While it’s highly unlikely, it’s possible to get pregnant without having vaginal sex, experts say. Yep, let that sink in.
“Unfortunately, there are a lot of crazy myths out there just to scare people, so it’s important to understand the real scenarios where it’s possible to get pregnant without having sex, and why,” Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, clinical professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine, tells BuzzFeed Health.
All that being said, just because it’s possible to get pregnant in these ways doesn’t mean it’s likely — it’s still very rare.
Context is important. Yes, some people have gotten pregnant from these activities, but statistically it’s still highly unlikely. Just because it can happen doesn’t mean you should be paranoid that it will happen, especially when there’s a bunch of ways you can protect yourself.
