Pregnancy risks

By Anonymous September 6, 2012 - 7:22pm

I have 3 questions, hope someone helps by answering me :)
1- Do sperms just weaken or they die once they are outside the body?
2- could sperms in ejaculation on breasts/abdomen/stomach etc find a path to the genital area and vagina to make a woman (wearing panties) pregnant or is it impossible?
3- Having ejaculation on my breasts, wiping it away then showering an hour later would put me under pregnancy risk or not?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Absolutely, semen outside of the body tends to dry up and sperm therefore die.  A woman can't get pregnant from having ejaculation on her breast or abdomen area.  First, sperm can not find it's way from your chest and sperm can not swim through clothes.  There has to be intercourse in order for sperm to live and swim up the vaginal wall into the cervix.  Where pregnancy can then occur. 

Here are some resources for you
