My girlfriend wants a baby very much but I don't want to raise kids. Yesterday we had manual sex. I ejaculated and wiped the semen with tissue. My girlfriend took that tissue and said she would throw it away. Now I'm a bit worried because I didn't watch her throwing the tissue away. Is it possible at all for her to use the sperm on the tissue to impregnate herself?

I'd add that if you're concerned that your girlfriend might be trying to get pregnant and it's not something the two of you have agreed on, that's something you really need to discuss with her.

Thanks. I read the post just now. My understanding after reading the post is that it's NOT possible for her to impregnate herself no matter what she did with the tissue because the sperm on the tissue was not viable as it's rubbed, absorbed, etc. Am I correct? I don't trust my girlfriend, so I think I probably should break up with her.

Yes, that's correct.

I think trust is vitally important in any relationship. If you can't trust her and are unable or unwilling to work to rebuild that trust, there's not much point staying in the relationship.

I'm not sure how old you are or how serious your relationship with your girlfriend is, but having very different wants with regards to things like having children can tear people apart in the long run. You might be better off finding a partner whose desire for children is better aligned with yours.

That said, there's no reason you can't talk to your current partner about how her want for a baby is making you feel and seeing if you can't find some middle ground.

All the best,

Marion
