You sure can!: It only takes one egg and one sperm getting together, and that does not always require intercourse. If you're "messing around" and do this without the man's knowledge, please reconsider. Unanticipated pregnancy is a bad way to "get a man.".

YES, of course: Agree with all the other docs. If you do not want to get pregnant, donot do this. There is always a chance when sperm gets into the vagina around ovulation of getting pregnant..

Timing of ovulation.: Sperm in the vagina can make you pregnant. It must be placed there at the time of ovulation, Which is roughly 14 days before your menses begins. You can use ovulation tests performed on your urine to help guide the timing. There are better ways of introducing sperm into the vagina if you're intending to become pregnant. If you do not want to become pregnant, Do not put sperm in your vagina.

Possible: anything is possible but there would need to be multiple events happening at the same time. One that the sperm could travel to the cerrvix 2 there is enough sperm and it is alive 3 it is the time of month she is ovulating Therefore the chances are very slim she would be pregnant
