Last period was 11th Sept. Was intimate on 26th Sept. No condom and no birth control. But no penetration, just precum on tip of penis brushed against vaginal entrance.
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry for the delay. For some reason, I couldn't see your answer until now.

You won't get pregnant without penetration. Precum at the vaginal entrance will not get you pregnant.

I think there is no chance that you got pregnant from that sex on 26 September. Best regards.

Okay thanks, ***** ***** wasn't sure that Pre-ejaculate contained active sperm (another fertility doctor said up to 25% of sperm can be in pre-cum), and second I wasn't sure that pre-ejaculate at vaginal entrance could mean that any active sperm could swim into and up the vaginal canal and fertilise an egg at the right Ovulation timing. Are there any details you could give above?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

Pre-ejaculate can contain sperm, but usually not in the large numbers required for pregnancy. Although only one sperm impregnates the egg, millions are required to assist the process.

A full ejaculate with millions of sperm won't cause a pregnancy unless some of the semen gets significantly inside the vagina. Sperm are good swimmers, but only if they have enough semen to swim in.

Thanks for that assurance. One more thing. After vaginal contact with Pre-ejaculate on tip of penis, there was fingering such that the fear would be some some pre ejaculate entered in. Would this pose a risk and if so how much?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

As I said, pre-ejaculate generally doesn't have enough sperm to cause a pregnancy, even when it's deposited near the cervix. Fingering won't get enough sperm inside to cause a pregnancy.
