You Can Still Get Pregnant Even If You’re Not Doing “It”





Sorry to break the news, girls. Yes, you can still get pregnant even if you’re not having sex (we mean intercourse as in penetration).

While statistically very unlikely to happen, there is still the risk of pregnancy depending where the pesky sperm ends up. The bad news is, sperm can live outside the body, but their longevity depends on the warmth and moisture where they land. If the gunk land on the bed, they are a goner. However, if they land anywhere near your groin or creases on the skin, they tend to live longer.

There is still a risk of pregnancy even if you are not doing “it”!

Did you get any high school flashbacks? If you don’t want to end up being a mom or dad before you are ready, pay close attention to ejaculation as that is the culprit in knocking up girls. Watch closely whether the semen and vagina come in close contact.

Research says sperm can live in your vagina for up to five days and if it managed to swim its way to your egg, then congratulations is in order.

Sperm can thrive in moist areas for up to five days until they dry up.

This is the same logic behind the possibility of getting pregnant even if you have your period. Most experts advise avoiding sex even when the woman is having her menstruation saying that they can still get pregnant. The warmth and moisture is favorable for the sperm.

Red flag means risk. You shouldn’t even if you think it’s ok

There you have it! While the chances are slim, there is always the first time. Your best option is to use some kind of birth control such as condom, pills, IUD. After all, it is better safe than sorry.
