A friend of mine needs your help which I am unable to provide reasonable answers.
According to what she had told me she and her boyfriend were fooling around 5 days ago, the boyfriend's precm got on her hand but she didnt not touch herself however her boyfriend sort of touched himself and alittle of the precm or the ejaculation got on his palm and finger. After 2-3mins he touched the side of her private part (he said his finger was dry). Are there any chances that she might be at risk of getting pregnant from this? Also they had a pretended sex, she was wearing both her undie and short and her boyfriend wearing his undie as well.. Is there a chance that the precm migh'tve travel through the clothes entering her private part and cause pregnancy.
She is really worried and I dont have the knowledge to help her out.
Please help!

Hello Ella Sung,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us on behalf of your friend.

There was no risk for pregnancy with the second scenario because both were wearing clothes. No pre-ejaculate fluid or ejaculate can penetrate or pass through clothes. Think of the clothing as a protective barrier.

If the partner actually put his finger, which had semen on it, into her vagina, then there was a chance she could have become pregnant. But, the risk existed only if this happened five days before or on the day she ovulated. This time is called the fertile window.

It is important to note that pre-ejaculate fluid does not contain sperm. Sperm can remain in the urethra if the male has had a very recent ejaculation. Once he urinates, any tag along sperm is flushed out.

Hope this information is helpful to your friend.

so does that mean she doesnt need to worry about being pregnant if he didnt finger her? because he only touched the side of her private part?
