Hello Hollie5678

Thank you for writing.

The birth control pill would have been absorbed by your body four hours after taking it so there is no risk.

There is no risk of pregnancy anyway, based on what you said. You didn't have sex and had your clothes on. Fingering cannot get anyone pregnant.

There is no risk of pregnancy in your case.

I think it's a good idea for you to read up about sex education and the birth control pill so you know how birth control works (why you are taking it) and how your body works, biologically.
