Pregnancy risks

My boyfriend and I were messing About! I feel really horrible.
I gave him a handjob and he ejaculated on himself. He wiped wiped tissues (tho I do not know if it was properly). He then put his trousers up and I sat on where he ejaculated on where there could've been semen but I know that sperm cannot get thru clothing, He then preceded on fingering me which is the thing that worries me. I remember him taking his hands, thru my jeans and underwear and finger me inside. I don't know if any sperm got on his hand when he was cleaning it up. Despite all the searching I do not know how long sperm can be useful. I havnt really got any obvious symptoms of pregnancy (only sore boobs which usually happen when I'm about to start my period anyway). Also for future reference if My boyfriend tells me it's impossible and even if he was to rub his penis above my vagina whilst naked would there be a risk ?

In sex education they only thought is how to protect yourself whilst having intercourse so I feel so stupid asking this question when there wasn't even any penetration of his penis going into my vagina
(Just his fingers)

Hello Anonymous,,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you came to us with your questions. I will do my best to provide you with answers and helpful information.

Sperm, once ejaculated, can live outside the body for about 20 minutes. Once semen has dried, sperm have died.

I thought there was any live sperm left on his fingers after he wiped off. Considering the time he took to wipe off the semen and put on his pants, any sperm that could remain was probably dead.

Unprotected vaginal intercourse is the most likely way to get pregnant. You can get pregnant if you engage in body rubbing with your clothes off. Sperm can come in contact with the vulva or vagina. Any type of sex play where semen comes in contact with the vulva can possibly lead to pregnancy. Although the chances are low, sperm can travel through the moisture on the vulva and into the vagina.

Anonymous, the best advice I can give you is to learn all you can about how pregnancy occurs, and available options of birth control. Using some type of birth control consistently will prevent an unwanted pregnancy.

So in the situation i described - do you think i have anything to worry about? Considering he touched his pants after and did not immediately finger me.
