Am I freaking out over nothing?

Ok so last night my boyfriend and I were hanging out. I gave him a hand job/blowjob and he ejaculated onto his stomach. I immediately got him a paper towel for him to wipe off the wet semen on his stomach. From what I saw, his fingers did not touch any wet semen because he had used the paper towel to wipe it up. He then went to the bathroom and said he wet down the area where the semen had been on his stomach BUT he didn't wash his hands. I am also on my period and had a tampon in. Anyways, I don't know how long it was, maybe 10 min, but there was a chance he might of touched my vagina with his fingers, but I completely forget. But I know he had to of touched other things before touching my vagina, even if he did touch it. I know that once semen is dry, the sperm is dead and its not like his fingers were dripping wet with semen. He also never fingered me since I had a tampon in and was on my period, there was a chance he did rub the outside of my vagina though with his fingers. I just want to know, is there any pregnancy risk?

So even if he did have some semen on his fingers, it would of been all dried up and dead after like 5 min? Or how long does it normally take for it to dry up on skin and out in the air? And yes I was on my period during this and had a tampon in. I always freak out over little things like this and its so frustrating.

Hi again! 

As I said already today on a different post, there is no risk of pregnancy but I can't force you to believe or accept my advice. Maybe you should re-evaluate your own sexual behaviors so that you don't have all these worries. Maybe take a break from sexual activities, you really don't seem ready for all this. I know it's frustrating to be so worried all the time but you can't get pregnant when you don't have sex, and when you have your period with a tampon inside. 

You can spend all day looking up info, reading horror stories on chat boards etc, but the medical facts remain the same.

So since I had a tampon in does the prevent sperm from swimming up into my vagina? And since I was on my period I wasn't ovulating right? So another reason I should not worry. I know you can't get pregnant unless your ovulating. So once semen is ejaculated and hits air, its life span is only about 2-3 minutes?

Hi CC123

Thanks for your post! 

There is no possibility at all of getting pregnant this way. To get pregnant you have to have sexual intercourse or sperm placed directly on your vaginal opening (and that risk is low). 

You did not have any kind of sex, you have your period and had a tampon in - no chance of pregnancy.

So even if he did have some semen on his fingers, would it of been all dried up after a few minutes? Or how long does it take to dry up on skin out in the open air? I always get so worried about these kinds of things and it takes me a while to get over them. I'm so frustrated with myself and its killing me that this kind of stuff always happens.
