sperm on fingers?

I am now more than a week late and am starting to get worried. I am going through a really stressful time, so at first I thought it is just the stress that's keeping my period away. But now I am wondering if I can possibly be pregnant. My boyfriend pleasured me with his fingers during the month and now I worry that there could possibly have been some sperm on his fingers. Is this possible? Can you get pregnant by him not having washed his hands first? I have also shared his toilet and am worried that I can get pregnant by his toiletpaper if he had some come on there.

I know I sound paranoid, but I am not usually this late. Is it just stress or should I be worried?

If your boyfriend ejaculated anywhere near your vulva, or ejaculated on his hands and then touched you immediately afterwards, pregnancy is possible. Otherwise not. You would not get pregnant from using the same toilet.
