Does this cause a risk of pregnancy?

So I was with my boyfriend and I touched his penis over clothes (I think). I cannot recall touching his bare penis but I did slide my hands down his pants to feel his butt. Anyway, when I touched his penis over clothes It felt moist. Not sure if it was sweat/heat or pc. So after I went home. I went to the toilet and I think I touched my underwear by accident. Could any of the sperm that could of been on my hand travel into my vagina due to the underwear material that I had touched being right on my vaginA? Please help. I'm really confused and don't know much on this so could you give me a full explanation Aswell as if I actually have got a risk or not. Thank you so much :)

Hi Anon,

Thank you for your question.

No, the activity your describe can not cause pregnancy. Pregnancy is caused by unprotected (without any birth control), penis penetration of the vagina along with penis ejaculation.

I hope this helps.
Be well,
