This question takes us back to the old days when talking freely about where babies came from was not very common. Remember when your parents threatened you not to talk to boys unless you wanted to become pregnant? When they told you they bought your brother or sister from the supermarket? But times have changed, and most three-year-olds know where kids come from. And you should also know that you cannot conceive from sitting on a toilet seat. We’re going to discuss at length whether you can get pregnant from a toilet seat, so stick around.
Can You Get Pregnant from a Toilet Seat with Sperm on It?
No, it’s almost impossible to get pregnant just by sitting on the toilet seat, even if the seat is smeared with semen. This is because two things must happen for you to get pregnant this way.
1. You must rub the vagina on the seat with the semen on
2. The semen that gets into your vagina must be fresh. That means if it’s dried up or has been exposed to the air for too long, it must be dead or damaged and, therefore, cannot make someone pregnant.
The above events are unlikely to happen, especially in public toilets, since there is no sharing of toilets between men and women. And even in instances where sharing does happen, like in households or hotel rooms, we never hear of cases where family members get pregnant in this manner.
As long as you’re using the toilet properly, any semen that could be on the toilet seat can only end up on the thighs, which will slide off when you stand up. Physically, it’s impossible to sit in a way that your vagina is touching the seat, so even if the sperms were active, there’s no way they could get up your vagina. And we all know that to get pregnant, semen must go inside the vagina and travel up to the uterus.
Even in normal circumstances where a man ejaculates inside a woman, only a few lucky sperms get a chance to reach the egg. And that’s despite the warm, welcoming environment. So, you can imagine that it would be much harder if the sperm were outside in an unconducive environment.
Can Sperm Travel from Outside to Inside?
Yes, sperm can travel from outside and even make you pregnant. If semen gets near or on the vulva, sperm can travel into the vagina, making you pregnant. There are so many instances that can lead to this:
- Your partner ejaculates near the genital area
- You or your partner touch your vulva with fingers that have fresh semen
- You accidentally wipe semen drips onto your vulva
- Your partner’s erect pee-pee touches your genital area
How Long Can Sperm Survive on a Toilet Seat?
Sperms can survive in a woman’s uterus for five days; because the uterus is warm and moist, which are the favorable conditions for the sperm to stay alive. Sperm that is on a toilet seat or anywhere outside lacks those conditions and will therefore dry within minutes of exposure. As soon as the sperm dries, it dies and cannot make you pregnant. That’s why the chances of getting pregnant from a toilet seat are close to zero, even if you sit on a seat smeared with semen.
Can You Get Pregnant from Toilet Paper?
Just like the toilet seat, it’s almost impossible to get pregnant from toilet paper unless you rub the fresh cum onto your vulva while it’s still active. If that happens, then it’s because you wanted it and therefore no cause for concern.
So, Can You Get Pregnant from a Toilet Seat?
We live in a world of possibilities, like a boy ejaculating in a pool and making 16 girls pregnant, people being impregnated by ghosts, and people having physical symptoms of pregnancy when they’re really not pregnant. That means we cannot completely rule out the fact that you can get pregnant from a toilet seat. It seems there are a lot of those little guys everywhere, and there are no absolutes when it comes to sexual matters.
However, when it comes to getting pregnant from sitting on a toilet seat, it is good to note that sperm sitting on a hard surface will die within minutes. It would be impossible to conceive merely sitting on a hard surface. Unless the woman is masturbating by rubbing their vulva on the seat with very fresh sperm, the chances of them getting pregnant are very minimal. So, go ahead and enjoy your bathroom time without the fear of getting pregnant from a toilet seat.
