me and my gf were messing around one night, she made me ejaculate on myself after i fingered her. we went upstairs.. matter of 5 minutes (give or take) for her to print something off. (another 5minute give or take)i notice i had sperm still on my stomach when i touched in with my finger.. i went into the bathroom and wiped off with a tissue. afterwards we went downstairs and i fingered her for 10 sec (stupidly not knowing that it was the same finger) .. the sperm was dry.. i learned sperm doesnt like to be dry. also she is experiencing back pain, frequent urination, swollen ankles. i was thinking.. she got a new bite and suck(waterbottle) and has been drinking a lot of water.. also a few cokes now and again(which makes you pee). swollen ankles might be explained.. b/c she plays soccer none stop.. or she is in a fitness class. back pain i have no idea. am i freaking out. not ready for a pregnancy

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sperms can stay alive for about 20 minutes even in dry condition. If pre-cum or semen was present on finger or has come in contact with vagina during genital contact, chances of pregnancy are possible (chances are high if she was during her fertile days at the time of sexual contact). The recent symptoms that she is having could suggest pregnancy possibility. Wait and watch for her periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
