Very unlikely: Usually many million sperm entering the vagina at the time of or just before ovulation (egg release) are required to make pregnancy likely.

Well it won't cause: You to become pregnant. Fingers would need to be clean with well clipped nails and no overly forceful movement. You are still at risk for sexually transmitted diseases with this behavior.

Yes: Sperm are built for swimming. Anytime sperm get in the vagina, there is a chance of pregnancy. On rare occasion, even sperm on the outside of the vagina could swim to the egg and fertilize it. If you don't want a child or a difficult decision, act responsibly.

Self insemination: Yes. But not easily. If your male partner does not participate in this there are some legal issues this activity would raise given that the male would be the father of your child if you do get pregnant. I would advise careful consideration and communication with your partner if you are trying to conceive without them knowing it.

Unlikely: There is a very, very tiny chance of successful pregnancy with this method. Yes, it is possible, but much less likely than through sex or insemination
