ok I feel really embarrased with this but here goes, one day me and my girlfriend were messing around and I had on 2 layers of underwear and thin pants, and she had on two layers of underwear. We were imitating sex and we noticed that some semen got on her underwear, she said that she didn't see any on her vagina or get inside of it, but it still might've and she didn't see it I suppose, and just to be safe she washed out her vagina. Do you think it is still possible for her to get pregnant after this? Please reply as soon as possible

She'll be fine. You can relax. Wink

*edit*

.I shouldn't say that. I don't know for certain. But there's a 99.99999% chance that she'll be fine. You can almost definitely relax.

There. Laughing

i'm still nervous, but I guess it's natural, any other replys would help, and I have another question, even if the semen traveled through our clothes, does that mean that the sperm could survive through like 5 layers of thin clothing?

The sperm would have to enter her vagina. Having sperm outside the vagina leaves a very small chance of it getting in there. Having it go through all those layers of clothing reduces those chances even further.

Now if you had your penis inside of her, that'd be a different story. But the little guys can't go far on their own outside of a woman.

Hon, I promise you, you can (almost definitely) relax.

oh yeah and another question, if semen gets on the skin around the vagina, but not in it, can the sperm still climb up inside? I know this may be a ridiculous question but I just want to be sure, thanks

Almost definitely not. If it got on her inner vaginal lips, maybe - that's a small maybe. Outer lips or thighs, the probability would be almost nonexistant.

I think you're fine. Wink

and does the fact that she washed out her vagina improve the chances of her not getting pregnant? She didn't wash it out RIGHT away, she waited about 20 minutes, but sperm travel really slow right? And doesn't the fluid in the vagina kill sperm very easily?

If she had any sperm inside her vagina (which I doubt), putting anything like water or douche inside there might have either flushed the sperm out or pushed them further in. If she washed around her vagina (like her vaginal lips, legs, etc) she'll be okay.

The vaginal is acidic. Unless she's ovulating, her vagina would be a hostile environment for sperm.

Last time - you can relax. You're going to make yourself sick worrying over this. Chill out and wait for her period. Wink

that was pretty harsh.

You have been scared about things too, .Terra. There was absolutely no reason for you to jump on him.

There was a time when you werent so knowledgable too. Leave the kid alone, let him ask his questions.

How would you have felt if we'd treated you the same way when you came in here asking the questions *you* asked?

i didn't put it out on a public forum so it wouldn't matter lol

i don't think it was harsh, laura told him to just relax and that there was no reason for him to freak out, they had layers and layers of clothes on! at least my question made sense and i had an actual reason to think the things i did.

maybe.

but you also have to realize he may think his questions are reasonable as well.

Everyone deals with stress differently. You cant tell somebody *oh my god! just chill out!* when they are upset about something. That makes you look extremely insensitive.
Remember please, if you cant say something nice dont say anything at all.

OK
Not possible.

There is a VERY small chance of sperm travelling inside the vagina if it lands on the actually vaginal opening. (ie. the hole)

Sperm cannot travel through clothing or crawl.

The vagina is a relatively long passage. It's hard for sperm to get up there without a penis thrusting it in towards the cervix (opening to the womb)

Coming on your girlfriend but not inside her can DEFINITELY NOT GET HER PREGNANT

Sperm is fragile and does not live long outside of the body. The semen (fluid that carries sperm) itself would have to somehow flow up the woman's vagina to make her pregnant. This is nigh impossible.

Worry not!
