Pregnancy Risk/Chance

Good day ma'am/sir! I am worrying that maybe there's a chance of pregnancy here. Here's what happened. I was masturbating with my girlfriend and then I ejaculated on my hands. I washed my hands with water and a little bit of soap and wiped it immediately with a towel. After that, I fingered her. Next thing after we rest for about 30 mins, we had dry sex, I humped her. We are only wearing our underwear but there is a very thin blanket between us. I came and I was very wet. My question is, is there a possibility that the sperm survived after I washed my hands and is it possible for the sperm to go through fabric like in our situation? Please help. I am so worried here :(

Hello BrandonJames,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I am glad you reached out to us with your questions.

I can reassure you that there was no risk of your girlfriend becoming pregnant. Washing and drying your hands removed all semen. Sperm cannot travel through fabric.

Thank you ma'am Maryann, even if she is ovulating that time? No direct contact of our genitals though.

Hello BrandonJames,

Even if she was ovulating. Sperm cannot pass through clothing.
