Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The chances of pregnancy by touching the vagina with the hand which contains the precum is minimal.

Firstly, the chances of the precum containing the sperms are very less and secondly if it does contain sperms, their survival outside on the fingers is very less.

However, I would suggest getting serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests. The HCG (it is a hormone) levels rise only in pregnancy and its presence will confirm the status of her pregnancy.

If pregnancy is ruled out, then other causes of delayed periods need to be looked into.

It can happen because of hormonal imbalance, increased stress, eating disorder, alcohol or caffeine use and medical conditions like PCOS, fibroid, polyps and endometriosis.

So my suggestion would be to consult a gynecologist and get serum HCG levels done. Confirmation can be done by an ultrasound uterus.

Not only it clears the status of pregnancy but also can help in diagnosing medical conditions causing delayed periods.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
