Have I put myself at risk of pregnancy

I'm kinda worried. I don't know if I'm just over thinking this. Im a virgin. But I've been near sperm a couple times. So on one occassion my boyfriend was touching my vulva. He went near the vaginal opening but not up it. His hands were dry but what if he had traces of pre-ejaculate on them? He went to the toilet right before. Another time he got sperm on my belly and on my breasts, it didn't drip down because there was only a little bit but is there any risks here? I also gave my boyfriend a blowjob and swallowed the pre-ejaculate what if the stomach acid didn't kill it?. I understand that the only way to reach the uterus is through the vagina but what if the sperm is present in the urine that when I pee it out, it gets really close to my vagina and gets back in me? So sorry if I sound stupid. I have very bad anxiety :( and is this factual info that you give?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
I can give you factual information to calm your fears.
First of all, the only way to become pregnant is if the male ejaculates into the vagina during penetration.
Sperm cannot travel over dry surfaces on its own and it dies within a few minutes in open air. Any live sperm on your boyfriends fingers when he touched you cannot make you pregnant either. The sperm is not strong enough to survive being handled in that fashion, nor can it travel through the vaginal cavity through fingering.
Swallowing semen and then urinating cannot cause pregnancy either.
You do not have anything to worry about.
I highly encourage you to read more about outercourse and pregnancy at the link below. It will hopefully save you a lot of stress in the future.
