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

Hi Anon

Yes, pregnancy is possible, especially if the sperm was fresh, less than 10 minutes old.

Hello Anonymous,

There was a possible risk for pregnancy because sperm can live about 20 minutes outside the body and your boyfriend fingered you with semen on his hands.

My boyfriend and I were fooling around and his semen got on the seat of my car and I wiped it off with my hand. About 5 or so minutes later, not thinking, I played with my clit. I never went inside though. Could I get pregnant?

Hi Anon!

There is no risk of pregnancy here. 

Next time have your boyfriend pick up his own sperm, cleaning off sperm with your hands is really unhygienic. 

Best,

Susan

Me and my boyfriend was having a bit of fun and I gave him a hj then about 1:30mins after I went to the toilet and I'm not sure if there was semen on my hands when I wiped my vigina with the toilet role is there any chances of my getting pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

I do not think you were at risk of becoming pregnant because any semen would have been on the side of the toilet tissue near your hand and not on the side that you used to wipe.
