What do you think?

Hi this may be a bit crazy but I'm quite the stressful person. I am on the pill, however, missed a couple of pills 5 weeks ago. Then on my withdrawal bleed I decided to check my cervix with my finger. Had been washed. Just checked because I was curious! Then afterwards, I had the thought that maybe this could cause me to get pregnant? Maybe I touched something? I'm a clean freak and this has me worried. It was 5 weeks ago and all my pregnancy tests have come back negative? Am I worrying over nothing? Would this be possible to become pregnant this way? I'm only worried because I have a pregnancy symptom of feeling like I need to urinate all the time. Please any advice would be truly appreciated!

Hi deesam,

Since you missed a couple of days of taking the pill.  If you had unprotected sex, then your chances for pregnancy to occur are higher.  You can not get pregnant from checking your cervix or touching.
