If clorox gets inside of your vagina, cam it cause fertility issues?

My boyfriend was cleaning with clorox and he got it all over his hands. He ran his hands under water, but not much soap or anything with it. About 10 minutes later, we got to "fooling around", and he fingered me. It didn't really burn or anything, but I thought about it, and now I am wondering if it can cause any harm or damage fertility wise? I can't stop thinking about this... Thank you.

Clorox, which is sodium hydroclorite, may cause severe irritation or damage to the skin and eyes and is harmful if swallowed. It will not cause infertility or affect fertility in any way.
