can pregnancy occur from indirect contact with sperm?

InVitroFertilization: Sure. This is how In Vitro Fertilization works. The egg from the woman and the sperm from the man are combined to create a new baby embryo outside the woman. The embryo is then placed into the uterus of the woman, around the time of ovulation. If the embryo implants into the lining of the uterus, the pregnancy grows. As you see, the woman has had no direct contact with sperm in this scenario.
