Chances of pregnancy

I was fooling around with a guy. He touched his penis to take it out, and then soon after fingered me. I'm probably being overly paranoid here, but I'm nervous that there could have been sperm/pre-ejaculate on his penis before he touched me. Am I overreacting?

Thank you so much for your response, I really appreciate it. I'll be talking to my doctor about any prenatal testing that we can possibly do, I think I'll only feel settled once I know for sure.

Hi abletobe - Sorry you're so stressed right now when you need your energy for your baby. There is a teeny, tiny chance that you should be worried, but the odds are in your favor that you don't need to be concerned. As you said, conception dates are estimates, with a margin of error. I hope you can find a way to reconcile your personal concerns, find peace of mind with your situation and go on to have a healthy pregnancy. We wish you the best.

I'm sorry, I should probably provide complete details here so you have the full story. My husband and have been trying to get pregnant. My cycles are irregular, but I had been doing Ovulation Predictor tests.
-Positive looking OPK on 5/21...but think this was off.
-My husband and I had sex on 5/23
-The situation in the pst above above, a one time indiscretion that i highly, highly regret, took place on 5/27.
-After confirming my pregnancy, my 12 week ultrasound dating estimated my conception date at 5/28. I have read that there is a margin of error in ultrasound dating, which is my biggest hope right now.
Obviously, I'm freaking out. I know that DNA is the only 100% way to tell who the father is, but I am very nervous about the invasive prenatal tests in order to obtain the sample.
Aside from feeling like just the most horrible person in the world, I'm a nervous wreck and I know its not good for the baby. I'm just trying to understand exactly how worried I should be about that second encounter, which happened exactly as I described. ANy guidance or help is immensely appreciated.
