Pregnancy unlikely: One of the advantages of oral sex is that has built-in contraception (sperm can't naturally swim to the egg, when the sperm is in somebody's mouth). Women have a really hard time getting pregnant through oral sex... as long as it's purely oral sex. Other worries, such as about sexually transmitted infections in the mouth and throat, are valid worries... but why the hand-washing?
Dr. Roger Duvivier

Why worry or anxious: Be happy and be safe. Protect yourself by (1) using an effective contraceptive like an IUD, a subdermal implant or Depo-provera, (2) using condoms (3) knowing your sex partners...Enjoy yourself responsibly.
