Is this possible?

I think I'm over reacting, however, I'm anxious. I'm wondering if it possible to become pregnant from touching my clitoris with my fingers. I often do it, however, have started having scary thoughts that this could cause a pregnancy. What if I unknowingly touched something with sperm on it and this was transferred to my fingers and now I've put it in my vagina. I have been having weird feelings in my stomach. Can you please help me with some advice? Thank you

Hello Kaley45,

I would like to welcome you to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us to help with your question about conception.

No, you will not become pregnant by touching your clitoris.

Sperm dies as soon as semen dries. It lives about 20 minutes to one hour after ejaculation.

Kaley45, I would like to help you overcome your concerns and anxieties about becoming pregnant. I think knowledge empowers you to overcome fears.
Please take a few minutes to look at this slideshow, "Am I Pregnant? Myths and Facts About Sex"
