Can you get pregnant from DRY semen being on finger and fingering yourself? While ovulating? Took test 2 weeks after and got a negative result.

In brief: Possible

All it takes is sperm to enter the vagina during ovulation for pregnancy to occur. Sperm can survive for 3-5 days in the body but dry sperm on a finger most likely would not survive very long.
