Could I be pregnant

My boyfriend had semen on his fingers and wiped it off. Then 10-15 minutes later, he fingered me. Is there any risk of pregnancy?

Hello nichol07,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for your question.

Sperm can live outside the body for about 20 minutes. If your boyfriend wiped away all the semen, washing with soap and water would have been better, and then fingered you 10 to 20 minutes later, there should not have been a risk for becoming pregnant.
