My GF does not want to use BC pills, but i would like to be as safe as possible.
When we have sex I always use spermicidal condoms + "concptrol" a spermicidal gel.
by the time i get to full erection, i get pre ejaculatory fluid all over my hands so i might get some of it on the out-side of the condom while placing it with my hands.

does this act create a pregnancy risk ?
is this a safe practice ?

Any time you're having intercourse, there will be some pregnancy risk. But using birth control properly will greatly reduce this.

We have a good article on proper condom use here: Condom Basics: A User's Manual

Spermicidal gel (or even the small amount of spermicides on condoms) can be irritating to some people, so if your partner reports any discomfort after intercourse, you may want to explore other options. If a condom does not break, spermicides don't offer any additional protection, so if you have your condom use down perfectly, it's less likely to be needed. If you do have a break, however, the spermicide can help reduce the risk.
