Is there a risk from going to the bathroom after a guy? What if there was his sperm or cum on it. I know the seat was wet & I touched it & then wiped with the same hand a couple times. How likely is it if the toilet paper with it touched me? My period is suppose to start in 4 days. This was a week and a half ago.

Hi softball77,

You can not get pregnant like that either.  There has to be intercourse, in order for sperm to live and swim up the cervix.  Where pregnancy can then occur. 

Please read the link provided previously, that will help you understand.

Thank you! But what if I touched the toilet with my fingers & then wiped with the toilet paper?
