So on the first day of my last period I gave an ex oral sex im worried the semen on my hand was still there when I went toilet and I can't remember if I washed my hands or not before wiping myself after doing a wee could this get me pregnant? A week later in my fertile time I had unprotected sex loads of times in the space of a week with my current boyfriend and have just found out I'm pregnant..There is no possible way its my ex that got me pregnant from possible sperm on my hand when I went toilet is there? Just worrying really although i didn't have sex just gave blow job as opposed to having loads of unprotected sex with boyfriend?

Hi worry13, 

I am glad that you are taking care of yourself and the baby! Stress is not healthy for both of you, so try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy. The baby is definitely your boyfriend's. I hope this can set your mind at ease!

Hello worry13,

Thank you for joining the EmpowHER community and for sharing your question about the paternity of your baby. 

You can't get pregnant by accidentally wiping semen on yourself. The baby is your boyfriends.

Have you made a doctor's appointment to get started on prenatal vitamins and proper care?

Hi Thanks for replying yes I have seen doctor and now taking vitamins. I'm just such a worrier about everything and don't want to go through pregnancy unsure as I don't want to be stressed. So given my situation it's definitely my boyfriends?
