Emergency Contraception Needed or Am I Being Paranoid?...

Hello! I'm very very very new to this site and have been in a right pickle this month!
I recently switched from Rigevidon (the combined pill) to Evra (the combined patches) however nobody seemed to really understand how/what they were and how they worked which unfortunately led to me panicking and resulted in me using Ellaone (used at the beginning of the cycle) AND levonelle (twice so far in this cycle).
It's so so so stupid and I know that I shouldn't have panicked and I should've gone with my gut but I'm very new to contraception which is why I'm switching to the Nexplanon implant in January (YAY FINALLY!).

My question is this, unfortunately I feel as though I've had an incident which although might seem minuscule (I gave my SO a 'hand' so to speak in which resulted in ejaculation, whilst I knew to make sure that I was clothed and had the quilt wrapped around me to prevent any risk afterwards I can't remember if he touched my lower stomach/pubic area afterwards? I can't remember if his hand was wet from when he did clean up or not and I'm panicking as to whether I should/could take another pill or not...)
I'm now on my break week for the patch (they advised me to carry on taking my contraception rather than stop and then start up my contraception again) and I'm just concerned whether or not I could be at risk really? I can't measure my ovulation now because of the pills but it's also risky leaving it because it may delay my period which might trigger ovulation from the previous pills...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Dear NervousNelly.

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer.

No worries; if you did not have intercourse and he did not ejaculate inside you, you have no risk of being pregnant.
