Hi Anon,

There is a slight possibility if you wiped your vagina right after he did with the same exact piece of towel that has his sperm on it. It is very rare, but possible. The good news is that sperm begin to "die" right after they are out of the body and within a few minutes will no longer be motile and it would take a lot of work for the sperm on the towel to find their way to get your pregnant. Like I said, it is possible but rare. Don't stress out over this and wait till you get your next period.

Good Luck,
