Ejaculated on Top of My Girlfriend's Clothes - What are The Chances She is Pregnant?

Published: June 26, 2017
Dear TeenHealthFX,
Hello, My girlfriend and I were fooling around and experimenting. She was fully clothed in the vaginal area with her panties, cotton shorts (thin), and an always nighttime pad. She is due for her period within the next couple days. I ejaculated on top of her shorts and the outside of her pantiesgot wet as well through the shorts. We are worried about pregnancy. What are the chances of her getting pregnant? Would taking a BC pill help at this point.

Dear Ejaculated on Top of My Girlfriend's Clothes - What Are the Chances She is Pregnant?,

In order for pregnancy to occur, sperm contained in ejaculatory fluids needs to come in contact with the vagina. Given your girlfriend was wearing underwear, a pad and shorts when you ejaculated, it is very unlikely that this would have happened and that pregnancy could have occurred.

However, if it would put your minds at ease, your girlfriend could take a pregnancy test if she does not get her period when expected.

If a person has unprotected sexual intercourse, or their method of protection fails for some reason (i.e., the condom broke), taking emergency contraception is a consideration. However, depending on the type of emergency contraception, it needs to be taken anywhere between 72 hours (3 days) and 120 hours (5 days) after having unprotected sex. EC is sold at local pharmacies and can also be obtained from Planned Parenthood health centers.   

Pregnancy scares are just that – they really are a scary thing to deal with. To prevent yourself from being in these kinds of situations in the future TeenHealthFX suggests that you check out the links in our Resource of the Month: Planned Parenthood Resources on Safer Sex so that you can learn about sexual readiness, how pregnancy happens, pregnancy tests, emergency contraception, birth control, STDs and more. The more educated you are about these topics, the more likely you will make healthy decisions for yourself when it comes to your sexual health.

If you are having sex currently, or at whatever time you plan on becoming sexually active in the future, TeenHealthFX would like to encourage you to speak to your doctor about safer sex precautions. Doctors generally recommend that teens and young adults who choose to be sexually active use condoms each and every time they have sex to protect against unwanted pregnancies and the transmission of STDs, as well as a back-up method of birth control such as the pill or birth control shot. Your doctor can make the best recommendations for you and discuss with you how to use properly use birth control to maximize its effectiveness.

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. A Planned Parenthood health center is a good option if you have concerns about cost or confidentiality issues. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
