Unless the sperm makes it into the vagina, I'm going to go with no. They're two completely different highways

Yeah, seriously unless juices are getting into the vagina then there is nothing to worry about. There is no physical path from the anus to the vagina inside the body.

It's not 100% impossible, but it's so improbable as to be statistically insignificant. The sperm in question would have to escape where it's been put, and be lucky enough to find significant moisture to make its journey, and miraculously find its way into the vagina with no guidance, and then travel a much greater distance than it would otherwise travel. All without dying. It's really not going to happen. I voted no.

Not as likely but still could happen. Don't use it as your only birth control, especially if you're the type where the semen tends to come out shortly afterwards.

Definitely not impossible. The likelihood is less but all you need is a trail or drop to 'spill' and there you go. It definitely all depends on position, amount of semen, your own fertility, and one very lucky/unlucky swimmer.
It may not be likely but is not failsafe by any means.

Pretty much what everyone else said. Unless some semen drips into/on moisture from your vagina, you're not likely to get pregnant.

Not impossible, but unlikely.

The semen needs to make its way out of the anus and find its way alllll the way into your vaginal canal to be viable. Depending on position (is it doggy style? will there, following anal sex, be vaginal sex? how active is the sperm? are you ovulating?) it's more or less likely. Safer than vaginal sex, yes, but not foolproof by any stretch of imagination.


And I'm not a gay man, but my girlfriend shoots blanks so the stork will visit me, too.

There is a very small percent chance of getting pregnant from anal sex. I was worried about a pregnancy after I was raped anally when I was 16 without protection. I think the chance of that ever happening is like 5%, but I'm not entirely sure.

Drinking the water can make you pregnant these days it seems. I'd rather not take my chances.

I agree with all of the answers. Not impossible, but not highly probable either.

In high school our health teacher gave us the old urban legend of the two teenagers who were dry humping and he ejaculated on her panties while she was waearing them and even though she was a virgin she got pregnant. . .always better to be safe than sorry is the moral of that story.

It is extreamly rare and there has to be a fisure between the rectal tubes and the vaginal canal. There have been reported cases of women who had a hole between the vaginal wall and the rectal wall and were able to concive through anal sex.

The chance is closer to being less then 1% as there would have to be some way for the sperm to get from the anus into the vagina without dying and oxygen kills sperm so even if you pushed it out and it dripped into your vagina the chances would be so low that it is rare.

Oxygen doesn't instantly kill sperm. It can last for several hours - alive - outside the body, depending on the medium it's sitting on. And sperm, and any other liquid, does have a tendency to leak out of the anus. So if it gets on your vulva, the sperm will try with all its might to swim inside to fertilize an egg. You still will need birth control for anal sex.

And as for a fissure between the rectum and vaginal canal, that's very rare and generally caught immediately. Those two environments of bacteria don't get along and that person would have some major infection issues going on.

Besides, during anal sex you need to be using protection anyway if you want to be safe. The anus has some pretty powerful bacteria that aren't body-friendly like that of the vagina so when it enters the man's urethra, it can cause some very painful urinary tract infections, not to mention it's an easy way to spread STDs. I wouldn't even consider not using a condom unless you're fluid-bonded for life.

If you have anal sex to completion without a condom and your anus and vagina are fairly close together (genetically there is some variation in the thickness of the tissue of the perineum) then ejaculate containing live sperm can leak into the vagina and if conditions are right it can lead to preganacy. Pre-ejaculate can also lead to pregnancy as can frottage (rubbing the penis on the labia and not penetrating the vagina) if seminal fluid containing live sperm gets past the inner labia and enters the vagina.
Sperm are rather hearty little guys and can live up to 3-5 days waiting for just the right opportunity to come along.
Using a condom properly or using a chemical barrier (spermicide or the pill ect.) can be up to 98% effective in preventing pregnancy; the key is proper use of said techniques.
If you truly don't want to get pregnant use a condom properly whenever a fetile penis is near your bikini area!

It's not impossible, just highly improbable, not that that would stop SO and I from worrying about it, but we worry a lot.

If the sperm gets in the vagina from messy play.

Maybe not that far, but I suppose if you were bathing/swimming in the water you could, provided that a whole group of rather unlikely occurrences came together.

if you're very careful about were the semen gets I'd think no

It's probably not very likely, but spillage can occur. We are really careful with the exit and cleanup. I don't want to get pregnant, and that would be a really-face palm way for it to happen.

Whoa, I didn't know about the urban myth. But! A girl I went to school with told me this happened to her. Along with a lot of other not so believable things. It sounded urban-mythy to me. She just wasn't the type to tell such things, so I thought about giving her the benefit of the doubt. But I just couldn't believe it. Maybe it was true. Who knows...

Yes, always better to be safe than sorry.

I have a hard time believing it could make it, it would require a miracle for them to make it.

I would completely ignore the fabricated statistics that some people have stated. I doubt anyone here has accurate scientific proof. They're all guesses.

However, everyone seems to agree that anal sex can lead to pregnancy.

So, the answer is yes. There is a risk. The chances of getting pregnant would vary from case to case; just like with vaginal intercourse.

One of the easiest ways to get pregnant from anal sex would be to do it doggy-style, with no condom, then letting the ejaculate secrete from the anus and drip onto the vagina.

To significantly lower the chances of pregnancy, just use a condom and make sure you don't spill anything at the end. Or the lady can be on the pill.

Just because the risk is low doesn't mean you should be careless. Have fun and be safe. Anal sex is great.

^ This. You just need to play safe is all, and prevent it from even happening in the first place by taking the necessary precautions.

Yep, I was about to mention this. Sometimes women can have a congenital fistula and they do not even know it because it is relatively small and has not yet caused them any problems.

There are some documented instances of pregnancy via anal intercourse because the woman had a fistula. These cases may be (considerably) rare, but it can happen. I remember reading about a case describing a woman who had no outer genitalia (i.e., no vulva or vaginal opening), so she and her husband always had anal intercourse. Yet she was able to conceive and bear several children this way due to a fistula connecting her anal canal to her internal vaginal canal. Interestingly enough, the flow from her menstrual cycle had always found its way out anally since she had no vaginal opening. But women who have small fistulae and who have a normal vaginal opening usually don't know about the fistula because the menstrual flow exits via the vaginal opening.

Also, even in women without a fistula, any semen that makes it to the vulva (by dripping down from the anal canal to the vulva when she is on her stomach or in the doggie position) could conceivably (pun intended) travel through the vaginal canal, resulting in pregnancy. Of course, if you were actively trying to have a baby, this (ejaculating on the outer vulva) is not the means I'd recommend trying as it is not nearly as likely to result in pregnancy, but it can (and does) happen to some women who had avoided vaginal penetration, but had allowed their partner to ejaculate externally on the vulva after manual stimulation and dry humping (though I maintain that the guy would have to ejaculate directly onto the naked vulva, which has become very wet with natural lubrication for this to ever successful happen . . . and even then it is probably a long shot -- though not an impossibility).

Moral of the story: don't use anal intercourse as a means of birth control. Any time you engage in anal or vaginal sex, make sure you are protected, be it with condoms, birth control pills, or what-have-you. Or have oral sex and be careful not to get any semen transferred to the vulva via fingers, lips, tongues, etc.

I didn't vote. I would have, had there been an option stating, "Not likely, though far from impossible."
