I'm curious: can you get pregnant from having anal sex?


    Robert W. Birch, Ph.D., ACS Certified Sexologist

No, you cannot become pregnant from anal intercourse, but the man should still wear a condom . . . not for birth control, but for health reasons.

Remember, anything that has been inserted into the anus should never be inserted into the vagina unless it has been thoroughly washed with soap and hot water. If it is a toy some can be boiled, but there are also toy cleaner sprays and wipes available.

Robert W. Birch, Ph.D., is a retired sex therapist, now identifying himself as a sexologist and adult sexuality educator. He now devotes his time to writing educational and self-help books for adults.For more information visit:
