You have a pregnancy risk each and every time (pre)ejaculate comes in contact with your genitals. - Of course also, if that happens during manual sex.
It does not matter whether you are a "virgin" or not. Not ever girl who has not had vaginal intercourse yet has a hymen, and even if you have a hymen, it is by no means a "cover" of the vaginal opening or so.

If your boyfriend neither washed nor wiped nor in any other way cleaned his hands before he manually stimulated you (sperm can survive for half an hour on hands or sheets or the like), then yes, you might have had a pregnancy risk.

Check what ourWhat's The Risk? - Five Easy Pregnancy Risk Assessment Flow Charts say:

quote:
If your bare fingers or hands came into contact with pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) or semen (ejaculate, "cum"), either your own or your partner's, did you wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching your female partner's genitals or inserting your finger(s) into her vagina, or touching your own genitals/inserting your finger(s) into your vagina if you are female?

If you DID wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after getting pre-ejaculate or semen on your hands, then you have LOW to NO risk of pregnancy. It is possible that you may still have transmitted an STD, however.
If you DID NOT wash your hands, keep reading.
If your fingers or hands came into contact with pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) or semen (ejaculate, "cum"), either your own or your partner's, did you touch your female partner's genitals or insert your finger(s) into her vagina (or touch your own genitals/insert your finger(s) into your vagina if you are female) after wiping your hands off, but without washing them?

If you DID touch your or your partner's vulva or genitals after only WIPING pre-ejaculate or semen off of your hands, but without washing them thoroughly, you have LOW to MODERATE risk of pregnancy. See your health care provider for a pregnancy test and an STD screening.
If you DID NOT wipe off your hands, keep reading.
If your fingers or hands came into contact with pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) or semen (ejaculate, "cum"), either your own or your partner's, did you touch your female partner's genitals or insert your finger(s) into her vagina (or touch your own genitals/insert your finger(s) into your vagina if you are female) while there was still pre-ejaculate or semen on your fingers or hands?

If YES, then you have a MODERATE to HIGH risk of pregnancy. See your health care provider for a pregnancy test and an STD screening.


Hope this helps you evaluate your pregnancy risk better.

Yes, you have a pregnancy risk. If any prejaculate or ejaculate comes in contact with your genitals, you have a risk. If, while he was masturbating, he ejaculated, it probably got on his hand(s). That hand was near and in your vaginal opening. If he thouroly(sp?) washed his hands with anti-bacterial soap, your risk is lowered about 17% perhaps. But yes, you do have a pregnancy risk.

Alaska answered the question, there's no need to be redundant and answer it again. And it doesn't matter whether the soap's antibacterial or not -- where are you getting your statistic from?

Sorry to be redundant but plz people NEVER MAKE ANYTHING UP. Alot of people use this place for facts to there *important* questions...which leads me to a question, I have, since i started using these boards, trusted the experts here but can u verify any of this ie have you graduated from any schools stating you are in fact experts on the paticular subjects etc?

Thanks

Hi hiikus,
Miz Scarlet, founder of Scarleteen, has worked in the field of sexuality for quite a few years now, and her job outside ST that pays the bills deals with sexuality too. She has studied sexuality extensively and has written numerous works on sex education and sexuality. Also, Hanne, another sexpert on this site, also writes and lectures about sexuality.

The advocates on this board were chosen by Miz Scarlet, and all of the ST staff tries to keep our site as informative and up-to-date as possible. Much of the information stated on the boards reiterates articles written by Miz Scarlet, Hanne, and other staff members. You're always more than welcome to do your own research and find other resources to verify what we've said. There's tons of information from Planned Parenthood, your local health care professionals, libraries, etc, if you wish to have a second opinion on what our site said. Scarleteen's staff is a network of individuals who are pretty informed about sex, and we do check over each other's posts, so you're not just hearing from one staff member's opinion on Scarleteen.
About Scarleteen

Also, if you have any more questions about the staff of Scarleteen, there's a separate forum called "Staff Stuff"
