No worries: A good washing with water will do just fine in rinsing away sperm. Soap is optional, but using soap is ok too. That said, many things are possible in life. Couples having sex should always be ready to be married, settled down, and with stable jobs that provide health insurance (a cute, surprise baby has just as many doctor visits as a planned baby).

Pregnancy is not possible in above circumstances. Contraception remains otherwise key in avoiding undesired pregnancy and associated anxiety, specifically when intercourse becomes possible.

Ulnar neuropathy: You have likely heard of carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a compression and irritation of the median nerve in the wrist. Ulnar tunnel syndrome, which it sounds like you may have, is a compression of the ulnar nerve in elbow. This nerve supplies the ring finger and pinky fingers. If it is compressed and irritated it can produce tingling and pain in those fingers. It is more common in pregnancy.

Okay: Lemon and honey, cayenne pepper laced broths, peppermint extract in warm liquids, a little burbon with honey, perhaps cold liquids, ice creams, sorbets etc, hot lemonade (with a bit of bourbon), and I am sure there are a few herbals that can be used.

Would a pinched sciatic nerve cause pain in wrists and numbness/tingling in hands or feet?

Feet maybe, hands no: The sciatic nerve runs from the gluteal region (your rear end) down the back of your leg, then branches to innervate the back of the thigh and leg as well as the outer part of the lower leg and then parts of the feet. An injury may cause those symptoms there, as well as problems with motion. The major nerves that serve the hands are the radial, ulnar and median.

A few possibilities: Depression is possible, hypothyroidism also and even autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia. All can lead to fatigue, low libido, tiredness, foggy brain and low energy and motivation. Cold hands and feet are more likely along with fogginess to suggest medical problems. This is only a short list. A thorough medical and possibly psychiatric evaluation are in order.
