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.

Can sperm get from the stomach to the vagina and get through knickers if it is washed down in the shower? Could shevget pregnant like this?

Can sperm get from the stomach to the vagina and get through knickers if it is washed down in the shower? Could shevget pregnant like this?

Pretty unlikely: Sounds rather far fetched to me. It only takes one sperm to get pregnant however. If semen were ejaculated onto a woman's belly while she was wearing clothes, and the ejaculate were washed off - no fingers near semen and then into the vagina - it's downright unlikely that a pregnancy would occur. ...Read more

Will sperm travel through water if I came on my girlfriend's chest down to the vagina and get her pregnant?

Will sperm travel through water if I came on my girlfriend's chest down to the vagina and get her pregnant?

Not: Most likely it will not
That is a very long journey to travel from the chest all the way to the upper abdomen, then to the lower abdomen, then to the vagina and travel inside the vagina to reach the cervix and enter the uterus to meet the egg from the ovary.
Kind of hard to do even if they have GPS ...Read more

Can a girl be pregnant if she is virgin but penis get inside vagina half only in which penis got up and down around 8 times without releasing sperm?

Can a girl be pregnant if she is virgin but penis get inside vagina half only in which penis got up and down around 8 times without releasing sperm?

Misconceptions: No one is a virgin after partner sex involving intercourse. The excited penis has mucous secretions that contain sperm, so any contact of that penis with the vagina can deposit enough sperm to cause pregnancy, even just 8 times. Just because you didn't release the main load does not mean you didn't leave sperm behind. Pregnancy risk is less than when the main load is left, but still possible. ...Read more

Fears like this: Should be addressed with a therapist. Realistically, you can't get pregnant not even a sexually transmitted disease in the ways you're worrying about. I can't talk you out of this on the web and I'm sure others have offered all kinds of rational (to them)explanations which haven't helped. This is probably a symptom of a more serious psychiatric condition. See a therapist or psychiatrist. ...Read more

Can sperm be killed by washing it with hot water (on my stomach and I had pants on) could I get pregnant? Can sperm swin down to the vagina that far?

Not how babies made: Yes. Sperm dies quickly in air on on skin. It is highly unlikely that sperm in this scenario got deep inside the vagina and very unlikely to have caused pregnancy. This is not how babies are made. Perhaps taking a few minutes to review on any number of websites how pregnancy happens is advisable for you. ...Read more

Could you get pregnant if you had anal sex but sperm might have dripped down to the vagina? I got my first Depo-Provera shot almost 2 weeks ago.

Sperm + egg: First of all you are on the Depo-Provera shot so you are protected. Second, pregnancy occurs if sperm can reach an egg. If you feel the sperm may have been deposited in the vagina in such a way that it could fertilize an egg then pregnancy is possible in someone who was not on birth control. ...Read more

Can you still get pregnant if sperm is ejaculated into the vagina even though its after ovulation?

Pregnancy: Only occurs when sperm fertilizes an egg. This occurs after ovulation, the egg being expelled at ovulation and being fertile for at the most 2 days. So there is a 1-2 day window for the sperm to fertilize the egg. Sperm can stay alive in the vaginal tract for up to 5 days. So if you know exactly when you ovulate and exactly when sperm is available you can determine if it is possible. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant it sperm spills near your vagina and you are a virgin in your safe days?

No: Now, if the sperm were to somehow spill into your vagina or the introitus (area right around the opening of the vagina) then pregnancy would be possible. There are no 'safe' days from pregnancy. And it is not accurate to call oneself a virgin if you only have sex at certain times. I encourage you to educate yourself further before considering sexual interactions. ...Read more
