Hi Scarleteen,

Just want to start out by saying that this is a fantastic website. I have found this website and information, combined with your positive and upbeat attitudes, so helpful and reassuring at times.

I wanted to run my situation by you and hear your opinion on it:

My girlfriend and I had sex the other night. Before we did, I went to put on the condom. It was dark so I accidentally slipped it on inside out at first. Realising my mistake, I turned it the right way round and started putting it back on.

However, I realised that it was likely any Pre-Cum I might have had might have touched the outside of the condom when it was inside out, so I discarded the condom and opened a new one, put it on the right way around and then proceeded from there.

What Im worried about, is whether or not it is possible, that pre cum could have transferred from the outside of the first condom, to my fingers and then onto the outside of the second condom when I put it on.

A few extra details:
- I hadn't ejaculated and had urinated multiple times before this episode.
- There was most likely extremely minimal Pre-Cum on my penis. Most of it had been absorbed into my boxers before I took them off.
- I have no way of remembering whether or not my fingers touched the part of the condom where the pre-cum may have landed.
- I can't remember, between putting taking off the old condom and putting on the new, whether or not I wiped my hands at any time (not sure if opening the new condom packet counts).
- My finger certainly wasn't soaked or dripping with pre-cum. Just a bit wet from the lubricant off the first condom. So I have no idea if my finger was wet enough/suitable environment for any sperm.

So what do you think? Can Pre-Cum (if there was any) have transferred from my Penis to the first condom, then to my fingers, then to the outside of the second condom?

Thank you for any help or advice you can give me [Smile]

Thanks so much! [Smile]

I see no cause for concern here about pregnancy. You did the right thing with using a new condom -- good thinking, and nice catch! -- and this kind if indirect transfer, especially when we're not even talking about ejaculate, just isn't how pregnancy happens.
