05/12/17 - Could i be pregnant?

05/12/17 - Female, 17 :

Hi. I just was wondering if a guy touched his penis with no semen on it or maybe some semen and touched your vagina is there a likely chance you could get pregnant?

Ali says -

Itís possible for you to get pregnant without having sexual intercourse if,†for example:

  • sperm get into your vagina†Ė†for example, if you or your partner have semen or pre-ejaculate on your fingers and touch your vagina
  • your partner ejaculates near your vagina
  • your partnerís erect penis comes into contact with your body near your vagina

The risk of getting pregnant in this way is very low because sperm can only live for a short time outside of the body. However, if youíre not planning a pregnancy, itís important to know that itís possible to get pregnant in this way.† For more information you should visit the NHS choices website here.

Also bear in mind that as well as a risk of pregnancy there is a risk of contracting a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) if you have not correctly used contraception

Sexually Transmitted Infections can be transmitted by Sexual Intercourse and other forms of sexual activity. Some STIs can also be passed on simply by touching the infected area on another person then touching yourself.

I would advise you to seek emergency contraception advice and support to manage the risk you have taken as there is a chance you could be pregnant or have caught an STI.† Seeking support from a sexual health professional will help you to explore the best form of contraception for you and your partner.† With the right help you will be confident to can keep yourself safe in the future.† Remember if you feel mature enough to have a sexual relationship it is important you are able to make informed decisions and manage any associated risks.

If you go to the iCash website it will advise you of your nearest sexual health clinic.† You should do this asap as the morning after pill (medication that can prevent an unwanted pregnancy after unprotected sex) needs to be taken within 72 hours.† Alternatively you can go to your GP for the morning after pill and advice about the risk of STIís and future contraception.† As you are based in the Ely area you could also seek sexual health advice and support from Young People's charity Centre 33. † You can view the Centre 33 website here.
