    I wouldn't say zero. There used to be a sex therapist on WebMD who had a patient for whom sex was extremely painful. Her husband ejacualed on her vaginal opening and she got pregnant with twins.

    I would say chances are pretty close to zero unless he ejaculated on your vaginal opening and you happened to be ovulating.

    Oh. I see. I heard about artificial insemination and that kind of thing. What are the chances of getting pregnant when you have semen in your finger and put it inside girls vagina? Are the chances with artificial insemination and penetration the same?
    themiller replied to themiller's response:
    Georgiagail and tlkittycat1968 thankyou so much for answering
    fcl replied to themiller's response:
    The thing you have to remember is that semen is extremely fragile and once it dries out it dies. It doesn't stand up to hand washing either. Artificial insemination is VERY hard to do.
    themiller replied to fcl's response:
    What are the chances of getting pregnant within your ovulation period with no penetration? Thank you.
