can you get pregnant if your boyfriend fingers you after he got sperm on his hand but his hand dried?

"Dried not washed": His hand was "dried" but not washed. That is akin to James Bond's "shaken but not stirred" line in his movie series. In other words, the sperm on his hand inserted into your vagina can possibly get you pregnant. It is imperative to use contraception of any kind which is better than none.

Doubtful: Sperm may live outside the body for 20-60 minutes. Hypothetically some viable sperm could be introduced into the vagina in this way, but pregnancy would be unlikely.

Several Options: If you recentry injured the area of concern, then a tendon injury is possible. If not. You could have developed a ganglion cyst which tends to be common in the wrist and hand. I would have a physician examine it to find out what would be the next step.
