There is absolutely no way that you got pregnant fro the situation you describe.

Take a look at this article to get a better idea of how a pregnancy can be created:

What you are describing does NOT present any kind of pregnancy risk.

No one needs to worry about pregnancy from indirect touching of maybe-once-semen like this. Seriously. That's just not how pregnancy can occur.

Do you feel pretty filled in on how pregnancy does happen? If not, we'd be glad to give you some links and explain it to you here.

Okay, but the "what if" is never a question when you're talking about things like towels. In order for pregnancy to happen, there not only usually needs to be direct body-to-body contact, but sperm NEED the fluid they come in in semen both to survive and to create a pregnancy.

Okay? [Smile]

You don't need to be sorry! Just wanted to make sure you understood so you didn't have to panic unduly.

I'm not sure what you mean by "hurting the baby." However, there's no medical precedent for "hurting babies" of those with cancer or survivors of cancer. Sometimes it's advised that people getting cancer treatment who become pregnant terminate their pregnancies, as some treatments can cause fetal abnormalities that CAN harm a fetus, but in no case can anyone make those decisions for you.
