Question
Hell I know this may sound a little over-though, but if I have a shoewr with semen still on my penis, and the water drips over it onto my girls vulva (who is shorter then me), is there really any risk? or is it too unlikely to be a concern.

It did definetlaly drip onto her vagina, and I think i definetally still would have had some semen (just a little) coming out. Although i was in the shower before her so the initial bit would have washed off.
Sorry when I sead it did definetally drip, I meant the water directly from my penis. Not the semen.

Hi,
Thanks for the query.
There is very less possibility for pregnancy in your case.
The semen diluted with water may not enter in to the inner genital tract.
If your girl friend was not in her ovulatory period, the risk decreases further or if she was in her ovulatory period, wait for her expected date of periods.
And if she miss the period go for pregnancy test once.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Can such a small amount of semen cause pregnancy (ie a few remaining drops diluted with water) or us that unlikely and you generally need a more substansial ammount? Thanks :-)

Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Actually few spermatozoa are enough to fertilize ovum. But the spermatozoa in few drops of diluted semen may not be more in number and may not have the capacity to ascend and reach the ovum.
So the chance of pregnancy is very less in your case.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

What do you mean very less? Do you mean very low?
