Did you ask him if he had ejaculated and gotten the semen on his hand before fingering you? It is possible for a guy to masturbate, get semen on his hand, and then finger a girl and make her get pregnant. Admittedly, it’s not the easiest way to get a girl pregnant, but it still is quite a risky thing to do, particularly if you’re not trying to get pregnant. Based on how long your normal monthly cycle might be, July 4 could be around the time that you are ovulating and when you could get pregnant.
However, I’m going to strongly side with you not being pregnant and that the late (or missed) period is due to all the stress you’re experiencing and due to any worries you might have, fearing that you’re pregnant. The probability is definitely in your favor for not being pregnant. I would recommend to pop into a dollar store (or Walmart/Target) and pick up a home pregnancy test. Then, take it first thing in the morning with your concentrated pee. Be sure to carefully read and follow the directions and check the test during the time limit the instructions specify.
Don’t forget to let us know the results!
