Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can a woman get pregnant if fingered sperm in her vagina immediately after evacuating during most fertile window day?

Can a woman get pregnant if fingered sperm in her vagina immediately after evacuating during most fertile window day?

Inefficient: This is not a very efficient way to get pregnant. It only takes one sperm to get pregnant. The most efficient way to get pregnant is to have sperm deposited in the vagina during vaginal intercourse. If you are not wanting to be pregnant then consider starting birth control to avoid these scares. Also have him wash his hands if there is semen on them next time. Take precautions

Can a woman get pregnant from pre-cum or inserting sperm into her vagina with her finger if she's ovulating?

Can a woman get pregnant from pre-cum or inserting sperm into her vagina with her finger if she's ovulating?

Well, ...: Pre-ejaculate can contain sperm cells, so YES, you may get pregnant if ovulating. Also, sperm must enter the vagina around the time of your ovulation to possibly get pregnant, ...that being said, if a man ejaculates outside the vagina, and then you immediately get the ejaculate all over your fingers and insert them into your vagina, you could certainly get pregnant as well.

Can a women get pregnant from sperm outside the vagina? Can the sperm swim its way inside and impregnates her? What about sperm deposited in the anus

Can a women get pregnant from sperm outside the vagina? Can the sperm swim its way inside and impregnates her? What about sperm deposited in the anus

Unlikely: Sperm need to have a moist environment to help them survive and to help transport them into the cervix and into the uterus. It's highly unlikely that a sperm would be able to get there from outside the vagina and would never be able to via anal sex. Regardless, please consider getting birth control in order to prevent the risk of unplanned pregnancy.

If a woman has sperm on her finger and later touches her vagina with that finger but not put it in her vagina, only touches is. Can she get pregnant?

If a woman has sperm on her finger and later touches her vagina with that finger but not put it in her vagina, only touches is. Can she get pregnant?

Here are some. ..: The scenario as described poses zero odd to conceive although no one likes to give 100% guaranty for self protection. But, nowadays, doing HPT in 1 wk after missing period and repeating it in 1 wk if the 1st test is (-) and still in doubt become the standard of practice. Of course, seek pro-evaluation timely if still in doubt.

STILL LOW: There is not Definitive Number to give you. But as stated, this is NOT a recommended activity as insertion of Warm, immediately/recently ejaculated sperm being inserted via the fingers can possible cause a pregnancy if the woman is ovulating or recently ovulated.

Whether a woman can get pregnant from a little sperm, perhaps less than half of the drop, which somehow gets into the vagina, five days before period?

Whether a woman can get pregnant from a little sperm, perhaps less than half of the drop, which somehow gets into the vagina, five days before period?

Conception: If a woman has regular 28 day cycles, she is most likely to get pregnant 14 days prior to her period, or after for that matter. 5 days before the period is usually a less fertile time, but of course anything is possible. Less fertile is not infertile.

When the male sperm is in the women vagina and she don't get pregnant where do the sperm moves in her vagina?

When the male sperm is in the women vagina and she don't get pregnant where do the sperm moves in her vagina?

They perish: Sperm will try to swim through the cervix into the uterus. If the sperm is not the chosen one to fertilize an egg, it dies, perhaps valiantly, perhaps in vain; but death all the same.

I ejaculate in my underwear, my bed sheet became wet, if woman deposit sperms in her vagina after 3 minutes of ejaculation, can she become pregnant?

I ejaculate in my underwear, my bed sheet became wet, if woman deposit sperms in her vagina after 3 minutes of ejaculation, can she become pregnant?

Odds are low: Your odds are low because the volume and quality/quantity inseminated would be quiet low compared to ejaculation in the body. Odds are low.

Can I get pregnant from sperm on my underwear even though I took it off almost immediately? It did not drip to my vagina and my vagina seemed dry.

Can I get pregnant from sperm on my underwear even though I took it off almost immediately? It did not drip to my vagina and my vagina seemed dry.

Highly Unlikely: There are rare, isolated instances where pregnancy has occurred from sperm, on, or inside clothing. But I think this is very rare. Typically, sperm LowDye, if they are allowed to dry outside the body, and can live for a brief period longer, and some water (i.e. a bath). still it would be exceedingly difficult for sperm to then result in pregnancy

Can you get pregnant from sperm landing on your stomach, and then rolling down close to or on your vagina?

Very unlikely, but..: If sperm expelled in fluid before withdrawal, then possibly. Save worry, be safe from stds and pregnancy- use condoms, even though not foolproof.

If sperm gets around the outside of the vagina, how likely is it to get pregnant?

If sperm gets around the outside of the vagina, how likely is it to get pregnant?

Not likely: For conception to occur, several finely tuned processes must occur all in perfect order. First of which is cervical bathing/coating by sperm. The reason this is needed is because of all the volume deposited at the cervix, some will leak out, some will never enter the cervix, some will die in the uterine cavity. Sperm deposited on the exterior of the vagina can't "migrate" into the vaginal canal.

If sperm gets around the outside of the vagina, how likely is it to get pregnant?

Not likely: Sperms outside vagina do not live long but if they find their way inside the vagina than they can survive from 3 to 5 days in the fallopian tubes.

Sperm has been left outside vagina. Remained there for a minute and cleaned. Is there any chance to get pregnant?

Sperm has been left outside vagina. Remained there for a minute and cleaned. Is there any chance to get pregnant?

Here are some. ..: The detailed scenario poses no rick to conceive although no one would give 100% guaranty in real life for self protection since absolute sex abstinence is the only means to avoid pregnancy. But, thanks to high accuracy and easy availability of HPT, which has taken away the worry and second-guess for pregnancy. So, do HPT in 1 wk after missing period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st was (-) or. ..

How fast can a sperm outside of vagina swim inside? If he came on top of my vagina without penetration, will I get pregnant?

How fast can a sperm outside of vagina swim inside? If he came on top of my vagina without penetration, will I get pregnant?

Possibly: Like most "aquatic critters" sperm need a warm moist transit system to reach "nirvana" (the vagina and then the egg) if any of the ejaculate made it to the vulva (outside of your vagina) then, yes, you can get pregnant.

What does it mean if the sperm touches the vagina outside and mense come will it get pregnant?

Normally sperm: Touching the outside of the vagina does not lead to pregnancy. Sperm at the opening of the vagina (introitus) or in the vagina can lead to pregnancy. If a woman is pregnant her period will stop.
