Can you get pregnant from Anal Sex? – For the most part no, you cannot. However nothing is impossible.
Yes, but it is rare. If semen or pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) comes into contact with the opening of the vagina or the vulva, the sperm may survive and travel up the vaginal canal, through the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes. If a girl or woman is ovulating, or about to ovulate, there is a possibility that the sperm can fertilize an egg in the fallopian tubes, resulting in pregnancy. The best way to keep sperm from fertilizing an egg cell is to make sure that no semen gets below the belly button or above the thighs.
Quick Anatomy Lesson
The anus is part of the digestive system which begins in a person’s mouth, and ends with the anus. Since the reproductive system and the digestive system are not connected, sperm that enters anally cannot swim through the body to reach an egg in the reproductive system. Pretty straight forward, right?
That said, you CAN get pregnant from the after effects; if semen or pre-ejaculate seeps, leaks, or drips from the anus and manages to make contact with the vulva/vaginal opening, there’s a chance the sperm can survive and make its way up the vaginal canal, through the cervix, uterus, and finally end up in the fallopian tubes, and if the person is ovulating/about to ovulate, it could theoretically fertilize an egg. Again, the likely chance it would happen is minimal.
To minimize any chance of this happening, I’d suggest you engage in safer sex practices like using a condom during anal intercourse.
With so many b.s. myths floating around I’m stressing that you please take this opportunity to learn about your bodies, how they work, the reproductive systems of the female and safe sex so that you can answer these questions with common sense based on the information that you already have.
