Big question

So I am on my period right now. Staying at a hotel. Last night I was washing my body with a wash cloth from the hotel. Can I get pregnant from washing my body with that on my period? Please help

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

You can't get pregnant from a washcloth. Have you had sex education in school? If not, you can study on your own. Our site is a good resource or you can read books on the subject. Pregnancy happens when sperm (from a male's penis) travels up your vaginal canal to meet an egg. For all intents and purposes, this happens through sexual intercourse - a males penis inserted into your vagina.
