Ejaculated near vulva, but got up in 1 minutes. Is there any chance of pregnancy?

Ejaculated near vulva, but got up in 1 minutes. Is there any chance of pregnancy?

Keep in mind: Ovulation is of course essential to pregnancy, but sperm in semen travels a long way inside and can live several days. So there may be a day or two difference in ovulation before/during/after intercourse that still results in pregnancy. Bottom line, if you're not intending a baby, use contraception. Also, over the counter 'plan b' is safe for most women after unprotected sex. ...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.

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

There's no chance of pregnancy from wet area of precum on boxers touching outside of naked vulva right? Wouldn't it be hard to travel that far up?

There is.: There is a chance. It's just that the probability of you getting pregnant is extremely low.

Can showering or wiping prevent pregnancy if sperm comes in contact with vulva, near vulva?

Sometimes: It takes very little time for sperm to start moving up the vagina and each drop contains about 20 million sperm per drop. Wiping off or removing some of the semen does remove some or most of the sperm, but very unlikely to remove all of it. Time for condoms and birth control. ...Read more

A doctor here said fresh ejaculation from masturbation on toilet seat could cause a pregnancy, is this true (does vulva ever touch seat)?

A doctor here said fresh ejaculation from masturbation on toilet seat could cause a pregnancy, is this true (does vulva ever touch seat)?

That would take some: Real doing!! The ejaculate would actually have to make it to the introitus (opening of the vagina) or into the vagina. Thus, casually sitting on a toilet seat would not do the trick. I would expect that most women's vulva do not touch the toilet seat - that would be pretty gross. ...Read more

Can semen pass through 2 layers of cotton clothes and cause pregnancy? While dry humping, ejaculation caused, fell slightly above vulva, 1cm away from it

Caution when wet: Dry humping without ejaculation will not cause pregnancy when dry clothes are present. However, once ejaculation occurs the clothing gets wet and like a slippery floor can cause a "slipup" and pregnancy. Use contraception at all times. It is dangerous to play with a "loaded weapon". ...Read more

Can showering, douching, wiping prevent pregnancy at all if semen has come in contact or near vagina, vulva?

Not at all: None of those things will help decrease the risk of pregnancy after intercourse. Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. Then see a doctor to start birth control to avoid these scares in the future. ...Read more
