Hello doctor,

I am a 30-year-old male, my girlfriend and I did a foreplay activity, and she held my penis in her hand for some time, then wiped her fingers and palm. I want to know if sperm can pass through fingers and two layers of clothes. Can she get pregnant by that? Please help.




Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

Sperms cannot live more on a dead surface. Without proper intercourse, chances of pregnancy are very unlikely equal to nill as you had ejaculation on clothes, so do not worry.

I hope this information will help you.


Hi doctor,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I had ejaculation in my pant. I did not have intercourse, and before ejaculation, she held my penis with her hand for some time, and then I wore my pant. Then ejaculation happened, so can that touch to the penis will make her pregnant. Can she get pregnant by kissing, masturbation, and other foreplay activity without having intercourse? Please guide me.

I understand your concern.

Without ejaculation inside the vagina, pregnancy is rare. Foreplay and other activities like kissing cannot make someone pregnant.

I hope this information will help.
