Hey I'm from India and we do not really have any sex ed here in our schools. I'm really freaking out since the past one week. I masturbated and accidentally had got some semen on my hand.I had washed my hands with water but no soap. And later on when i held my girlfriends hand (say after 6 hours) can the sperm transfer from my hand to her hand? She fingered herself later on(after about 10 hours). So is there any chance of her getting pregnant from the sperm which transferred to her hands? Please reply soon as i'm really nervous and i have no knowledge regarding this. Sorry if you find this stupid.

Welcome to Scarleteen, gupta.

First, take a deep breath. Try to dial the anxiety down a notch, okay? There is no reason to be freaking out, and we'll help you figure out why.

I'll start by linking you to this thread, which sums up all the information you need to find out why you have nothing to worry about:

Thanks Joey! So what I have understood is that when the semen dries, sperm loses it's ability to fertilize an egg. Is that right?
And is there any chance of my girlfriend getting pregnant from what i just described. I read the articles but still i need some sort of satisfaction.

Hi guptakaran159,

Perhaps you might want to try this article that I wrote and put up on the website not too long ago.

Who's Afraid of Sperm Cells

Hopefully it will help answer any more questions that you might have, and quell any more fears present. [Smile]
