after sex without a condom if the female washes out her vagina with hot water and soap can she still get Pregnant
Yes, she can. Rinsing the vagina — whether it’s with water, a douche, or any other kind of liquid — after unprotected intercourse will NOT reduce the risk of pregnancy. In fact, if a woman does douche after intercourse, there’s a possibility that it may actually push the sperm further up through the cervix, making it even easier for sperm to join with an egg.
Pregnancy can happen when ejaculate or pre-ejaculate gets in the vagina. Teens who have vaginal intercourse need to make choices about birth control.
