my girl friend and i had oral , and she swallowed my semen. She is a virgin, 23 years old. is there
any risk of her getting pregnant?

also, earlier we had slept beside each other naked, and i did not ejactulat and was totally dry,
while she had some wetness in her vaginal area. i did not try to enter her, and we covered our
genital areas with our hands when she came ont top of me. my penis did not enter her or touch her
opening, and she is still a virgin. is there any chance of her getting pregnant?

pls reply soon...
thanks

No, there is no pregnancy risk from swallowing semen (there is an STD risk, though, which is why we recommend using a condom for oral sex).

And if your penis did not touch her vulva, then there is no risk from your sleeping next to each other. However, if you're going to have direct genital contact of any kind, we suggest using a condom.

Thank You for the prompt reply...

i'm currently not feeling very confident on my knowledge of the female anatomy, so please explain what you mean by vulva..do you mean the opening of the vaginal are, or the part deep inside.

i would like to remind you that my gf is a virgin...so is there a possibility of my having reached her vulva without beaking her hymen? (in any case, this time i did not even touch her 'opening' )

Thank you once again

"Vulva" refers to all the external parts of the female genitals. Read all about it at Pink Parts Female Sexual Anatomy.

So no, the hymen (which is in the vaginal opening if it's present at all) won't prevent you from touching her vulva.

And if sperm (in ejaculate or pre-ejaculate) gets onto the vulva, it is possible for it to get into the vagina and for pregnancy to result even if there hasn't been any penetration - it's a lower risk than from intercourse, but it does exist.

Not all women who've never had sexual intercourse have intact hymens - some women are born without hymens, and many women's hymens get eroded by exercise, tampon use, etc.

Even when it hasn't been eroded at all, the hymen does not seal off the vagina completely (except in a few rare cases, where a doctor will need to snip it in order to let menstrual blood escape). So the hymen doesn't provide any protection against pregnancy at all.

Thank you...another doubt ( in case there are any faq's or articles in your site for this, pls refer them directly, and dont spend time re writing that info..! )


although u have reassuered me that chances of pregnancy are practically non existent, keeping in view the fact that we 'touched' each other on 17th april, and performed oral sex on 21st, when, and what symptoms, will be there in case of her concieving. her periods are due on 7th or 9tjh of may..

also, what ec /other measures do we have to take in case of the symptoms?

thanks for ur help

Looking for "symptoms" is a completely unreliable way of telling of someone's pregnant or not:

Pregnancy "Symptoms" / Am I Pregnant?

If you and your girlfriend are worried, she can take a pregnancy test as soon as it's been 10-14 days since the last sexual activity.

From what you've said, the risk of pregnancy in this case is non-existent - there is no risk from swallowing semen or sleeping near each other - so there is no need to get emergency contraception.
