Hey guys, would just like to clarify something.

When you say in your articles on pregnancy risk "direct contact with ejaculate" or "genital exposure to semen," I take it this refers to semen that comes directly from a penis onto a vulva. Am I correct in saying that if semen makes any kind of stop along the way, then pregnancy isn't an issue?
Thanks heaps

If so, then it is highly unlikely, yes.

For more, have a read through this, which can explain all of what is required for a realistic possibility of pregnancy: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/bodies/where_did_i_come_from_a_refresher_course_in_human_reproduction

That is correct, yes [Smile] If you want even more clarification, you can search our board history (the "search" link at the top under the "new topic" button) as quite a few people in the past have asked for more details on this front, so it's been explained in even more depth there!

Thanks for the response.
I have read through that article yes. I just thought I'd let it be known that in the situation I'm describing, the only possible contact may have a been a tiny amount of semen that leaked through the top of my underwear and ended up sitting just above the waistband (i'm a guy). I feel like even if her vulva came into contact with this area a bit later, it would be too indirect and without enough quantity

Well, that semen clearly made a stop along the way [Smile]

Hi, this is my first post and I don't know exactly if I'm posting in the correct place but if so I strongly apologize but I desperate for a correct answer. I've read plenty of your articles and post hundreds possibly thousands of times but I have found a direct answer. If someone has precum on the finger from readjusting himself then touches the side or near the vulva (not directly in or on the vulva) of a unshaved vagina could the sperm travel (swim) inside the vulva to cause pregnancy. When I was getting a massage, the therapist could have accidentally touched my vagina as he was placing the sheets on me. I don't know if he had precum on his fingers or not but there are a lot of weidos in this world. He may have a slight erection because he accidentally brushed against my had when i was asleep. I keep saying accidentally because I want to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Thanks
