Could I be pregnant?

So about 22 days ago, my bf and I decided to try anal sex for the first time. He missed and touched my vaginal opening a few times, only a few seconds each time. We didn't use protection but he didn't ejaculate at all. He says that the most would've been pre-ejaculate. He didn't ejaculate at all that day and says that he pissed before we started, which I hope means that there couldn't have been sperm in his pre-ejaculate. Till now, I haven't felt any sensitive nipples, no food cravings/aversions, no spotting (implantation bleeding), no new bathroom routines or anything. The only things I have felt is a mild upper back pain, slight headache (lasted 10 mins), slight moodswings (but its normal for me) and an occasional minor cramp mid-stomach. It's been about 36 days since my last period, but I have an irregular cycle. However, I still have not felt any period symptoms that I usually feel... Could I be pregnant..? Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
If you miss your period completely, take a pregnancy test. However, pregnancy is very unlikely in this scenario for several reasons. First of all, he did not ejaculate. Second, if he did had pre-ejaculate on his penis when it touched the vagina, it could not have traveled through the vaginal canal and past the cervix.
Often pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm that is able to cause pregnancy anyhow.
Your period can still come over the next few days.
Periods can be irregular for reasons unrelated to pregnancy as well such as stress, medication, or changes in diet or exercise.
Check on the pink below. It is an article that talks more about reasons for later periods.
