Pregnancy worries without intercourse

I'm really freaking out right now. My partner and I were "messing around" yesterday afternoon, June 17, 2016. He fingered me and I gave him a hand job. After a few moments, he let our genitals touch, no where near my vaginal opening but just right around the top of the vulva. He said there was no pre ejaculate on his genital or anything fluid at all when his genital touched mine. Also, his fingers did not touch his genital before he inserted them in me. Does this occurrence pose a risk of pregnancy? And this happened a day or two after my period. Hoping for your response.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Outercourse cannot cause pregnancy. You must have intercourse where the male ejaculates into your vagina during penetration in order to pregnancy to occur. You do not need to worry about pregnancy.
I suggest that you read the article at the link below. It talks more about outercourse and pregnancy.

That's a relief! Thank you so much for your response. I have one more question though. Even if our genitals touched (the top of my vulva and his penis touched) but there was no pre-ejaculate or any fluid, there's no risk of pregnancy, right? Thanks again!!

That's correct. There is no chance of pregnancy because no sperm entered your vagina.
Keep in mind in the future that you also need to be ovulating for pregnancy to occur. Ovulation happens about 12-15 days after your period. Sperm can live in the body about 4 or 5 days.
