    Could she be pregnant now?
    An_254782 posted:

    Hello everyone,

    my GF got pregnant in August, she decided and had an abortion because she did not know who the father was. i was really upset, she left me because i did not want to have the baby. and now she came back to me and she still wants to have a baby, which makes me feel more upset as she refused to get married.
    that made me have an obsession and a paranoia about her being pregnant.
    we had sex on the last day of her period, i was very careful, but i may have rubbed and then fingered her vagina , 2-3 mins after ejaculation, i don't know if it was semen or lube from the condom i was wearing but now i am scared and i am afraid to talk it out with her. she wanted to have unprotected sex but i stopped her while the tip of my penis was on her vagina.
    she got pregnant on the same day of her cycle but last time we did not use protection and i ejaculated inside.
    i read alot about "getting pregnant from fingering" around, it seems that it is highly unlikely given a sperm amount is very small and it makes it harder for it to travel up the uterus, but there is a chance!
    am i being too paranoid ?

    You're definitely being paranoid. Sperm are very fragile and die soon after being exposed to air. As long as you used protection, you should be fine.

    TYVM for your prompt response, but i read somewhere that this is a myth.
    Sperm dies once it reaches the air because oxygen kills sperm. (False)This is a myth that many people believe in, but it is not true! Once sperm is DRY it is dead and cannot travel to fertilize an egg. Sperm can live for 3-5 days if it is in a warm, moist environment such as the cervix of a woman. Sperm cannot come back to life once it has dried, even if it is remoistened!

    i think it was little amount if existed, I took off the condom, ejaculated away from her, then lied down for twp minutes after i finished ejaculating but i rubbed it on her vulva and used two fingers then.

    she said its impossible, i probably am too paranoid, i just wanted to get likeliness of such a thing happening, as it is a possibility but probably a very unlikely one

    I never said sperm die as soon as they reach air. I said they die soon after. It has to be the right environment for them to live and air obviously isn't.
