Terrified I might be pregnant?

Okay. I'm 17 years old and me and my boyfriend have been together for three years. We have finally decided to have sex because we feel completely ready. Ever since the beginning of June, we have been fooling around in ways I feel pose a risk of pregnancy. Here are a list of things we usually do..
1. Naked grinding
2. Genital rubbing with no clothing
3. Showering together
4. Mimicking sex positions naked but not actually inserting just rubbing if that makes any sense?

He has NEVER ejaculated and has NEVER went inside me during any of these activities. At all. Pre-ejaculate is what I'm concerned about. Two weeks ago, we were naked grinding after I gave him oral sex in which he did ejaculate after that. We cleaned up before we started grinding though. I have been on birth control with perfect use for almost three months now. But I know that once fluids meet with other fluids sperm will find a way. Long story short, without penetration or ejaculation just POSSIBLE pre-ejaculate on a wet vulva, could I be pregnant? I did get my expected withdrawal bleed on my placebo week last Wednesday and it lasted 6 days as well. I'm just worried I could be pregnant still since some women have period like bleeding while pregnant. (Sorry for the long description)

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You cannot bemuse pregnant from any of the events you described and I'll explain why.
First of all, birth control stops ovulation so there is no egg for the sperm to fertilize. Further more, your boyfriend did not penetration, nor ejaculate in your vagina. Without an egg there is no chance of pregnant. Without sperm either, there is even less chance.
Also, sperm dies within a few minutes of being in open air. It cannot travel over dry surfaces.
The bottom line in that outercourse cannot cause pregnancy. Since you are on birth control pills, intercourse cannot cause pregnant either unless you stop taking the pill for a week or more. Being off the pill for a week or more gives your body to chance to ovulate and that is when pregnancy can occur once more.
I hope that helps.
