Could I be pregnant?

I'm 4 days late for my period. I started my period in June 2014. It's always been a little iregular. However I'm worried if I've put myself at risk of being pregnant. My boyfriend tends to ajust his penis a lot and I'm always paranoid that he gets pre-ejaculate on his hand while doing so. After he always slides his hands down my jeans to touch my butt and public area. If the hand is dry does that mean no sperm? Also something else is making me worry. I sat on the toilet and the water splashed my vaginal opening. What if the pee that splashed my vagina had left over sperm in from a previous ejaculation from someone else. This happened several times last week. I am very uneducated on this type of info so a detailed and explained answer will be so much appriciated. Thank you so much.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
I would love to give you a clearer idea of how pregnancy occurs.
First of all, none of the scenarios you described can cause pregnancy. Sperm is very delicate and cannot survive more than a few minutes in open air and also becomes damaged if handle.
Sperm does not accompany urine. Sperm would only be in the toilet if a male ejaculated directly into the toilet and did not flush. Even if that did happen and somehow the sperm splashed on your vagina, it would not be capable of making you pregnant, not only because you probably wiped in off immediately, but also because the sperm in not able to automatically travel from one place to another.
During adolescent years it is common to have irregular and even missed periods because your hormones are still balancing themselves. It does not indicate your reproductive system is unhealthy in any way and it does not mean you are pregnant.
The only way you can become pregnant is if a male ejaculates into your vagina during penetration.
Below I have posted a link to a HER article that explains more about sex and pregnancy:
