#HLWDK Daily Health Tips: Can I Get Pregnant If There Was No Actual Penetration?


Q: Please I want to ask, if a man sperm touches one inner wear like pant without having any direct sex, is it possible for her to get pregnant?

A: Yes, it is possible to get pregnant even if there was no direct sex and/or penetration. How? The pre-ejaculate (a lubricating fluid produced as soon as the penis is erect, before the man ejaculates) may contain some sperm cells and so even if your partner is able to withdraw before ejaculation when there is actual penetration, ejaculates near your vagina, his erect penis comes into contact with your body near your vagina or his sperm gets into your vagina through any means including touching your vagina when he has semen or pre-ejaculate on his fingers, the harm would have been done. The risk of this is small but there is a risk.

You should also worry about the potential for STIs. I suggest that if this is a real situation, you visit your doctor for confirmation of pregnancy – though most GPs would ask that you wait until you actually miss your period. Then, if you are not pregnant, I suggest that you visit a family planning clinic for help with choosing a means of contraception. And remember your ABCs. A is for abstinence. Honestly, this is your safest bet. If you’re not ready to deal with the responsibilities of having a baby, please leave well alone. You can’t have an STI, HIV/AIDS, or otherwise if you don’t have sex. In addition, you can’t get pregnant. Now, if abstinence is a problem, be faithful to one partner…who, hopefully, is being faithful to you too. If you can’t swear on this, revert to plan A. Finally, if all else fails, ensure that you use a condom to prevent STIs and pregnancy.

All the best!
