Question

Hi! I really need an answer for my question: Does only kissing cause pregnancy?

Answer

Because of the nature of the question, I need to make sure you understand some basic things. Pregnancy occurs when sperm from a male reaches the egg from a female at the right time. Sperm is contained in the semen that men ejaculate from their penis when they become very sexually aroused. Eggs are released inside your body and the only path to them from the outside is through your vagina.

Therefore, only kissing will not cause a pregnancy because the man doesn't release semen and the only contact between the two people is the mouth, not the genitals (the penis on the man and the vagina in the woman).

However, kissing can lead toward pregnancy because couples frequently don't stop at just kissing over time. Eventually they go too far and the man ejaculates and the semen gets into the vagina.
