Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Pregnancy occurs when sperm and ova unite by means of sexual intercourse or some artificial methods as IVF.
It is not possible to conceive by just masturbation and chances of conception by fingering are remote if sperms are present in the hand while doing it and travel in the vagina but that occurs rarely.
As sperms always need a medium like vaginal fluid to swim so pregnancy cannot occur by other methods.

Hope this helps!
