I had a medical abortion 4 and a half weeks ago due to being irresponsible and I have learned my lesson.
Although, absent mindedly 3 weeks after the procedure, my boyfriend and I were doing stuff and he possibly touched his penis adjusting himself and a few minutes afterwards touched me through my underwear and then began fingering me. I'm worried about the possibly small amount of pre cum on his fingers. I've read that there could be a pregnancy risk some places and others that there isn't.
I started the pill the day after the procedure which would protect me immediately means there's even less of a chance of pregnancy, but I've been driving myself crazy for a week researching and unable to sleep at night. I would just like a reply to my specific situation.
I would take a pregnancy test but due to the procedure it possibly wouldn't be accurate, and I'm a bit ashamed to go to my doctor because I feel insanely irresponsible.
Thanks for any replies, they would be greatly appreciated!

Hi rockthecasbah and Welcome to Scarleteen,
no, what you describe does not pose a pregnancy risk.
I think you would find it helpful to have a good sense for what is and isn't a pregnancy risk. i'm going to give you a few articles to read through about pregnancy risks and human reproduction.
I also want to say that, while I do understand your feelings of uncertainty and shame around this, you have nothing to be ashamed of. learning these things is part of taking care of your health, and any good doctor or other healthcare provider would see things the same way I do. So, if going to your doctor is what you need to do to help you make sense of this, I personally (and professionally) don't think that's something you need to hold yourself back from doing.
let's get you that information though and see if it doesn't clear things up for you.
