In case you missed sex education class, let's briefly go over how getting pregnant works.
The most common way a person gets pregnant is through unprotected vaginal intercourse, when the penis ejaculates semen into the vagina.
So if the semen lands on a dry, cold floor or a toilet seat, the sperm will probably die pretty quickly.
But if the semen lands on the stomach or in a natural skin crease like the groin area or butt, then the sperm might survive for much longer.
Once the fertilized egg implants in the lining of the uterus, voilà — you're pregnant.
But the question remains: Could sperm still enter the vagina and cause a pregnancy without the whole penis-in-vagina sex preamble?
(Orgasm can cause mild uterine contractions, as can nipple stimulation.) And, of course, if you notice any unusual symptoms during or following intercourse, such as pain or discharge, be sure to let your provider know.
Even if you can't have sex, you can explore other ways of expressing your love: Cuddle, kiss, give each other long massages, and share your feelings for each other.
So, yeah, they're active enough to travel from on or around the vulva to inside the vagina if they're close enough to the vaginal opening.
"If the ejaculate gets close enough to the vulva, it's possible for the sperm to travel into the vagina," Minkin says.
It could move there on its own or it could be accidentally smeared or wiped into the vaginal opening. Well, sperm can pass through fabric and it might technically be possible to cause a pregnancy this way, but Minkin says it's highly unlikely, even if the underwear touching the vulva is saturated with semen.
Don't be shy about talking about sex with your provider.
If you've been advised not to have sex, be sure you understand whether your provider is talking specifically about intercourse, or about putting anything in your vagina, or about any activity that could bring you to orgasm. id=sex-during-pregnancy-85-P01235 [Accessed October 2016]March of Dimes.
Some prefer not to have a Facebook at all (myself included), while others have a profile, but would rather not drag mutual friends into the dating equation.
