Pregnancy without intercourse


Q: Hello, i am 19 years old and a virgin. it is my time of the month and i had cramps yesterday morning, and was excepting my period. I fooled around with my BF that after noon, i cannot recall if he had preejaculate on his hands, he touched the outside of my genitals for a minute, but we did not have intercourse, i then started thinking about this and freaking over whether or not i could become pregnant from this. I am very stressed, and today i had cramps all day, and it looks like i started my period but it is very light and coming down slowly. Do you think this is a side effect of stress and worrying, or could this actually be a pregnancy. I would really appreciate it if you could put my mind to ease.
