What are the chances of pregnancy?

So me and my girlfriend did some messing around, we did NOT have sex! I ejaculated and I got semen on my hands. I went to the bathroom and rinsed my hands with water. I did not use soap. That was a very stupid mistake. I fingered my girlfriend after that for just a little bit. What are the chances of her becoming pregnant?

Hi Anon and thanks for your question.

Sperm can survive outside of the body about an hour. In general, if the semen is still wet it may well have live sperm. It's possible, but unlikely, that your girlfriend would get pregnant under the circumstances you described.

If you, and she, are in need of information to better understand the steps you can take for protection, please see this page. https://www.empowher.com/sexual-health-101

Hope that helps,
