Peace be with you.: It is impossible to get pregnant that way. Sperm can't live under those conditions even if they were present. Please don't diagnose yourself w/OCD. You may have a very specific phobia. Please see a mental health professional or your doctor. Think about how you feel about sex, men, having children, etc. A healthy and non-judgmental spiritual leader may also be helpful. Peace and good health.

Sounds like it!: "Obsessive" is the repetitive thoughts about it. "Compulsive" is the repetitive activities (such as touching certain things, cleaning things, using barriers like gloves or tissues to avoid directly touching things). There is professional treatment for this, with commonly used medications... that sometimes can be started through one's primary care doctor (if a simple case) or a psychiatrist.
