How likely is it that I'm pregnant?

I am aware that a pregnancy is unlikely in my situation but I've seen some very mixed results for people in my situation and would like to submit my own question.
My boyfriend and I engaged in fingering and naked genital rubbing (no more than 10 seconds) but no penetration.

Ejaculation happened 10 minutes after on my chest. I am aware that a sperm and an egg are needed to cause pregnancy. I am concerned about pre-ejaculate during our genital rubbing. Not knowing the risk until after, I grabbed plan b, took it 23 hours after the incident to be absolutely safe. My period was due in 2 days and came in 3 days. Was slightly lighter and lasted 6 days instead of my usual 8. Side effects were fatigue, sore breasts, nausea and mild abdominal discomfort.

Then, midway through this cycle, I started to get constantly bloated, and it was severe. Nausea was common and some mild abdominal discomfort. Constipation became a real problem. My digestive system was affected severely. I got my second period on time, slightly lighter than usual. (29 day cycle). Bloating was constant throughout the next one too. No more tender breasts and nausea started to slow down.

3 negative pregnancy tests.
This continued until my third period which came 5 days early and was lighter than usual again. I am still bloated and had 2 more negative tests. Still experiencing slight abdominal discomfort.

What is the likelihood of pregnancy? Is it even possible?
It is important to note I have been more than stressed throughout this entire ordeal.
I have learned my lesson and will always use a condom and will get on the pill asap.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
I'd like to explain why you are not pregnant from these events. First of all, pre-ejaculate does not always contain sperm. When it does, the sperm can be damaged very easily. If there is no penetration, it is very unlikely the sperm will enter the vagina at all.
Secondly, after you took emergency contraception you started to have all the usual side effects: bleeding a few days later, nausea, cramping tender breasts etc. Taking EC correctly will effectively prevent pregnancy.
The negative pregnancy tests are a further indication that you are not pregnant.
I suggest you try to reduce your stress and see a doctor is you continue to have digestive issues.
No need to worry about pregnancy.

Hi, it's the same person that asked the question again. It's been 3 months since the incident and I'm still getting symptoms. All my periods have been unusually short, I have a growing belly and fatigue. Also excess discharge and sore breasts. Are you sure that I cannot be pregnant?

Thank you for answering! This consolidates what I thought. Maybe I can put this all behind me now.
