Pregnancy risk from left out semen?

Hello, i asked this question 2 days ago. but the site went under maintenance and i lost the link and couldn't check back if there were any comments. Anyways my story again is:

Me and my bf were together. i was dressed and he ejaculated away from me. And after around 10 mins he came on top of me. After he wore his underwear and denim pants, i was wearing underwear and normal pants. however, he touched my down there just from the outside, I am a virgin (didnt try intercourse before or even fingering)... my concern now, is what if his hands had left out semen because ofcourse when he ejaculated he touched himself... although his hand was dry when he touched me and it happened after 10 mins not directly after ejaculation, i am scared... any pregnancy risk? please help.

Hi Anonymous,

The simple answer is absolutely NOT. Sperm must enter the vagina while it is still alive in order for you to become pregnant. Dry semen is no longer alive.


Hope that helps.

maybe it was not so clear in my original question. when he touched me, his hand touched my actual skin down there not the clothes...
still no risk?

Thanks Missie. I am feeling relieved now... his hands were dry meaning sperm dried also..
i was about to buy a home pregnancy test and try it after 10 days but i think there is no need for that now.

I have a general question now: a man has to ejaculate inside a women's vagina for pregnancy to occur or ejaculation on the outside, near the vagina might also cause pregnancy. i am thinking it might but lower possibility.. ya?
