Okay, I have read the Flow Charts concerning pregnancy, but I need a little clarification on something... When "touching your vulva or someone else's," does that mean actually fingers being inserted into you, or could you become pregnant if you had cum on your hands and then wiped yourself after using the bathroom? That was just confusing me. :-) Thanks for your help.

The semen would have to come into direct contact with your vulva or your vagina. So, if you used toilet paper to wipe yourself, there's little chance of that happening. Still, washing your hands before/after sex is always a good idea.
