I took the Plan B pill 4 days after pull out method just to lower my chances of pregnancy but could I still get pregnant even if she cleaned the precu?

"Pull out" method: The "pull out" method is unreliable. It would be nearly impossible to clean all traces of pre-cum sperm that might be in your vagina. Plan b is most effective in the first 24 hours. 4 days later is much less effective. Please talk with your doctor about more reliable birth control methods. ...Read more

Can someone get pregnant when someone masturbate on clean undies and cum on it. Then the clueless owner wore the undies. Is pregnancy possible?

Not How it Works: No. That is not how babies are made. Sperm do not survive on clothing, do not swim through clothes and do not swim on dry skin. Perhaps at seventeen, so you are fully empowered as a female who knows her own body, you can spend fifteen minutes today reviewing Ovulation and your fertile and how babies are made. ...Read more

Hi, can touching outer vulva after ejaculation and cleaning properly can cause pregnancy? Even if there was no penetration as it was not hard.

Hi, can touching outer vulva after ejaculation and cleaning properly can cause pregnancy? Even if there was no penetration as it was not hard.

Here are some...: Your described scenario makes the odd to conceive virtually next to zero although no one offers 100% guaranty in real life; in fact, no contraceptives have ever given a perfect guaranty. Hence & still, do HPT in a wk after missing period and repeat it in another wk if the first test is (-) and still in doubt. More? Seek pro-evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more

Does it matter what type of container you use when dipping urine for a pregnancy test. I used a glass cup, clean and dry. Just want to make sure the glass doesn't interfere with an accurate result.?

Does it matter what type of container you use when dipping urine for a pregnancy test. I used a glass cup, clean and dry. Just want to make sure the glass doesn't interfere with an accurate result.?

No worries: Any clean, dry container is fine. Urine pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

I smoked marijuana in the beginning of my pregnancy I will be about 4 months clean before I have the baby will the hospital take my baby away?

Cannot see happening: Good for you that you will be 4 months clean before delivering your baby. I hope you are also avoiding alcohol, tobacco, and anything else that might have an adverse effect on your baby or you. Unless there are a lot of other extenuating circumstances about which you have not shared, I cannot see your baby being taken from you over your previous marihuana use. May both your baby and you be healthy. ...Read more

If been clean off cocaine last 3 months of pregnancy. Is it mandatory to test the baby stool when born and will he show positive? Will they take him?

Neonatal addiction: Lots of loaded questions. They'll always do a urine test on you, due to your use. Many hospitals do these on all moms. If positive they'll do a urine & meconium on the baby. If the UDS is neg, some hospitals will do it, due to your history. As far as taking the baby, there are many other factors that go in to that decision, besides the drug screen. Each case is individual. Good luck, stay clean!!! ...Read more

Gf gave me a hj & cleaned the semen off her hand with a napkin & then put her panties on & they got dragged across the wet napkin Chance of pregnancy?

Extremely unlikely: It is almost impossible for her to get pregnant this way. There would be an extremely tiny chance of pregnancy if the crotch area of her underwear touched a very wet part of the napkin and then that wet area pushed up very closely to her vagina. Even then, though, it's VERY very unlikely. ...Read more

Is cleaning yourself with vinager 48 hours after sexual intercourse avoid pregnancy?

No: Right after ejaculation the sperm goes through the cervix, and up the uterus to the fallopian tube all the way to where the egg is and fertilize it inside then the fertilized egg goes back for implantation in a few days. Vinegar will only clean and cleanse locally and 48 hours is too late. Prevention of the sperm to go in during intercourse is the only way to prevent pregnancy or no ready egg. ...Read more

Ejaculation on girlfriend's chest, went to the shower to clean. Possible that it mixed with water and went into vagina to cause pregnancy?

Ejaculation on girlfriend's chest, went to the shower to clean. Possible that it mixed with water and went into vagina to cause pregnancy?

No. Not likely: Since it is usually necessary to have healthy and motile sperms deposited directly in the vaginal canal "to cause pregnancy", "ejaculation on her chest and the mixing with shower water and the entry of these sperms into the vagina" are really quite unlikely to cause a pregnancy. ...Read more
