Could I still be pregnant??

I went on a road trip with my partner and we had some 'fun'. He had came on my hands and his jeans along with my shirt and well, we weren't really by a bathroom to wash our hands or clean up. We had changed shirts and jeans just to be safe, but he had touched the shirts with his ejaculate on it. We did have handsanitizer. He had used the sanitizer about 4 I think maybe 5 times. And after about 10 minutes, he had fingered me and I didn't think anything of it. We got back home about a 4 hours ago, and now(12:30am) I can't sleep and I feel sick and dizzy. I know that handsanitizer is for killing germs, not sperm, but was it enough to kill any sperm left on either of us before he had fingered me? I know there are many possibilities to why I have felt sick, i.e. the common cold, pre-menstrual cycle symptoms, eating bad food, not enough water, the fact it snowed in April, starting my spring sport and my everyday routine being thrown off, etc. etc. But, I do want to make sure that I'm not just being uber paranoid, and this site has helped me in the past..

Thanks to all who help me out, it is greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
There is no possibility of pregnancy from this scenario. Sperm only lives a few minutes in open air if not handled. By the time he fingered you, there was no healthy sperm on his hands.
There only way to become pregnant you have intercourse and the male ejaculates into your vagina during penetration.
I highly recommend that you read the HER article at the link below that talks more about outercourse and pregnancy.
