I have a feeling that I am irrationally concerned, but I could use some reassurance.
My potential scare was on 9/19. My girlfriend and I engaged in manual sex. I ejaculated (nowhere near her vulva), and not on my hands. I briefly touched some of the semen with the palms of my hand, and then wiped off, washed my hands twice, urinated, and washed again. My girlfriend washed as well.
I then briefly touched a mildly damp spot of semen on the bed, but wiped my hand on the sheet. I performed oral and manual sex on my girlfriend. I may have used the finger that touched the damp spot, but not before it was completely wiped off. We then spooned, but I kept my pelvis away from her and had no g to g contact.
She has since had what she says are 3 periods complete with PMS (cramping, etc.) and heavy bleeding for 2-3 days. I do not believe she has had any other bleeding.
Here's my question. I don't believe any of the above poses a risk, and I know that she is the best authority on what a period is and is not. I have, however, heard about decidual bleeding, so that has been on my mind. She also has gained a little weight, and felt nauseous this morning (she threw up once, but her doctor has said that there may be a 24 hr bug going around). I know that, by themselves, these things aren't necessarily concerning, but taken together, my imagination has been racing.
