Hello Anonymous,

Stress can cause a delay in the start of your period. During periods of stress or perceived threat, the body's alarm system is triggered. The adrenal glands release a surge of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. One response is to turn off certain functions that are not considered essential. The menstrual cycle is one of those functions.

Your vagina is located inside of your body. It extends from the vulva, which is outside to the uterus which is inside. Most likely you washed your vulva.

By the time this happened, any semen on your hands had dried. Once semen has dried, any sperm has died.

If this is the only type of sexual activity that you have had, there is no chance that you are pregnant. Try to relax and your period should start soon.
