I am going throuh the toughest time of my life due to an unfortunate risky potential exposure I had.

On 20th day i experienced a dull burning feeling on left side of my groin (maybe slightly above...

Can I get pregnant through a guy wearing shorts but me wearing nothing?
Hi, and thanks for your question No, we really wouldn’t see someone getting pregnant this way. Pregnacy happens when there is direct contact of the genitals like penetrative intercourse of penis in vagina, or direct contact with ejaculate (semen) and the vulva or vaginal opening. Even if there is contact between genitals but one partner is wearing clothing, pregnancy is not a risk. We... Read Full Answer

So even if there was blood in her saliva, there isn’t really a risk for it to have... Read Full Answer
