Possible or impossoble pregnancy?

Patient : Why is it impossible to become pregnant from fresh semen from the toilet seat? Some people say it is unlikely but there is a small chance. Does the size of the toilet seat matter.
Symptoms:  Worried, anxious
Doctor :   Hello , Thanks for the query. The possibility of fresh semen over toilet seat which can cause pregnancy is minimal a s the sperms when coming in contact with fomites like toilet seat cause sperm fractures and make them immotile and hence non-functional, but again if the gap of time interval between ejaculation and toilet seat reuse by a female partner is short, then possibilities do exist that the sperm may get smeared near vagina and if at all it is able to travel all the way up to the uterus from there, then pregnancy may occur. So, practically its a far fetched idea and possibilities are rare. Hope this helps. Regards
