Can A Woman Become Pregnant Without Intercourse?
, is it possible for a woman to get pregnant without penetrating (sex)?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm in advance, sexual intercourse there are various ways, and not all types of sex involve penetration of the penis into the vagina. Penetration of the penis into the mouth or anus can also be referred to as sexual intercourse and petting (sex-rubbing) is also included in sexual relations.
Basically, pregnancy will only occur when sperm meet with an egg (ovum). The meeting of sperm with the egg cell will only occur if there are sperms that enter the vagina and eventually swim into the uterus and still survive in the uterus when ovulation or egg removal from the egg bladder (sperm can survive in the uterus for approximately 3 -5 days). Ovulation or egg release only occurs once a month, which is about 14 days before the estimated next menstruation. After coming out of the ovary, the ovum will only last for 12-24 hours before it finally dies and cannot be fertilized anymore.
Some ways that sexual relations can cause pregnancy include:
Sexual intercourse with penetration of the penis into the vagina is followed by ejaculation (sperm release) in the vagina. In this way the highest likelihood of pregnancy is sexual intercourse with penetration of the penis into the vagina, but ejaculation is carried out outside the vagina. Preejakulat fluid (fluid that comes out spontaneously from the penis when the penis gets sexually stimulated) can also contain live sperm even though the amount is very small. Sexual intercourse without penetration at all, but sperm released right in front of the mouth of the vagina (sperm can still swim into the vagina and cause pregnancy) Sexual intercourse without penetration at all, sperm are removed far from the mouth of the vagina, but sperm are inserted using a finger. If no sexual intercourse is done at all, pregnancy can only occur if the act of fertilization is carried out with the help of a tool, either fertilization inside the uterus (meaning sperm is injected with a special instrument into the uterus or also called IUI - Intrauterine Insemination), or fertilization outside the uterus then the egg is implanted in the uterus (also known as IVF - InVitroFertilization).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
