Hand Job In Theater- Could I Be Pregnant?

Published: July 20, 2017
Dear TeenHealthFX,
Hi, so last week I gave a hand job to my boyfriend in a theater and more than half way through the movie he came on his jacket and some got on my hand, I couldn't leave the theater right away so I wiped it on a napkin and afterwards it was still kinda sticky. During the credits I fixed my undies and dress before I got up. So is it possible for me to be pregnant from that? Thank you for reading. :)

Dear Hand Job In Theater- Could I Be Pregnant?,

TeenHealthFX appreciates your concern. If you and your partner are going to engage in hand stimulation, it would be an excellent idea to wash your hands with soap and water afterwards. Regular hand washing also helps prevent the spread of bacteria and other germs.

In order for pregnancy to occur, ejaculatory or pre-ejaculatory fluids needs to come into contact with the vagina. If you touched your boyfriend’s semen with your hand, and then touched your vagina, there is a possibility that you may be pregnant. Keep in mind, however, that TeenHealthFX cannot know for sure whether or not you are pregnant -- the only way to obtain an accurate result is by conducting a pregnancy test. If you miss a period, you should take a pregnancy test after the missed period or schedule an appointment with your primary care physician, adolescent medicine specialist or gynecologist who can give you a pregnancy test. Sometimes a pregnancy test can give accurate results within a few days of an expected period, however, they are most accurate when taken after a missed period.  

TeenHealthFX does recommend that you and your boyfriend educate yourselves about How Pregnancy Happens. It would also be a good idea to check out our Resource of the Month: Planned Parenthood Resources on Safer Sex so you can learn about sexual readiness, birth control, STDs, pregnancy tests, emergency contraception, myths and facts about sex and more. The more educated you are and the more precautions you take when it comes to being sexually active, the less likely you will find yourself in a situation where you are dealing with an unwanted pregnancy or the transmission of an STD.

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to write back to TeenHealthFX. You could also check in with a trusted adult in your family, your school nurse, or your primary care physician, gynecologist or adolescent medicine specialist. 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. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
