Can I get pregnant from no penetration?

I can't believe I'm asking this but I'm a very paranoid individual.
Basically, me and my boyfriend engaged in sexual activities the other day, but no actual intercourse with penetration.
To be explicit, he fingered me and I gave him a handjob, to which he arrived on himself, as far as I could remember he did not ejaculate anywhere near my vaginal area.
We also engaged in dry sex, we both had our underwear on and he didn't ejaculate during that but I'm pretty sure he may have had precm on his boxers, may I also point out this happened on day 20 of my cycle, so theoretically I wasn't ovulating or at a 'risky' fertile time. From what I've described, do you think there is any way I could become pregnant from this?

I know it may sound silly but I would just like some reassurance, thankyou.

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

There is a risk of pregnancy when a woman has unprotected sex with ejaculation inside her vagina or (more rarely) on the opening. Accidents can happen, so it’s best to use protection.

Thanks Helena, yes I am aware of this but we didn't have unprotected sex and he did not ejaculate near my vagina, so this didn't really answer my question? Is there any chance, from what I described above, that I can get pregnant from that encounter?

It does because I'm telling you what would need to occur in order to be at risk. It's not your scenario.
