Should I take a pregnancy test ?

My bf ejaculated on my hand a week ago , it was the 8th day of my menstrual cycle, the 2nd day after my previous period has just ended . I wiped my hand with a tissue but am not sure if there was no traces of semen trapped under my long finger nails and also my hand was a bit sticky. Then i accidentally forgot and scratched myself down there and touched myself while changing my underwear.
Since then i have non stop cramps and spasms and i feel very bloated. Could it be a sign that i got pregnant ?

Should i take a pregnancy test ? Cuz my nxt period is after at least 2 weeks and am super stressed !
Can sperms still be alive under fingernails or on skin and get inside my vagina ?
And if am not pregnant why am i having these non stop cramps since then?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your questions.

Sperm lives outside the body for about 20 minutes.

Wait until your period is late by at least seven days and then test for pregnancy.

Try your best to relax, because stress will cause a delay.
