Is it possible for a girl to become pregnant if the boyfriend ejaculated, but wiped off the semen and then inserted his fingers into her vagina?

So earlier today my boyfriend came over for a few hours, and we hardly ever see each other outside of school unless we go see a movie together. We have been dating for over a year and have recently started "fooling around" as in hand jobs and fingering I've been giving him the choice of either him fingering me first and then I give him a hand job or vice versa, but he has to wash his hands right after before fingering me. Well as for today I'm not exactly sure what happened first. By that, I mean I'm not sure if he fingered me first, then I gave him a hand job and he ejaculated or if I have him the hand job first, he ejaculated, and then he fingered me (neither of us were intoxicated or on drugs, so this was perfectly consensual and it is 3:00am here and I honestly just don't remember which happened first and he's asleep, so I can not ask him if he remembers). Either way, being caught up in the moment, neither of us washed our hands until we went to the bathroom 30 minutes-1 hour later. When he ejaculated we had paper towels with us, so we both wiped our hands off (not much was on either of us). If he fingered me after ejaculating, it was maybe 5-10 minutes after wiping our hands off. Since I can not remember the exact order of how things happened, I have been searching the Internet using different websites and rephrasing my questions for over an hour now, but I can't find an answer that relates to my story. I'm honestly terrified (needless to say nothing like this will be happening again in a very long time). Also, not sure how important this is in my case, but I am not on any type of birth control (my parents will not let me until I start college). So, now knowing the full story, is it possible that the sperm was still alive and that I have a chance of becoming pregnant?

Dear Anon,

Thank you for your post.

A woman cannot get pregnant unless she has unprotected sex with ejaculation inside her (or rarely) on the opening of her vagina. The scenario you describe is unlikely to cause pregnancy. But you need to be aware of what is going on during sex play. No one over the internet can give you guarantees. We can only provide information based on how pregnancy actually happens and what are considered to be highly unlikely scenarios.
