If a guy rubs your clitoris with a clean hand, can you get pregnant?

Hi, I have a question. Around 3 days before my ovulation, my boyfreind and I were doing some heavy petting. Somewhat into our heavy petting, he started to rub my clitoris with his hand. Before so, I asked when he last masturbated and he said he masturbated the night prior and he showered earlier that morning. Well, my ovulation happened around 4 days ago (according to my period app, Flo) and I feel very light cramps occasionally. His hand was absolutely clean but i’m still worried. My period’s in 11 days. Some more info, he didn’t actually go into my vagina when he rubbed me, and we’ve done this before ans I still got my period. I just don’t think we’ve done it so close to my ovulation. Also I’ve been walking so much more than usual lately so I don’t know if that’s contributing to the light pains in my abdomen.
I need an answer please, thank you.

Hello Zitchbaar

There is little risk to no risk of pregnancy. Your boyfriend would have to have live sperm (ejaculate) on his finger and insert it into your vagina to cause pregnancy.

Thank you. Is it normal to feel light cramping after ovulation though?

Some women do get light cramping around ovulation time. Don't worry about pregnancy - it cannot occur based on what happened.
