-- when i took a shower a few days ago, i used a towel that was already there, and my dad had used it like 4 or 5 hrs b4 that, and i just didn't feel like using another towel cause i didn't want to make more laundry that i'd have to do later lol... so im wondering can i get pregnant if i wiped down there with that towel to dry it off??? could i get pregnant by that???? PLEASE REPLY PLEASEEEEE!!! IM SOOO WORRIED THAT THIS HAPPENED, AND I DONT WANT TO HAVE TO WORRY UNTIL NEXT MONTH, because i just got over my period like 5 days ago (and this towel thing just happened like 2 days ago) HELP!

Sperm are fragile little creatures outside of the proper environment, and only survive about 20 minutes on surfaces such as towels. Also, in order to get pregnant by a towel, the person who used it before you would have to have ejaculated on it. Men don't just seep semen at all times.
The only way it's plausable is if someone ejaculated onto a towel, and someone else immediately used the towel on her genital region -- and even then it's almost impossible.
