Peeps answered Saturday January 23 2010, 4:18 pm: Yes, you can become pregnant if a guy ejaculates near your vagina. You could also become pregnant if the guy had ejaculated on the bed and you placed your bare vagina on it or it soaked through your underwear. Being a virgin doesn't mean you cannot get pregnant, believe it or not.
The hymen usually has a small hole in it as it is. A hymen is made of very thin tissue and it is fairly easy to tear or stretch. It's located at the entrance to the vagina so, actually, it isn't inside of the vagina. The hole is there to allow menstrual blood to escape the body and is usually too small to accommodate an entire penis to enter the vagina.
It is rare but some females are born with an imperforate hymen--or a hymen with no opening. A doctor will do a simple surgery to create a hole in the hymen of these newborn females so that blood from later menstrual cycles does not back up into the body.
Anyway, since women have a small hole in their hymens anyway things can go into the vagina and, obviously, come out of the vagina. This being said, if a guy got his semen on your vagina in some fashion then there IS a chance of pregnancy to occur.
So, technically, even if there is not penile penetration but his fluids come in contact with your fluids there is a chance pregnancy could occur. Any time a guy's semen even remotely comes in contact with your vaginal fluid there is a chance of pregnancy. It only takes one sperm to fertilize one egg and they are created to do whatever it takes to accomplish fertilization.
If you do have vaginal intercourse and you do not completely break/tear your hymen it will stretch out and create a larger hole, just as your vagina will naturally stretch out to accommodate the penis. Some hymens are elastic enough to permit a penis to enter without tearing, or they will tear only partially, and there may be no bleeding at all.
Engaging in sex means always taking the risk of becoming pregnant since no contraceptive is 100% effective. Please get yourself completely informed before deciding to participate in such activities. [ Peeps's advice column | Ask Peeps A Question ]

If you are having sex, then most likely your hymen will rip before the ejaculation enters you.
If you are talking about someone ejaculating on your hymen, and then getting into you, resulting in you getting pregnant; It is possible. Very, highly unlikely, but very, very possible.
And by the way, the hymen doesn't just all up and break at one time. It's a tiny, thin piece of skin that can break down over time. Not just from sex or foreplay, and not just from strenuous exercise, you can't really keep it from tearing down. It just kind of will, and it's hard to know when it's completely gone.
So regardless of whether your hymen is ripped or not, it's always possible to get pregnant, and since you will never know when your hymen is gone, then you don't want to rely on that as birth control =] [ Melody's advice column | Ask Melody A Question ]
