Hello! So instead of asking a question I would like to state what I think is the truth on a situation, and have it either be confirmed as true, or told that I am wrong. I have done a lot of reading on scarleteen and other sites so I can ease my nerves about getting pregnant. But I have made a conclusion, and here it is:

I have been worried about getting pregnant from my boyfriend fingering me with semen on his hands. But from my research I believe this to be true: in order or me to become pregnant this way the birth control pill I am on would have to fail somehow, and I would have to ovulate around the time the semen got into my vagina. On top of that there would have to be quite a bit of semen on my boyfriend's hands for the sperm to have any chance of fertilizing an egg, and it would have to be deposited into my vagina fairly quickly after ejaculation. So all in all, the chances are near nothing since so many things would have to go wrong at one time. Right? Is this an accurate statement?

Also, big thanks to scarleteen for al of the wonderful information you guys put out. It is so informative and makes me feel so much more educated about sex! So thank you! [Smile]

Okay great! That makes me feel so much more at ease. I have felt sick lately and worried that it was pregnancy symptoms, but now I know it really can't be. Thank you!! [Smile]
