Can I get pregnant by putting my boyfriends sperm in me?

As long as the ejaculate wasn't inside your body or on your vagina, you can't get pregnant. Ejaculate on the outside of your body isn't a pregnancy risk. But if your partner ejaculates near your vagina and then fingers you, they may push some of the semen into your vagina. If this happens, pregnancy is possible.
