could I be pregnant?

so Ive been stressing out a lot lately. whenever I take a shower, I normally use the wash rag that's already in there to wipe my butt. so what if one day my parents were messing around and my mom used that same wash rag to wipe off my dad's sperm and left it in the shower and I used it to wipe my butt? does fresh water kill sperm?

Hello yayajls,

Thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some information that will put your mind at rest.

Pregnancy can only occur when the male ejaculates into the vagina the intercourse.  Even if there was sperm on the wash rag that you then used yourself, it would not be possible to become pregnant from it.

I hope this has soothed your worries.  Let us know if you have any more questions.

I've been doing this since I was old enough to take showers by myself. my mom is really smart and I doubt she'd leave a rag like that in the shower but still, I need some reassurance.
