Hello doctor,

My finger had a drop of precum, and I touched my partner’s vagina indirectly through her cotton panties. Will she get pregnant?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand the concern.

Precum or pre-ejaculatory fluid also contains sperm to make a female pregnant. If your sperm has reached inside her vagina by any probability, there are chances of pregnancy. Also to be noted she should be in her fertile period (10 to 15 days from her last menstrual period) to get pregnant.

If you are anxious, and if it is within 24 hours you can go for an emergency contraceptive pill (I pill). I hope I have answered your query. If you have further doubts, I would be happy to help you.
