Question: Wanted to get a second opinion on a question I asked last night...
My boyfriend ejaculated and some got on my hand. I washed my hands and about 2 hours later I masturbated. I did not penetrate my vagina but what are the chances I could get pregnant from that situation?

I know I am probably unnecessarily concerned but since the day after the incident I have had some lower abdominal pain. That is sometimes common for me because I am on the birth control pill, however last month there were a few times when I missed taking it so I took the pill the next day. The incident also occurred on the last day of my period, which I know is a time that the body isn't very fertile.

Considering all these factors do you think I am okay? And how long does sperm remain alive on skin?

Hello

Welcome and thanks for writing to us

Since the intercourse was on the last day of your menstrual periods and the ejaculate was thrown outside as well as you are on irregular birth control pills , the chances of pregnancy are very rare.The life of sperm in vagina is from 5-7 days.As far as skin in concerned , if you washed your hands immediately , the sperm is likely to become immobile at the same time and gets washed away.Do not worry , take precautions for this cycle and watch for the periods to come.Later on you can start regular birth control pills.
Best wishes

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal ultrasound........so my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
