Hello, I have a question:

My cycle is usually between 26 and 30 days in length. On the 6th day of my period (my period lasts 7 days), I gave my boyfriend a "hand job". He was, however, wearing underwear and Dickies work pants. I don't think his pants were ever wet from pre-seminal or seminal fluid. For the sake of the question, let's assume they were moist. After, we sat and talked for about 45 minutes, then I proceeded to use to restroom where I washed my hands with liquid soap and warm water before I went the bathroom. When I was wiping after I urinated, my hand slipped a bit from the toliet paper, so I might have touched my "area". Am I at a risk for pregnancy? And let's say I had been ovulating at the time, would I be at a risk?

Thanks.

No, this doesn't sound like something that could cause a pregnancy. Sperm are really frail and die within minutes. Sperm need semen to live, and once semen is dry, there's no way for them to stay alive. Considering that there was a gap of 45 minutes between the hand job and going to the restroom, and the fact that you washed your hands before using the restroom, there is no possible way the sperm could be alive, so there's no pregnancy risk there. This is from the "Pregnancy Risk Assessment: Oral or Manual Sex" page on Scarleteen:

If you DID wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after getting semen on your hands, then you have NO risk of pregnancy.
Here's the link to the page:

Hope this helped. [Smile]

Thank you for your help!


I am just wondering if I could also have Heather's input...

Today my breasts have been very tender, and they feel more tender than usual. My last period was on april 17th. on may 7th i took a pregnancy test because they've been so tender. was it too earlier to take the test? this has been my only "risk" of pregnancy.

And I also ask if I took the test too early because on the box it says it can detect the hCG hormone 5 days before a missed period; however, your site says that 2 weeks from the risk--when I took it it was 2 weeks and 2 days from my risk.

You did not have a pregnancy risk. Sperm cannot get through two layers of clothing. Even if they could, they die within around 15 minutes of exposure to air. And if any die-hard superheroes had made it all the way to you washing your hands that would have done them in for sure.

If you took the test at more than 2 weeks after your 'risk', you can be sure that the result was accurate.
