Published: November 28, 2023
Dear TeenHealth FX,
What if my partner finishes on there hand and then washes there hand with soap and water, dyed them with a rag and let his hands in the air for a while and i can pregnant if he touches me down there.

Dear ,

    TeenHealth FX understands your concern and we are happy you are asking these important questions. After all the steps you took, it is unlikely for you to get pregnant. Always make sure to have your partner wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and get under their fingernails to make sure all the sperm cells die.  

    If you miss your next period, make sure to take an at-home pregnancy test. But continue taking your precautions such as having your partner wash their hands, use a condom, and / or speak to your doctor about getting on birth control.  

    If you still have concerns and need help finding a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist.
