If I touched sperm, washed my hands, and an hour or more later accidentally touched around the vagina after going to the bathroom, is there any risk of pregnancy? And if so, how much?

That's exactly what happened about two-two and a half weeks ago. And I'm fairly sure nothing is wrong, since it was a long time before my hand even got CLOSE to that area, but I normally get my period from the 16th to 25th of the month, and now that it's the 16th, I'm getting nervous about it, lol. So, is it possible that I could be pregnant?

Hi Anonymous,
Since you washed your hands after contact with sperm, you remove any sperm from your hands. Therefore, you could not have introduced any sperm into your vagina when you used the bathroom. Try to relax because stress can cause a delay in the start of a period. Hope this helps!
