Can I Get Pregnant If...? The Morning After

new! Dec 08, 2010

We get a lot of questions from readers about whether something they did could have gotten them pregnant. Here we'll do our best to answer some of these questions. Note, this is not medical advice. We've tried to err, in our judgments, on the side of caution. (If you disagree with our judgments, use the form below to let us know why.) You, too, should always err on the side of caution when having sex. Better to be safe than sorry.

Here are our "Sperm Ratings":

It's probably impossible
you'll get pregnant

Extremely small chance
of getting pregnant

Small chance but enough
to raise some concerns
     

There's some risk here,
but it's still probably unlikely

There is a real risk
of getting pregnant

You have reason to
be seriously concerned

Warning: If you think you may be pregnant, get a home pregnancy test and follow the directions or go to a doctor. If you have had unprotected sex within the past couple of days, and are concerned about becoming pregnant, you can consider emergency contraception (morning after pill). The morning after pill can be purchased online and is available at many pharmacies..


I gave my boyfriend a blowjob and I swallowed, then we kissed. About 30 minutes later he ate me out. Could he have had any semen in his mouth that could have impregnated me?
Anonymous, U.S.

There was a case a couple of years ago where a woman blew a guy, held his sperm in her mouth, spat it out and then used it to inseminate herself. Incredibly, the man was held responsible for paternity and paying child support. So, sperm can survive, at least for a while, in the mouth. However, in your case, I would say the odds are against conception. First of all, you swallowed, so most of the sperm went down to your stomach where it would be digested and destroyed. When you kissed your boyfriend, you might have transferred some semen back to his mouth, but it's not like you were snowballing. Finally, there are digestive enzymes in the mouth that would be working on the sperm and breaking it down, so there's a good chance that after 30 minutes, any surviving swimmers would be knocked out of commission.

I had anal sex during my period and let the guy ejaculate in me with no condom. Can I get pregnant from this?
Emily, PA

It is possible to get pregnant through anal sex. First, if his aim is a little off and he bumps your pussy with his boner while he's trying to get it in your butt, sperm from his precum could get in your vagina. Afterwards, some of his ejaculate could have dripped near your vagina when he pulled out. And some of his spunk could ooze out of your asshole and onto your vaginal area. Or maybe you pooped his cum out afterwards. In either case, some viable sperm could get close enough to your vagina to get in, swim up, and impregnate you. The fact that it was during your period makes it less likely, though, that you got pregnant. Wearing a condom during butt sex is always a good idea, not just to protect against STDs, but for birth control.

My boyfriend wants to suck on my nipples and kiss them. Is that okay? We don't want to have sex. We're not into it that much. He just wants to suck on my nipples. Can I get pregnant if he does this to me? I'm scared. I don't want to get pregnant. What should I do?
Anonymous, U.S.

No, you will not get pregnant if your boyfriend sucks on your nipples. There is absolutely no way nipple-sucking can get you pregnant. However, you should have some condoms on hand just in case. I know he says he just wants to suck your titties, but one thing leads to another, and the next thing you know he'll have his hand down your pants, and then he'll be asking if he can put his thing in you - just this once, just the tip. And that will get you pregnant, so be prepared with some rubbers and make sure he puts one on if things get out of hand.

I often like to eat out my girlfriend's pussy. Can she get pregnant from that?
Anonymous, U.S.

No, your girlfriend cannot get pregnant from you performing oral sex on her. Just be sure that if you get turned on while you're eating her out and you ejaculate, you don't get cum anywhere near her pussy and clean up carefully.

Sperm Rating:


If I masturbate and cum on my hands, wash my hands, and then four to five hours later finger my girlfriend, is it possible that sperm residue can get my girlfriend pregnant?
Doug, U.S.

No, there's pretty much no chance of her getting pregnant that way. If you wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, you've probably eliminated or killed most of the sperm right there. And in the remaining 4 to 5 hours, any residual sperm would dry up and die. Sperm need a warm, moist place with a specific pH to survive. In general they don't survive very long outside of the body, and once semen is dry, the sperm are dead.

My girlfriend and I were having sex. The condom broke but I hadn't cum yet. Some stuff might have leaked out. Can she be pregnant?
Darrin, Nova Scotia

Yes, she could get pregnant from sperm in the fluid that comes out of your penis before you cum (the precum). This fluid doesn't contain a lot of sperm, but it may be possible to get her pregnant. Of course, the chances of pregnancy would be greatly increased if it had been a condom full of your cum that broke. As it is, the possibility she was inseminated is slim but present.

My boyfriend and I were dry humping without our clothes and his penis slipped inside. He wasnít wearing a condom, but I still have my hymen. Can I get pregnant?
Moira, U.S.

You don't say whether or not he came, but I'm assuming he just "accidentally" slipped it in and then pulled out before ejaculating. Anyway, if that was the case, yes, there may be some small chance you could get pregnant. Even if he didn't cum, if he was turned on and his penis was oozing precum, that fluid could contain enough sperm to get you pregnant. Whether or not your hymen is intact has nothing to do with it. Sperm are small enough to get past an intact hymen. Next time dry hump with your clothes (or a condom) on.

My girlfriend and I had sex last week and I used a condom and pulled it out of her right on time. I think, not 100% positive, but I think I touched the condom and possibly touched the cum, and in the second round I used my finger but I never put it inside of her completely. Also, it was exactly the day after her period. So I don't think that she has become pregnant but it might be a slight chance. Right? How can I prevent this from happening? Can she use pills? Patches? Anything to avoid this from happening?
Anonymous, Canada

There's not much chance that she could become pregnant. If you washed your hands after disposing of the condom, you're pretty much in the clear. But even if you didn't if the cum dried on your hands before you touched her, there wouldn't be any live sperm in it. The timing (right after her period) also makes it much less likely that she would get pregnant, but theoretically it is possible for a woman to conceive at any point in her cycle. If there was a serious chance that an accidental insemination occurred (like if a condom full of cum broke inside her), she could take the morning-after pill. But in this situation it's not necessary. Just be sure you wash your hands next time.

Could sucking my boyfriend's dick and swallowing his semen make me pregnant?
Kim, U.S.

Absolutely not. There is no connection between the digestive system and your reproductive system. When you swallow cum, it goes straight into your stomach, where digestive juices kill the sperm quickly. You can only get pregnant from sperm getting in your vagina, so as long as the cum doesn't get anywhere near your pussy, you're safe. Don't wipe your mouth afterwards and then touch yourself.

My boyfriend came up to visit me at college for the weekend. I had just started my period two days before he came up. We hadn't each other in a while and we were both really horny, so we made love. After he was done, he pulled out of me and the condom was still inside of me! Will I get pregnant from this?
Anonymous, Pennsylvania

It depends on whether any cum spilled out of the condom or whether there was some on his penis and he brushed against you when he pulled out. If you did get some semen on, in, or near your vagina, there is a chance you could get pregnant. The fact that you were on your period makes it less likely that you will get pregnant, but it's no guarantee. Next time have him hold the base of the condom as he pulls out.

Me and my boyfriend were making out and I started to jack off his dick. According to him he had precum on his penis, and after we were done I didn't wash my hands. I got home like 3 hours after I jacked him off and I played with myself. But I didnít wash my hands until after I touched myself. Can I get pregnant?
Tatiana, Miami U.

There's pretty much no chance you would get pregnant from masturbating with jizz on your hands that's been dried for three hours. Sperm can't survive outside the body for very long, and once cum dries, the sperm is dead and they don't rehydrate.

I didn't trust my girlfriend's vagina but I used my penis to brush her pussy. I had some precum on my willy. Could she get pregnant due to this practice?
James, Alabama

Yes, she could get pregnant from you brushing your wet willy against her pussy. Precum can contain a small amount of sperm, and if the fluid gets into her vagina, the sperm can begin their heroic journey to her ovum and knock her up.

Sperm Rating:


If a girl has sex during her period, can she still get pregnant?
Anonymous, U.S.

Yes, it can happen. A woman can be fertile for about a week during her menstrual cycle, near the time of ovulation, and if her cycle is irregular for some reason, that fertile period could fall during or shortly after her period. Couple that with the fact that sperm can live in a woman's body for up to five days (according to some sources), and there's some possibility that the time the sperm is hanging out and the time she's fertile could overlap.

My girlfriend and I just finished sex, and when I took the condom of my fingers came in contact with the sperm. I dried my hand with a napkin, but about 5 minutes later I fingered her. Is there any chance she could get pregnant? My hand was dry after I cleaned it with the napkin but is there any chance?
Chris, California

Sperm are microscopic, so even if it looked like you wiped all the cum off, there may still have been some on your hands. In general, once cum dries up, the sperm are dead, because sperm need a wet environment to survive. But if it was just a few minutes, there's a chance some could have lived, and if you stuck your fingers inside her, they might score a home run. It's a very, very long shot, but not completely impossible.

Can you get pregnant from masturbating in the shower?

No. Having sex in the shower, sure. But masturbating? No. Not even if your boyfriend took a shower in there before you and masturbated too.

If I used a condom and blew in it then an hour later I had sex without one on, could my girlfriend get pregnant?
Anonymous, U.S.

Yes, she could get pregnant, not from sperm left on the outside of your dick from the first round, but from sperm left in your dick - i.e., a small remainder of the load you blew that staying inside your dick hole (your urethra) and could continue to leak out. Plus, if you came in her again without a condom, your ejaculate would have less sperm in it, but it would still have some - enough to get her pregnant, definitely.

Can I get pregnant if I'm on the last week of my birth control pills and I didn't use a condom, but my boyfriend came on a towel?
Anonymous, Norway

If you mean you were on the last week of a cycle of birth control pill and you started the new series as scheduled, there should be no problem and no chance of pregnancy. If you mean you were on your last week before quitting birth control pills, you still probably aren't in any danger of becoming pregnant, as it takes your body a while to get back to its regular menstrual cycle, more than the few days that sperm can survive in your body.

Is it possible to get pregnant if my boyfriend wipes pre-ejaculate off his penis, wipes his hands, then fingers me?
Anonymous, U.S.

If there's still some moisture left on his hands from the fluid, yes, there's a small chance there could be some sperm on his hands from the precum. Have him wash his hands with soap and water to be absolutely sure.

If your boyfriend cums in a hot tub with you in it, are you at risk of getting pregnant?
Amanda, U.S.

If he didn't come inside you, don't worry about it. The chlorine and the temperature of the water will kill any sperm in his spunk before it could possibly get into you.

Can my girlfriend get pregnant by grinding (and not going in) if I do not cum?
M., UWG

If you're talking about dry humping with clothes on, there's no danger. Sperm can't get through clothes, unless it's really thin underwear or something it can soak through. As long as the fluid doesn't get through, don't worry. If you're dry humping without clothes and you're pressing your dick against her pussy, yes, there might be a chance she could get pregnant if your precum comes in contact with her vagina.

Me and my girlfriend had sex and when I first put it in her, I didnít have a condom on. I didnít feel as if I was going to come and even before I felt like I was, I took it out and put a condom on. Can she still get pregnant?
Anonymous, Scotland

Even if you didnít feel like you were close to climax, your dick still could have been oozing a little bit of fluid. So yes, she could get pregnant if there was sperm in your precum while you were inside her without a rubber.

Sperm Rating:


My girlfriend is really afraid of getting pregnant, even though we don't have sex. Sheís afraid that some of my cum, or even precum could get inside her and get her pregnant. What are the chances of this happening?
Mike, California

It depends on what youíre doing when you ďdonít have sex.Ē If you are ejaculating on or near her vagina, or rubbing your uncovered cock on her pussy, it could be possible for your sperm to find their way into her vagina. If either one of you is touching her pussy with hands that have wet semen or precum on them, that could also introduce sperm into her vagina. If your dick isnít getting anywhere near her vagina, and if youíre careful to clean up all the cum and wash your hands after you ejaculate, there should be no worries.

Sperm Rating:


Can you get pregnant from precum? If you can what is the percent of there being a chance that you can?
Ericka, Georgia

Itís impossible to tell exactly how much sperm is in precum, so itís hard to say what the chances are that you can get pregnant. Itís also impossible to give the chance of conception as a percentage, because a woman getting pregnant also depends on many other factors, like where she is at in her menstrual cycle. Because there is not a lot of sperm in precum, this cuts the odds way down versus a full load of ejaculate. But it only takes one sperm to fertilize an egg.

I fucked my girlfriend and then I blew my load on her ass. Can she get pregnant or not.
Michael, U.S.

If you jizzed on her ass and one of you cleaned it up carefully afterwards, she should be in the clear. If some dripped down her crack and onto her pussy, or got rubbed down there when she cleaned up, there could be trouble. If you were fucking her without a condom before you pulled out and shot your load, thereís some chance she could be pregnant from sperm in your precum.

My girlfriend and I had just finished having sex. I took off the condom and wiped my penis off pretty thoroughly with a nearby towel. She wanted more though, and after only a few more minutes we're having sex again but without a condom. I didn't come, but is it possible she still got pregnant from when I came before, even if I wiped myself off?
Anonymous, U.S.

She could get pregnant, but probably not from residual cum on your penis. That was probably dried up by the time you had sex, and the sperm was dead. But since you had very recently ejaculated, there were no doubt some live sperm still hanging out just inside the opening of your pee-hole, and these could easily have snuck out, even though you didnít come again. It probably wasnít a lot of sperm, so itís hard to say what the chances are, but thereís some possibility.

Sperm Rating:


Me and my girlfriend were messing around. We are both virgins but I kinda stuck my dick in her just a little ways. Is there anyway she can get pregnant? Her cherry isnít popped. Do I have anything to worry about?
Bob, U.S.

Well, if you stuck it in, technically, you may have popped her cherry. But thatís beside the point. She could get pregnant from sperm in your precum, even if you just kind of rubbed it around the outside. Sperm can get past an intact hymen. However, chances are sheís not pregnant, because any amount of sperm present would have been very small.

My friend and I took the next step and had intercourse without a condom, and I was extremely nervous. Both her and I were virgins. Will she get pregnant if I had my cock in like 1/4th of the way, but still inside her for 40 seconds? She also washed her vagina out immediately after intercourse.
Anonymous, U.S.

If you came inside her, yes, she could definitely get pregnant, even if you were only in one-quarter of the way. And washing out the vagina, or douching, after intercourse is not an effective birth-control method. If you didnít ejaculate inside her, there is still some possibility she could get pregnant from sperm in your precum.

This has not happened to me, but I am curious. It is a rather specific question. When I start fooling around with my girlfriend, I obviously produce pre-cum. Now I know that it has the same properties as a regular cum and can get a girl pregnant. But here is my question: Suppose there is pre-cum on my boxers. My girlfriend, wearing nothing, is grinding her crotch on mine while we make out. Is there a chance this could result in pregnancy? If so, are there good odds? Does the semen lose potency as a result of the "cloth barrier"? I'm sure that if the answer to the first question is yes, the odds are rather low. But I am very curious because I have been in this sort of situation but I have pushed her away a little bit, afraid of the consequences.
Anonymous, Pennsylvania

Precum can have sperm in it, but not very much, so that cuts the odds down a lot right there. With the added layer of fabric, it cuts down the odds even more. You also haven't penetrated. The chance is probably very, very small, but we're not willing to put it quite at zero.

My girlfriend and I had sex and I was using a condom. I finished and took the condom off and lay there for a while (for like 15-20 minutes) and we started again without the condom. Then I stopped right away after starting and put on a condom. Is she going to be pregnant?
Jerry, U.S.

After cum has been sitting in my dick from a previous sex session (with protection) Ė letís say for about an hour - is it still possible for my girlfriend to get pregnant if I put it in without the condom?
Anonymous, U.S.

Yes, if sperm can survive in her body for 72 hours or more, they can survive inside the tip of your cock for an hour or less. Leftover sperm can ooze out the end of your dick if you put it in again without ejaculating. Of course, itíll be a small amount compared to a full load, but thereís still a risk of pregnancy. If you just put it in and pulled it out, that cuts down your chances somewhat, as opposed to putting it in and really fucking, which could get more sperm flowing out.

Last week me and my girlfriend had sex for the first time. The first time, I used a condom with spermicide, and then we had sex a second time with another spermicide condom. Then yesterday we were having sex with another spermicide condom and it fell off but I realized it before I had an orgasm and I pulled out. But after that she gave me head and I came, and then she started rubbing her vagina on my dick. Is it possible that through any of those things my girlfriend might have gotten pregnant?
Willy, Florida

Iíd say you were probably doing fine until she started rubbing her pussy on your dick. The first time your rubber came off, thereís a possibility you got a small amount of sperm in her vagina from your precum. But if that was the case, the spermicide was in your favor, and the chances of pregnancy were still pretty small. But then she gave you head. Probably there wasnít a whole lot of semen left on your dick if she swallowed and cleaned you off with her mouth, and semen dries on the skin pretty quickly anyway, killing the sperm. But there might have been some cum still oozing from your dick, and if that found its way into her vagina, it could get her pregnant. The risk is greater if she was rubbing the tip of your cock in her vagina, as opposed to just grinding her pussy lips or clit against your cock.

My girlfriend and I don't have sex (intercourse-wise) but we do the oral, hand jobs, fingering, etc. She's incredibly worried (always) about being pregnant. We're never naked together, and I always do her first, then we both go clean up (with hot water and soap). Then maybe half an hour later and she gets me off, then she cleans up again with hot water/soap, without ever touching herself again. Is it possible for her to get pregnant?
Jimmy, U.S.

No, with the routine youíve described, and all those precautions and washing, she will not get pregnant. She wonít get pregnant from you giving her oral or fingering her. And she wonít get pregnant from giving you oral or a hand job. Soap and water should wash away any semen she gets on her hands and kill the sperm, so even if she did touch herself, sheíd probably be safe. You have nothing to worry about.

My girlfriend is on birth control and I want to have unprotected sex with her and bust inside her. Do I still have high risk of getting her pregnant?
Bryan, U.S.

There is not a high risk of you getting her pregnant. The risk is pretty low if sheís on birth control, but there still is some risk. Birth control pills are a pretty reliable contraceptive method if taken exactly as directed. The trouble is, some women might miss one here and there, and that leads to a failure rate of about 3%.

I didnít have sex with my boyfriend but he may have cum on me down there, is it possible for me to get pregnant?
Anonymous, U.S.

If he ejaculated on your pussy, yes it is possible for you to get pregnant. If any semen gets into the vaginal canal, or even in the vaginal opening, the sperm can swim up and impregnate you. Some semen might have dripped into your vagina or gotten in there when you wiped yourself off. It was probably only a small amount, but even a small amount could get you pregnant.

My boyfriend came inside me four times in one night, probably in the same hour. This was two months ago right after my period, but I got my period last month. Am I pregnant?
Anonymous, New Jersey

He came four times in one hour? OK, whatever. If youíve gotten your period, then no, youíre not pregnant. Getting your period means that the sperm missed their chance to fertilize your egg, and any danger of pregnancy is passed. Be careful, though; you may not always be so lucky.

My boyfriend pushed my panties around while fingering me. Then he took out his piece and tried to push it in but instead he just kept knocking. Could I be pregnant?
Anonymous, New York

If he didnít cum in or near your vagina, then there is only a small chance that you could get pregnant. Itís possible that he could have rubbed some precum from his cock into your vagina, and that could have a small amount of sperm in it. Sperm can swim all the way up your vagina, so it doesnít matter whether he was actually able to get his dick inside or not.

My girl and I were playing around with my wang and I eventually came, and quite normally, some got on my fingers and hands. I washed them later on, and maybe 20 minutes later, fingered her. Do you think I could get her pregnant? What about a worst case scenario where I didn't wash my hands and still fingered her 20 minutes later?
Anonymous, New York

In the worst case scenario, if you let 20 minutes elapse without washing your hands, the semen still would have air-dried on your skin and the sperm would have died. Once semen dries up, the sperm are dead and no longer viable. So even if you didnít wash your hands and fingered her, you wouldnít get her pregnant. Since you did wash up, you really have nothing to worry about.

No, you canít get pregnant from ingesting sperm. Iím sure you didnít have any on your fingers by the time you ate anyway.

Could I still become pregnant?
Anonymous, Ohio

Thereís a chance you could get pregnant, not because you were on the placebo portion of the birth control pill cycle, but because it was your first month taking them and your body may not have adapted yet to the hormones. On the other hand, there may be less of a chance than usual with a broken condom, since the birth control may have already kicked in. Washing your vagina out doesnít do much to cut the risk.

Sperm Rating:


If I got my period 3 days after having unprotected sex, is there any chance I can be pregnant?
Sarah, NYU

Itís extremely unlikely. Sperm can survive in the vagina for three days or more, but if youíre already bleeding, then that means they probably missed their chance to impregnate you. Freakish things have been know to happen, so I canít say with 100% certainty that you wonít get pregnant, but the chances are exceedingly slim.

My girlfriend and I always have used condoms, plus she is also on birth control. However, she is like 2 weeks past due for her period. She says she took a pregnancy test and it was negative, but I am still really nervous. Is it possible for women to "skip" a period and not be pregnant? And is there a chance she could be pregnant, even though we use condoms and birth control?
Chris, Boston

Women can miss a period for a variety of reason other than being pregnant, including stress, illnesses, dieting, exercise, and other factors that affect her health and hormone production. On the other hand, she could be pregnant and have a false negative on the pregnancy test, especially if it is a home test kit. If youíre really concerned and she still hasnít gotten her period, she can get a more reliable test from a doctor. However, given that you used two forms of birth control, I think itís more likely that her menstrual cycle is just out of whack.

If I have a mouth full of sperm and I put some on my fingers and stick them in my pussy, can I get pregnant?
Anonymous, U.S.

Yes, semen transferred from your mouth to your pussy on your fingers could still have live sperm in it, and that could get you pregnant. Although saliva will begin to break the sperm down, the mouth is warm and wet enough to allow sperm to survive for a while. If the semen had a chance to dry on your fingers before you put them in yourself, the sperm would have died, but if it was still wet, you were putting living sperm up there.

Can a girl get another girl pregnant?
Anonymous, Colorado

No, in order for pregnancy to occur, there has to be sperm involved. Sperm is made in a maleís testicles. So unless a girl has testicles on her somewhere (like if sheís a male-to-female transsexual or a ďchick with a dickĒ) she canít get another woman pregnant. Let me repeat: Lesbian sex will not get you pregnant.

If my boyfriend cums in me and I get up and use the bathroom real quick will it prevent me from getting pregnant?
Amy, U.S.

Peeing after sex is a good way to prevent urinary tract infections, because it flushes bacteria out of the urethra. But it will NOT do anything to keep you from getting pregnant. The urethra, the hole your pee comes out of, is totally separate from your vagina, so peeing doesnít wash any sperm out. And even if it did, it wouldnít help that much, In fact, if you rinsing your vagina out with water (douching) is not a good way to try to prevent pregnancy either. You need to use condoms or other forms of birth control if you don't want to get pregnant.

Me and my girlfriend were going at it, and I did not have a condom on (shame on me), but I pulled out long before anything even leaked out (I think). Anyhow, after about 2 weeks (mid-cycle) she had spotting for 3 days. Now itís been almost a month and she is late. Could she be pregnant, or could her cycle have been altered?
Anonymous, U.S.

Thereís possibility that she got pregnant from sperm in your precum. Some women experience pinkish or brownish spotting 6 to 14 after conception. This happens when the fertilized egg implants itself in the wall of the uterus. Since the timing is right, and she missed her next period, it sounds like she might be pregnant. She may just be having an irregular cycle, but she should get a pregnancy test immediately to be sure.

I have sex with my girlfriend multiple times during the day. We don't use condoms. I always pull out before I cum, but later on during the day we end up doing it again. I know there is a possibility of her getting pregnant, but is the possibility high?
Ray, New Jersey

Yes, there is a real possibility. Pulling out is a notoriously bad form of birth control. If you are having sex repeated times, and you have sex with her after having recently ejaculated, without wearing a condom, there are probably some live sperm left inside the tip of your penis that will get mixed with your precum and flow out.

If you didnít get much semen on your hand to begin with, and five minutes went by, it had probably dried up enough that there werenít any live sperm present. So there is very little chance that she would get pregnant.

First, of all, if you stuck it in, then technically she may not be a virgin anymore, but thatís beside the point. If your semen got on or near her vagina, even though your penis wasnít inside her, she could get pregnant. The sperm could still get into her vagina and swim up and impregnate her. But whether or not you blew your load on her pussy, you did stick your penis inside, and it probably had some fresh semen on it or inside the urethra. That could possibly get her pregnant.
