Period 3 weeks late, fingered w/ pre-ejaculate 23 days ago. Negative qualitative blood pregnancy test yesterday. Could I be pregnant still?

In brief: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate.

They are the same tests used in a doctors office.
They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection

In brief: Highly unlikely

Pre-ejaculation fluid, often referred to as "pre-cum", mostly contains no sperm or non-motile (dead) sperm. This fluid is mainly expressed from glands that surround the urethra serving a lubricating function for the ejaculation that follows.
However, most men can't fully perceive when pre-cum occurs and on rare occasions, a small amount of ejaculate is released which does contain motile sperm.
