thinking and didn't wash my hands first).. could i be pregnant? I was on my period and it was September 9th now it's october 2, so getting close to my next period. i've taken 6 pregnancy test and they have all came out negative , i'm hoping that they are all right, but i don't know if it's to soon for a test to tell.
