Can I get pregnant from dried semen and precm?

I need your help bad, 3 days ago my boyfriend and I were fooling around (we had clothes on) and I was giving him a hand job with my left hand (because I had a ring on my right) and we wiped the semen using a towel so I had dried semen on hand and so did he. After that I buckled my pants because the zipper opened up and checked if I was wet but I can't remember if the hand I used was my left hand or right.
Then after an hour he rubbed my vagina inside my pants but an hour before he said he held and fixed his penis and it had precm. I've been feeling nauseous for 3 days now, can I take the morning after pill? I'm scared if I'm pregnant. Also we did this right after my period was over (28 day cycle and I had my period for 6 days) I really need your help

Dear Anon,

Thank you for writing to us, today.

If semen has died, the sperm is dead. That doesn't mean you shouldn't wash your hands for hygienic reasons. Pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm. But, it can pick up sperm remaining in the urethra (the tube through which urine and semen pass) from a previous ejaculation. Once a man urinates, any sperm would be flushed out. There is a risk of pregnancy when a woman has unprotected sex with ejaculation inside (or rarely) on the opening to her vagina.
