Hello, let me just start out by saying that I love this website and I really appreciate its existence. Alright so I've read through all of the pregnancy risk articles and the fingering+semen questions. I found that one answer to someones question said that the chances of pregnancy through fingering with semen was "minimal at best" whereas another article stated that manual sex posed NO risk. Also, another answer stated that sperm continues to live after being ejaculated. I had semen on my hand but had then wiped it with a towel, and may or may not have been traces and moisture left. Around four minutes later I fingered myself. I would like to know if this poses ANY risk even if the risk is minimal. Thank you so much. I know you're all probably tired of answering the same question over and over and dealing with paranoid people.

There may be a slight risk if someone has a handful of fresh semen and then puts that fresh semen in contact with a vulva. (So if your partner ejaculated on your hand and you immediately put that hand on your vulva, that poses a slight risk.) But if you wiped off your hands, then pregnancy is not something to be concerned about.
