About two weeks ago i was messing around with my boyfriend. I washed my hands with soap and water twice after that and then I accidentally put the tip of my finger in but quickly remembered and took it out. They have told me there is no way i could be pregnant since either water washed them off and soap can kill sperm, also, that there wasn't any direct sexual contact. I'm a bit of a hypochondriac and I have been literary worried sick this past week, I even believe i start making up symptoms. Professional answers would do so much help.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had washed your hand with soap and water, there is no chance that sperms could be present. If there has been no direct contact of vagina with semen or pre-cum, and if you were not around your peak fertile days or ovulation tie at time of sexual contact, chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. Wait and watch for your periods. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if not ready for pregnancy. 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.
