I’ve never had sex. Can I get pregnant if my boyfriend’s cum came into contact with my vagina? We didn’t have intercourse.

In order for someone to get pregnant, semen needs to come into direct contact with the vagina. But even if someone does not ejaculate in the vagina or have intercourse, there is still a risk of pregnancy. If someone ejaculates on the outside of the body but still near the vagina, sperm can travel in to the vagina, putting them at risk of pregnancy.

Because the penis didn’t penetrate the vagina in your case, pregnancy is less likely, but can still happen.

If you think semen could’ve come into contact with your vagina, you can take Plan B or emergency contraception up to 5 days after unprotected sex to help reduce your risk of ovulation (the release of an egg). The sooner you take Plan B though, the more effective it will be. You can also take a pregnancy test 14 days after sexual contact and get an accurate result.

Keep in mind that the best way to avoid pregnancy is to use forms of birth control consistently and correctly. Teen Clinic offers all different types of birth control. Call us at 303-442-5160 if you have more questions or want to make an appointment!
