Could I be pregnant?

Okay so about 28 days ago my boyfriend and I messed around. I gave him a handjob and then he fingered me. He cleaned himself up a little bit with a napkin but some could have gotten on his hand before fingering me. When I asked him later( should have before) if his hand was clean/dry he said he was some what positive that it was, but there is a possibility that it wasn't. Lately I've been worrying myself sick I think. I think it's so bad that I have fake pregnancy symptoms. But I am still very worried I may be pregnant. What is the probability that I am pregnant? Or am I just really worrying myself. I looked up symptoms of anxiety and stress and I seem to have most of them but a lot of them coincide with pregnancy symptoms. I'm very scared. Could anyone help?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
There is no possible way you can become pregnant from this event. You can relax.
The ONLY way you can become pregnant is if your boyfriend ejaculates directly into your vagina during penetration.
Even if there was some sperm on his hand, it cannot survive, and make you pregnant. It is simply not how the science works.
If you worry about pregnancy even without having sex, then maybe you are not ready to be sexually involved.

Thank you! A lot of sites say that it is possible if he had semen on his hands and it some how reached my cervix. Does sperm really die once it hits air though?
