My boyfriend and I were fooling around the other night.. we both had underware and shorts on. We pretty much noticed right away when he ejaculated.. and got up immediately. I noticed I was wet on my shorts... but not even near my vagina. I think I touched it absentmindedly and then proceeded to do some other things, like pull my hair up and pick up some random objects around the room. About 5 minutes later, I went to the bathroom. I cant remember if I touched the wet spot again, but I wiped myself after going pee.

Can sperm be viable on clothing after 5 minutes? And if I touched it, was there any chance the sperm could have come in contact with my vagina when I wiped myself? I was on day 18 of my cycle when this happened. So I dont think there is even any chance of getting pregnant, but I just need my mind put at rest.

HI skyblue9876 and welcome to scarleteen!

Have you seen this thread yet? If not, can you please take a look, then come back with any questions or concerns you still have?


Afraid you might be pregnant? Please read this first.

Thanks. And just to clarify, a person can potentially be fertile on any day of her cycle. There are some days when a person is more fertile than others, but there are no days when someone is guaranteed not to be fertile.

Yes! That did help a lot.

But I did notice that it said, "once the semen is dry" there is no possible chance of transfer.

It was not dry, but it definitely was not soaking wet. Even thought I touched it.. it couldn't be passed when I was wiping myself?

It really takes direct contact for there to be any significant risk of pregnancy. Once semen or pre-ejaculate gets on clothes, or on hands, it really becomes practically impossible for it to create a pregnancy risk. Think of it this way: if it has to make any stops between penis and vagina, the sperm in the semen really isn't going to be viable any longer.
