Is it possible to get pregnant this way??

Could i have gotten my girlfriend pregnant? We where both fooling around and one thing led to another and I ejaculated on my chest. I proceeded to wipe my semen off with a cloth. And then i applied rubbing alcohol on my hands and i let it dry. After a couple of minutes i inserted my fingers in her vagina. Is it possible to get pregnant that way? We are both freaking out and we would really appreciate it if we could get an answer. Thanks!

Not! Fresh wet semen applied to her vagina would be a concern, but not what you describe. I hope your grinding did not include partial penetration and possible deposit of pre-cum containing semen. If she was not in the fertile window cycle days 8 thru 16 of 28 there would be no reason for worry. Early pregnancy signs often start about a week before the expected period.

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

FYI, Pregnancy can occur, only when ejaculation occurs within the vagina, and when the woman is within the fertile period of your cycle. This period is from day 12 to day 16 of a 28 day menstrual cycle.

In addition, Pregnancy can occur, only when ejaculation occurs within the vagina. Normally during sex, when ejaculation occurs inside the vagina, about 3 ml of semen (with upto 60 million sperms per ml) is deposited inside the vagina, and most of it is ejected (pushed deep) into the uterus, through the cervix. But only thousands of capacitated sperms enter the fallopian tube and only 300-500 reach the ovum, and only one of those sperms can fertilize the ovum.

Dry humping (sexual foreplay with cloths on), Genital rubbing or Mutual masturbation - including vaginal fingering , hugging or foreplay without involving vaginal penetration & ejaculation does not result in pregnancy.

In your case, since there was no ejaculation inside the vagina, there was no risk of pregnancy and you need not worry about pregnancy.

I hope this helps.
