Birth control, please help me

I am on Birth Control, and have been regulated on it for 5 months. I had my period 2 weeks ago and it ended thursday ( 2 thursdays ago). I had spotting on Friday, so I took my birth control pill on Saturday morning, I changed the time I took my birth control from the evening to the morning right after my period. SO on Saturday I took the pill saturday morning, and on sunday morning. My boyfriend came over on sunday afternoon. I gave him a handjob and he ejaculated and we both washed our hands. He said he didn't even have anything on his hands in the first place, but he still washed them. After about 15-20 minutes he fingered me. On tuesday of last week I started feeling kind of crappy. I had headaches and felt dizzy and had a little cough. I statred freaking out because I thought I was pregnant, and something crazy like that. I'm bloated and my breasts are tender, but those are normal signs of being on birth control, and I have had those before. But I have also obsessed about being pregnant before, so could I just be having headache and stomach problems due to stress? Or could it be because I changed the time I took my birth control from 9pm (before my period- 2 weeks ago) to 5:30am (after I had my period). I haven't missed a day on my birth control. I've been a little constipated but if I eat berries of any kind, it makes me poop. So, I highly DOUBT I'm pregnant. Please, Please help me.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You can not get pregnant from having semen in your hands.  There has to intercourse or very close ejaculation to the vaginal opening.  In order, for the sperm to live and swim up to the cervix.  Your symptoms can be due to the pills and because you changed the time you take them, don't believe it would give you these symptoms.  You might need to let your doctor know how you feel, he might be able to find another type of birth control pill that works best for you.
