No, it is not possible. In order for you to get pregnant, sperm has to fertilize an egg. Without intercourse, it's virtually impossible to get pregnant.

Anything which brings viable sperm into contact with a viable egg can cause pregnancy. So if, for example, you gave a guy a handjob and then masturbated with his semen still on your fingers, you could get pregnant. You don't necessarily need intercourse.

I don't think it's likely. ^^' If you haven't had intercourse, there isn't much of a possibility. ^^ Don't worry, it's not that bad of a question, Your not the only one whose ever asked it (^^' I have before.)


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

If a sperm comes into contact with an egg, it's possible to get pregnant. Although it's not as likely without intercourse, it's possible through other means, like how Acheron said.

There is no way you can get pregnant without having sex.


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Hi Beth,

It's not a dumb question. As you can see, everyone has a different answer, so you certainly aren't the only one who is confused.

The short answer is yes, you can get pregnant without having sex, but it is unlikely.

The longer answer is that in order to get pregnant, sperm needs to get inside your vagina and fertilise an egg. Almost always, this is achieved through intercourse. However, if sperm was to get into your vagina another way (like if your partner ejaculated near your vagina without actually being inside), then you could get pregnant. It is very unlikely, but the risk does remain.

Not true Nick, C'mon bro!!! In vitro alone argues against that.

All the sperm has to do is be introduced into, OR ( pay attention fellow youngsters) around the opening of the vagina. Once it's there, no matter how it got there, it is designed to, and will try to make the trip to the tube where the egg is. Chance of success not good, but not zero either.

It's very very very unlikely, something you shouldn't worry about.

I like your thinking process.

I can't believe so many people answered no before somebody said that.


To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget

The OP wasn't asking about In Vitro, so what would be the point of bringing it up.

Sperm doesn't last too long once it has hit the air, so if you did get it inside you by other means such as fingering, then chances are very low.

Potato potato... What's the bottom line answer here? Is it possible without sex as in penetration and ejaculation inside? He answer is yes. Not highly likely, but yes it is possible. I don't want any of my friends thinking they can shoot it anywhere near the v opening and have no chance of causing pregnancy. There is a chance.

In theory, no. BUT. There are cases in which you can. Whenever you come into contact with sperm. So there are cases with mutual masturbation in which it could happen, or just overall being careless and not paying attention to what you are doing. But not likely.


I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.
