Hi. I am on the pill, however don't take it spot on on time - I take it every night somewhere between 6pm - 11pm. Anyway I have not had intercourse however I went on the pill free week. A couple of days before the withdrawal bleed started. I became curious and started touching my cervix with toilet paper - I was really pushing it up - so I could feel the cervix. I did this a few times over a couple of days. Afterwards, I became extremely worried that this may cause a pregnancy? I thought what if I touched something that was traced with semen/sperm and now it has been placed in my vagina on my cervix? A day after I did this I started my withdrawal bleed. It lasted its normal three days. Could this have gotten me pregnant?I am continuing normal use of my pills now. Can anyone give me some advice. I'm really nervous. thank you

Hello deesam,

Please relax. You are not pregnant because you had menstrual bleeding.
There is no way you could have conceived by touching your cervix with a piece of toilet tissue. By the way, sperm lives outside of the body for about 20 minutes to one hour. Once it dries, it dies.
