So the only part of your body that had contact with his ejaculate was your hand?

A helpful way to think about it can be this: Sperm need a very specific environment in which to survive and do their job. That environment is semen. So, if semen makes any stop between the penis and vulva (the outside of female genitalia) or vagina, such as on a hand, the sperm will no longer be viable and cannot lead to a pregnancy. Also, the sperm use the semen to swim, so having a little bit on your hand, especially when it's already been exposed to the air even for a minute or two, really can't lead to pregnancy.

Does that make sense?

Yeah thanks, it was a minute or so then I wiped myself when going to the toilet, so the fact it was exposed to air then put in contact again mean that I couldn't really get pregnant ?

If there was no ejaculate in or near your vagina, you have not had a pregnancy risk.

Sperm cells can't be transfered by hand. Being on a hand makes them unable to help create a pregnancy. So being on a penis then on a hand then on a vulva isn't called 'direct' contact, as it's had a stop inbetween a vulva and a penis (the hand is a stop).

You need direct contact to cause pregnancy; direct contact between a vulva and a penis or a penis to ejaculate onto a vulva directly - as in, stright out on the penis and onto the vulva.

Not at all; it's been on a hand, that's enough to change it so the sperm cells can't move anywhere.

Because ejaculate dries up when exposed to air. And without the very specific environment of the ejaculate, sperm can't make it.

It takes a few minutes. But unless you have superpowers, it took you a little longer than 30 seconds to go from engaging in sexual activity with your boyfriend, to being done with using the toilet and wiping yourself.

But also, it takes more than some trace amounts of ejaculate on your hand to get you pregnant. If your boyfriend had come directly on your hand, and you had inserted that hand into your vagina right away, then you would need to worry about a risk. But with what you described - a small amount, the time between ejaculation and when you might have touched yourself, the fact that at most you touched your vulva - there is just no risk.

Like I said: you would need a hand full of fresh ejaculate, and you would need to insert it directly into your vagina.
