É is it possibleíable to get pregnant without penetrationção?

Pregnancy without penetration is possible, but it is very difficult to happen, because, in most cases, the amount of sperm that comes into contact with the vaginal canal is very small, which makes it difficult for the egg to be fertilized.

In addition, sperm are less mobile outside the body and can only survive for a few minutes. Still, if the environment is warmer and humid, the sperm can last longer.

For pregnancy without penetration to be possible, the woman must not be using any contraceptive and that ejaculation must take place close to the vagina, so there is a minimal chance that sperm will enter the vaginal canal and there is enough viable sperm to fertilize the egg.

When there is greater risk

To have a chance of pregnancy without penetration, the woman must not be using any contraceptive method. Some situations can increase the risk of getting pregnant without penetration, such as:

  • After ejaculation, place your finger or objects that have had contact with sperm inside the vagina;
  • The partner ejaculates close to the vagina, i.e. near or on top of the groin, for example;
  • Place the erect penis in some region of the body near the vaginal canal.

In addition to these situations, coitus interruptus, which consists of withdrawing the penis from the vagina before ejaculation, can also represent a risk of pregnancy, because even if there is no ejaculation during penetration, the man may have a small amount of sperm in the urethra, from a previous ejaculation, which can reach the egg, fertilize and result in pregnancy.Learn more about withdrawal.

The possibility of pregnancy is still questionable when underwear is worn and penetration does not occur, since it is not yet known whether the sperm are able to pass through the tissue and reach the vaginal canal. In addition, ejaculation during anal sex can lead to pregnancy if the liquid flows into the vaginal region, however, this practice normally does not expose the woman to the risk of pregnancy, since there is no communication between the anus and the vagina, in however, it can predispose both women and men to sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

How not to get pregnant

The best way to prevent pregnancy is using a contraceptive method, such as a condom, birth control pill, IUD or diaphragm, for example, as these are the safest ways to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. See how to choose the best contraceptive method.

However, only condoms and female condoms are capable of preventing pregnancy and preventing the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases and, therefore, are the most suitable methods for those who have more than one sexual partner, for example.
