Genuine Pregnancy Scare Question

I know this may be a silly question but it's a genuine one.
The other day my boyfriend and I were messing around -- by the way this was the second day of my period.
I ended up getting precum on my fingers. I just wiped it off and continued kissing him.
Roughly 15-25 minutes later I came home and went to the bathroom. Without thinking I wiped myself with the same hand that had gotten precum on it. I know, stupid and gross for not remembering to wash my hands first. I just had honestly already forgotten anything had been on them.

I know that precum can contain sperm in it. I know he hasn't actually ejaculated in probably over two months because he has varicocele. I read urine cleans out any traces of sperm that might have been left over from a previous ejaculation; thus, causing the next precum not to contain any sperm.
I was just wondering if you feel I should have any concern for possible pregnancy since I did in fact wipe myself using the same hand that previously had precum on it.
I ask this question because I'm afraid that by touching the toilet paper before using it might have caused precum to transfer from my fingers, onto the toilet paper, and onto myself -- if there had happened to be any traces of precum left on them after wiping them off.
We both have career paths we're trying to achieve and just the thought of acting careless and preventing this devastates me. I'm not typically this paranoid but I recently stopped my birth control 2 months ago because I want to switch brands.
Thank you for reading this, it will truly help out a worried soul.

Hi bd112,

Thank you for your question. You cannot get pregnant from having dried up pre-ejaculate on your hand and then wiping yourself. So no worries, you are fine.

Hope this helps,
