Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
There is no way she can be pregnant from wiping tissue paper in the vagina even if it had semen on it.
For pregnancy to occur, intercourse is mandatory with seminal emission inside the vagina.
So the baby is her husband's.
Please ask her not to worry.

Patient replied :

Thanks for your reply. Even if there was fresh sperm on the toilet paper, would that cause a concern?

Yes, even if there was fresh semen it won't cause pregnancy for sure.
Please do not worry.
