Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sperms can stay alive for 20-30 minutes in dry environment, and if traces of semen or sperms were present when you touched vagina, chances of sperm transfer is possible resulting in pregnancy (especially if you had been around your fertile days/ovulation time). You may consider taking ECP if worried about pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods that might be delayed (if you take ECP). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If pregnancy is suspected, or if you miss your periods, or if you have abnormal periods, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if not ready for pregnancy, and avoid repeat use of ECP. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
