If sperm is on your hands will it die pretty quickly or does it take a long time?

Hey guys. Im very stressed. So a couple weeks ago me and my gf were having fun. I came over myself and I wiped it off with my hands and later wipped my hands off. 3 or so min later I fingered her. Not sure if I had semen on my hand or not but I pretty sure it was dry. Could I have gotten her pregnant?p

My bf and I fooled around on the 27th. My period is really irregular so I never know when to expect that or ovulation. But my last period started on the 13th and lasted for about 5-6 days. Anyway, I'm not sure he fingered me with pre-cum on his hands. When he did ejaculate on my hand I wiped it off. Like between an hour or two later after reading a book at home (and a few other things) I masturbated but it was deep inside. The next day I felt weird and after eating sick. I don't know if I was ovulating or anything( since I can't track periods exactly) like it but what are my chances of being pregnant? Even if I took the AM pill within the 72 hour window? Please? I know it was wrong and stupid and irresponsible! But is it just stress causing this?

Hi Anon

If sperm was deposited, then there is certainly a risk of pregnancy. Unfortunately, you have left it too late to take an emergency contraceptive pill but if you don't get your period when expected, take a pregnancy test. If there was no ejaculation at all, then you should be fine.

Hi. My girlfriend and i just had sex. Then, i wiped my penis with wet tissue afterwards. I wiped it very well and it has been exposed to the fan. After a minute i guess, we had sex again. Is there a possibility she could get pregnant? We're really worried right now.
