How to confirm if Sperm entered the Vagina during Sexual Intercourse

Sperm entering the vagina for fertilization should not bother you and your partner if you have been planning to have a child or if you are on pills to prevent pregnancy; however, if none of the above is the case, it is essential to know if semen has made its way into the vagina so that you will know which course of action to take afterward.

The biology of sexual intercourse can be confusing; we are here to help. Below are some things that indicate that semen and sperm cells have found their way into the vagina after sexual intercourse.

Broken condoms

Condoms are used when you want to have safe sex to protect against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Others also prefer not to wear it because they feel like they are eating a candy that’s still in its wrapper; however, if you are one of those who detest the rubber, you wouldn’t be here reading this article.

A condom can tear due to too much friction or even insufficient lubrication and on rare occasions when ejaculation happens. When the condom tears, semen can enter the vagina, so one way to confirm is with a broken condom. Once you see it, know that sperm has entered the woman.

Men should always select quality condoms and use water-based lubricants. They should use fresh condoms as well to prevent them from tearing up.

Pre ejaculation

The fluid that lubricates and neutralizes the acidity of the urethra for the sperm to have a clear path is called pre-ejaculation or pre-cum. It comes before ejaculation.

Research has shown that 4 out of 100 women can get pregnant when pre-ejaculation enters the vagina because the fluid may contain sperm.

Once pre-cum enters the woman, there are chances that sperm has also found its way through it. There are chances that she could get pregnant even if you pull out before ejaculation itself.

Unprotected anal sex

The anus is not far from the vagina, and the apple never falls far from the tree. When you have unprotected anal sex and ejaculate, sperm cells can quickly find theirir way into the vagily. 

The only ‘safe way’ to have sperm inside your body without the pregnancy scare is through oral sex, otherwise known as a blowjob. During this sexual interaction, semen enters the mouth. Some women go ahead to swallow it, but it doesn’t cause pregnancy because the semen cannot swim past the digestive system and across the uterus to go ahead and fertilize an egg.

Pregnancy test

At the end of it all, this is what will actually give you the accurate results. When you do a pregnancy test, it will confirm whether sperm cells entered your vagina or not. Pregnancy is a clear indication that sperm entered the body.

After intercourse, semen can leak through the vagina. This doesn’t mean that sperm didn’t get through the fallopian tube. It is actually an indication that semen had entered the vagina.

Some have leaked out doesn’t mean some did not remain. To avoid the doubts, practice safe sex by using a condom during intercourse or using emergency contraceptive pills.

We have an article about emergency contraceptive pills, their price, where to buy them, and the advantage of using them to prevent pregnancy.
