Hello, we did some dry sex two days ago, both in underwear, and I spilled some sperm on her underwear. Should we take postinor? Can she get pregnant?

Hmmm....: In normal everyday life, sperm does not go through underwear to create babies, just like a person cannot run faster than 28 miles per hour, cannot grow any taller after age 30 years, etc... It just doesn't happen. However, one should be careful when in only underwear, as the human biological drive to impregnate is naturally high, so sometimes stuff happens and a penis just gets into a vagina. ...Read more

Nor after then. ...Read more
