Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Pregnancy can occur only when a sperm fuses with an ova or egg. For this the sperms need to be ejaculated inside the vagina or there should be entry of sperms inside the vagina which travel through the cervix and uterus to reach the egg in the fallopian tube.

In the scenario that you have described, if there is an immediate transfer of semen in the vagina after ejaculation, then chances of pregnancy are there.

You should do a urine for pregnancy test or get a serum HCG test done to confirm the diagnosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
