I have a quick question -

If a guy ejaculates and the semen gets on your vulva (not near the entrance) and you wipe it off with your hand, is this any sort of risk to be worried about?

We are learning to use condoms, but we wind up using 3! Instead of using yet another one, I just touch him with my hand, but then when he ejaculates, I don't know how to protect myself from it getting on me. I'd prefer not to take the pill.

Yes, this does pose a risk. Perhaps not quite as high as if he had ejaculated inside your vagina, but still a significant risk. When did this happen? If it was within the last 120 hours, you still have a chance to get emergency contraception (the morning after pill) if you'd like. Otherwise, you'll need to wait about two weeks to take a pregnancy test.

Did you want to talk about how to use condoms correctly? They're incredibly effective when used properly, but if you're having trouble getting the hang of it we'd be happy to talk you through it.

I don't understand how this would pose a risk...

To be more specific - the semen mostly got on my mons pubis area...it might have touched the lips a little bit. But I'm pretty sure it could not have gotten inside the entrance.

Why would I still need to take EC?

Sorry - I misunderstood and thought he ejaculated closer to the vaginal opening. There probably is still a slight risk, but not nearly as high as I initially told you. EC isn't really necessary, in that case.

(My offer of talking about how to use condoms correctly still stands, by the way - if you want to go through it, just give a shout.)

Thank you.

I think we learned the hard way that we need to be a lot more careful when he ejaculates and where it goes.

I don't think I'm going to take EC. I hear it has some side effects. Plus I just went through a rather awful pregnancy scare, and I don't want to freak out all over again.
