So last wednesday I gave my boyfriend a handjob, and he ejaculated. I got a little bit of the cum on my finger, just enough to make it a little slick. About 90 minutes later, I put that same finger that had had the cum on it inside my vagina just to check if I was still wet. We didn't have sex, I'm still a "virgin", as in no-penis-in-vagina-penetration.

Also, I'm on birth control pills and have been on them for around 6 months now, and I take them faithfully. I figure I'm just being paranoid, because I know girls will have full on sex and their boyfriends will ejaculate inside them and they won't get pregnant when they're on birth control pills, and here I am worried because I stuck my finger in me more than an hour after getting a small amount of cum on it.

I guess I'm just wondering if sperm is able to live for a while after being exposed to the air and whatnot?

Basically, should I be worried about possible pregnancy from putting my finger in me for a second?

Sperm dies within around 15 minutes of being exposed to air. Beyond that, there really is no pregnancy risk from inserting a finger that's been exposed to ejaculate into your vagina: unless you are directly inserting a handful of fresh ejaculate, there is no risk of pregnancy from 'transferring' ejaculate.

And if you have been on the pill for more than one month, and are taking it as directed, you don't need to be worried about pregnancy risks, anyway. The failure rate of the pill with perfect use is less than 1%.

Wow thank you, that's a relief. I figured I was just being paranoid, but it really makes me feel a lot better to hear some facts and someone else telling me not to worry. Thank you very very much.
