(sorry the previous post was from me. posted again since response within 24h is for members only)

Dear Sir/Mdm,

My girlfriend and I were in our underwear when we engaged in outercourse (our genitals were rubbing against each other).

I ejaculated in my underwear.

Could this result in pregnancy?

I know several questions have been asked. But can semen/sperm soak through esp if we're in our underwears only. Thanks for your time.

If she misses her period then she can take a pregnancy test. It doesn't necessarily mean she is pregnant since Stress is a huge factor in missed/late periods.

Hi Tim,

Yes, that's true. Sperm aren't really strong enough to swim through clothing. Remember that once outside of the body, semen will die within minutes to an hour at most-- and they begin to weaken almost immediately.

This is not something I would lose any sleep over. However, if you aren't looking to have kids any time soon, please practice safe sex measures.

Best Wishes,

Thanks alot for your prompt reply. Is the following a reliable answer?

My boyfriend and I were fooling around and he came on my underwear. I could feel wetness soaking through, and now I'm worried I could be pregnant. Is this possible?

Sperm are strong swimmers, but they can’t get swim through clothes. Sperm can only live when they are in a liquid – like semen or in vaginal fluids. Once semen is absorbed into a fabric, they die.
