Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 18 years old and I have a question. Can masturbation lead to pregnancy? I am worried about a situation like when I masturbate in my pants and if my partner touches my pant with her hands and then she goes to the washroom to do female masturbation which means that now she has my semen on her hands and that semen might enter her vagina and make her pregnant? I am not sure if sperm will survive or die and it is really a matter of concern to me. My mind is full of what if it happens. Please share your knowledge and also if there is a chance of spreading STD/STI /HIV/AIDS in this situation.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Outside of the body, sperm may die quickly when they are exposed to the air. The length of time they stay alive has a lot to do with environmental factors and how fast they dry up. So it is very unlikely for her to get pregnant if she touches your pants and do masturbation.

Infections are usually transmitted because of direct skin to skin contact or else with unprotected sexual intercourse unless the partner had any particular sexually transmitted infection.
