I seem to be just having too many scares.

So my relatives were in from town and this morning I needed to go to the washroom really bad, so I ran in and the seat was up. I didn't really bother so I squatted and went. I accidentally lost balance and sat in whatever fluid was on the rim of the toilet.

What's freaking me out is that my cousin (male) used the washroom and I don't know what he did. He said he just went pee, but I don't think anyone would admit to masturbating.

It all happened so quickly that I don't remember if I my vulva area had contact with it or it was somewhere else. All I remember is that I wiped and then showered.

I'm hoping at worst it was just urine, but if it wasn't? ): Should I be worried about this? My boyfriend said I was overthinking this because I showered and wiped but I still can't help feeling worried about it.

What is it that you are worried about, and scared of, with these things?

I'm worried that I could get pregnant from semen on the toilet even though I wiped and showered right after because I touched it either vulva or not. I want to be on the safe side since I don't remember, i'm worried that my vulva touched it. I wanted to know if this is a risk, and if I should be worried.


Just pregnancy overall scares me, because I realize i'm too young and I still have post secondary to attend. I still have a lot of goals.

Okay.

These aren't ways people do or can become pregnant.

Here's more on that for you, so you can have some basic facts: Where DID I Come From? A Refresher Course in Human Reproduction

If after getting that information, you still feel this way, then you can know these are irrational fears.

Okay, I have read it over. For most part, I have calmed down. Just once more, I should be okay? Just because I may have accidentally sat on ejaculatory fluids, since it was on a toilet seat and right after I wiped with toilet paper and showered?

It says If semen comes in direct contact with a vagina, pregnancy can occur.

What direct contact means, in this context, is fluid transfer during contact between genitals. Not semen that's hanging out on an object. Like Heather said, what you're imagining is not how pregnancy can happen.

There's no reason to believe that your period won't come as usual. Though we have no way to know for sure, since unfortunately we're not telepathically linked to your uterus [Wink]
