Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sperms can stay alive in wet environment for hours. If the hands were not washed well and not dried enough, then chances are that traces could be present. Also if there was semen or pre-cum leak during intercourse, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. Sometimes periods can also be delayed due to stress, changes in lifestyle, hormonal changes, changes in exercise levels, etc for 5-10 days which is considered to be normal variation in your menstrual cycle length. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
