Brief Answer:
Sperm doesnt travel through clothing

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXX
Semen doesn't pass through cloth or clothing . The only way semen enters in the female genital tract is by direct deposit of semen inside . That is usually after penile ejaculation after penetration and in some cases via fingers . However if ejaculation occurs within clothing and there is no direct contact with the female genital tract or vagina then it's safe .

So if semen comes into contact with clothing and not directly in contact with the vagina, then fertillisation is impossible ??

Brief Answer:
fertilisation not possible

Detailed Answer:
Semen needs to be deposited inside the vagina for fertilization to take place . Other than that fertilization isnt possible .

My partner had underwear and leggings on. I may have had seamen on my fingers and then touched her above her vaginal area ( she had both layers of clothing ). Would there be any possibility of pregnancy based on this scenario ?? The seamen only came into contact with clothes

Brief Answer:
no possibility of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
No if she was wearing clothes and you touched her over them then it's unlikely to be a problem . You can be assured its safe in that scenario .

If the result is negative, would it be definitive ??
 
 
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 14 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Period is definite

Detailed Answer:
The most definite result would be if your partner had a period. If the period is delayed, then rare chances of a false negative stands. By 4 weeks after intercourse, she should have had a period by now.
