i am 21 years old. my boyfriend and i were making out and i was giving him a hand job for the first time. he helped me through it and after he came, he gave me one.. and i am almost 100 percent sure that his hands were wiped before he fingered me but not washed. can i get pregnant because of this? Also, the nest day i was giving him a hand job and he did not ejaculate but pre orgasmic liquid came out, after that.. my hands were dry but without washing them i fingered myself.. can these events get me pregnant? please answer urgently because if yes then i will need to take the emergency contraceptive pill and i am really scared about taking it because of the side effects.

Hi Malik,
There is no pregnancy risk here.

Here are some articles I think you should take a look at, to learn more:

Also, may I ask why exactly you would be so worried about emergency contraception's side effects? Just want to make sure that whatever you are worried about is based on actual fact...
It is definitely true that it can take a toll on your body, and some women can feel cramps and/or ill as a result for a day or two. Is that all you meant, or more?

i mean can it cause any permanent damages, like any problem in getting pregnant in the future?
and another thing, my period date was 4th of october and these events were dated 20th and 21st october, and i think that this is the most fertile time, so its sure that i wont get pregnant right? or should i take the pill just in case?

No, there is no permanent damage- or actually any length of what I would call "damage," as side-effects are generally passing symptoms of some kind.

I am not sure what information you have been given about birth control and emergency contraception, but if your worry about "permanent damage" came from a similar source, I would recommend you read up more on these two things. So, emergency contraception actually contains the one of same hormones found in birth control. This is a hormone that already exists naturally within the body.

Malik, what details in the situation you've described have led to your pregnancy worry? How and where do you see how fertile you are coming into play, after reading my initial response?

We do not generally answer pregnancy risk questions, because all the information most people (including you) need for their particular question is answered in those articles I linked you to. I suggest you do read them, and here is one about emergency contraception too:

i have read those links but i am not convinced. i just worried that what if the cum had not dried before i touched myself.. although my fingers and his fingers were not wet when we touched me but im scared that what if any sperm was left on our fingers and that travelled into my vagina?
im sorry to bother you.. but im really confused and 72 hours get over tonight and i need to know if i should have that pill or not and im worried incase i get any reaction from that pill. i know there might be a light fever and vomit, thats ok.. but what if im allergic to the contents?
please i really need to know that if there is no remote pregnancy risk at all then its better for me not to take the pill right? so should i not worry and relax? ill definitely not conceive right?

Hi Malik,
It's really not possible for sperm to travel in the way you're describing. Sperm don't survive very long in the open air, and they don't just transfer from place to place. They need the properties of semen in order to move. Another way of looking at it is that if the semen makes any stops between a penis and vagina, such as on your hands or a piece of clothing, the sperm can't then move from there to the vagina, even if the area where they landed touches the vulva (outside of the vagina) or inside the vagina itself.

I think you might find this article helpful in understanding more of how reproduction works and just what exactly is required for it to occur.

The emergency contraceptive pill is hormonal; I've never heard of anyone having a severe reaction to it.
