Contrary to what most people believe, pregnancy without sex is possible. Sexual intercourse or penetration is not the only means through which a woman may get pregnant.
The most common way of getting pregnant is by having unprotected vaginal intercourse. This involves the male's organ ejaculating semen inside the female's organ.

Besides artificial insemination, women could get pregnant without having vaginal sex, according to experts. Clinical professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, explained to BuzzFeed how this could be possible.
If a sperm is released close enough or around the vulva, they are capable of traveling inside the vagina. The sperm is designed to swim their way towards the vaginal canal. Thus, making pregnancy without explicit sexual intercourse possible.
Another factor to consider concerning pregnancy without actual sex is the ability of sperm to survive outside the body. This sticky fluid, according to experts, can survive in a warm and moist place.
Another way that pregnancy can occur without actual sex is when an object inserted into a woman's private part contains semen. Sex toys or even the finger with traces of a bodily fluid could make this happen.
If you are worried about getting pregnant because of the information detailed above, you might want to consider some known artificial birth control methods. These methods include the use of pills, condom, and other contraceptives available on the market.
However, if you are not into artificial methods, you may also try some tested and proven natural birth control methods. The best way is to abstain from any sexual activities until you are ready to get pregnant.
