Can You Get Pregnant From Pre-cum? Evaluate Your Chances

So can you get pregnant from precum? The short answer is: Yes, you can get pregnant from precum. Though the chances are quite low.

Pre-cum (Pre-ejaculate or Cowper’s fluid) is the transparent, viscous fluid, coming out of penis at the moment of erection or sexual arousal. Almost like the semen, but contains quite a few spermatozoa (sperm cells, delivering the nucleus with the genetic information of the male to the ovum of the female). The concentration of the active sperm in the pre-ejaculate is variable and individual. Presumably, the pre-cum works like a lubricant and acid neutralizer. Not only the concentration of sperm in pre-cum is individual, but also the presence of pre-cum at all. Some men don’t produce this type of liquid at all.

Pregnancy is (lat. Graviditas) is a special state of the woman’s body, in which her reproductive organs are incubating and developing an embryo or fetus. Pregnancy is the result of a merger of female and male sex cells as a result of fertilization of the ovum by the sperm, which is an active carrier of the man cells.

The matter: pregnant from precum

safe sex: pregnant from precumYou can easily get pregnant from precum under the following conditions:

  • You have so-called “dangerous days” – ovulation
  • You are not using any other method of contraception, but the coitus interruptus (aka the pull out method or withdrawal)
  • Your partner has already ejaculated previously and this is your second or more intercourse per day.

In the case the above-written conditions coincide, the chances of getting a girl pregnant with pre-cum are quite high.

Before having unprotected sex with a partner you are not going to have children with in the nearest future, choose the best method of contraception for you. However, if the intercourse took place and you’re not sure, if that would lead to pregnancy – there’s a low risk. I personally know only two women, who got pregnant that way.

In order not to cram yourself with hormonal pills, exclude the most important risk factors. Make an ovulation test, check your period calendar, if you have one. If you don’t  – get yourself one.

pregnant from precum: ovulation test


Knowing the date of your ovulation may help you to predict the days of the higher risk of letting birth out of control. And only after that, if you are afraid that there was a risk of penetration of the active spermatozoids on your territory – study the emergency contraception means.

So why there’s a certain risk of pregnancy without the fact of the ejaculation?

header 1 A certain quantity of capable of fertilization sperm is released during your sexual intercourse with a natural lubricant together with penis erection. That’s why getting pregnant by the male secretions is, of course, possible, but the probability is low.

header 2 A certain percentage of the sperm can remain in the urethra after the previous ejaculation, and may present in secretions or on the penis.

The next time you have sex, they can easily fall into the vagina if the man has not observed certain hygiene rules after the previous coitus. The possibility to conceive is higher for the second and subsequent sexual acts that are not accompanied by shower before each of them.

header 3 Coitus interruptus can be more dangerous not only because of the risk to get pregnant from precum.

pregnant from precum: safe sexEach man experiences difficulty in this delicate matter: do not think that it’s so easy – to catch the right moment before the onset of ejaculation. Unfortunately, this also disturbs a man to relax completely and experience the full range of sexual pleasure. And even with an excellent ability to capture the right moment, there is a risk of pregnancy as the sperm can easily get into the vagina from the hands or even bed linen. We must not forget that sperm lives for about 3 to 7 days in a friendly environment, which is the vagina.

Unfortunately, due to the absence of the possibility to obtain a certain data on the way a woman actually got pregnant, it is hard to get any true statistics of precum pregnancies. We may rely only on the mentioned above facts to state that there’s a chance of getting pregnant that particular way. Many men are not even aware that they discharge precum during intercourse, moreover, they can’t control it.

Accepting the risks of pre-cum pregnancy

Preventing an unwanted pregnancy is far better, than aborting it for many reasons. There’s no chance of getting pregnant from precum while taking birth control pills (if taking them right) or combining the contraception methods with one another. But in case there’s no trust between partners or pregnancy is not an option for any of the partners and you consider a probable pregnancy as a risk – this feeling will definitely affect the quality of sex itself. It is better if you choose a partner, with whom you are not afraid to get pregnant of pre-cum or secure the intercourse with the additional means. One must also remember, that precum, just like semen itself can transport many sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, that “sticks” to semen. The research cases show, that some viruses (like hepatitis) can be contained in a spermatozoon itself, thus causing vertical transmission of the disease (directly to the cells of the fetus).

The easiest way to secure the contraception effect of coitus interruptus and avoid a pre-cum pregnancy, however, is to use a contraceptive gel, suppository or cream, which are plenty in the market and safe for your health.pregnant from precum Contragel

    Hello, Danielle! First of all, you should try to relax. Then, I recommend you to do a pregnancy test. It is the easiest and right way to determine whether you’re pregnant or not. If the result is positive, visit a doctor. He’ll do a blood test to confirm your state.
    What concerns your period…You say that it is not regular and now you’re on your period. I’d rather say, that you are not pregnant (but it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do a test). Sometimes it happens. Whether changes, stress, infection, diet, physical exercises could lead to some problems. In this case you also should consult a specialist. He may prescribe pills or drops to improve the flora of your body. And often it is enough.
    About your boyfriend and precum. No, you can’t get pregnant if you slowed it. But using a pull-out method can be quite risky, because some experts think that precum may contain sperm. However, large-scale studies on the subject haven’t been conducted. My advise: use condoms. He will be satisfied in any case and you protect yourself from unplanned pregnancy and infections that can lead to serious problems. If your boyfriend refuse it – he don’t deserve to be with you. Trust and be close only with a reliable (and tested) person.
    Take care of yourself! I hope you will be fine and healthy! You can handle with everything!

      Thank you so Victoria I will get a test and take it and I’m scared if he has something and I can catch it from him

          Danielle, of course risks to get infection when you don’t use condoms always exist. That is way you better sign up for an appointment with the gynecologist. So you may learn about your health and how to cope with the problems, if there is any.

          I’m sure no matter what your mother will understand and help you. Good luck!

    I didnt had sex with my boyfriend but he ejaculated on my navel… i am pretty scared that i might get pregnant, also i had my periods n it happenned on 5th day of my periods. Also he was fingering me after touching himself
    ..I dont know what to do??

    • 20

      Hi, Tisha! You can’t get pregnant by ejaculation on your navel. It is impossible. He needs to be into you. What concerns fingering… There is a very-very little chance, as I know, to get pregnant. And it is only possible if sperm remained in his fingers and he put them into your vagina. But I must repeat the risk is small.
      If you are so afraid – do a pregnancy test. And to be more informed I suggest you to read about all possible ways to get pregnant. Good luck!

        Hi victoria! I am 25 years old, no kids. I usually have 3 to 4 day periods. For the past couple months ive been having unprotected sex with my male friend (actually on and off for 4 years lol) the last times we had sex was nov. 5th (i was fertile) the 11 and 12th ( 3 times each boths nights) and the 20th ( which was the lasy day of a 3 day period that came 3 days early) we have not seen each other since due to him getting back with his ex. I recently was 2 days late on my period, i then started on the 15th of dec. For 2 days and then barely spotted for the next 5 days after. Ive been feeling nauseas to certain smells, when i dont eat for a period of time. Im veryvtired all the time. On edge. Constantly cramping like im constipated. I dont want to accept the symptoms but i very worried. Whats your intake?! You seem very smart! I plan on taking a test soon just dont want to test too early and miss something because i do drink quite often:/

    My period was from 1st August ended the 5th August .

    Who is the father ? Should I be worried

    • 23

      Hi, Sam! Your second partner, with whom you had sex, is the father. Make an appointment with a doctor and follow his advices! Don’t worry! Take care of yourself and your baby!

  12. 24

    I had sex with my partner on 25 oct. initially he didn’t use condom, but later on he put it on. I am not sure whether his precum entered into my vagina, but I feel it did. I am having some serious irregular period issues, like the last period I had was almost after a gap of 5-6 months. It was on 10 Sept. Since then, my period has already been delayed by 15 days and meanwhile I didn’t have any intercourse except on 25 Oct. So should I go for a contraceptive pill to avoid unwanted pregnancy. Out of my irregular period problem I am fearing to take a pill but definitely dont want a pregnancy now.
    Please reply asap, as it is more than 48 hrs since I had sex.

      Nalini, unfortunately, I can’t reply to you with all confidence. I don’t think that you may be pregnant, and, yes, a pregnancy test won’t show anything on such an early stage. Probably, you can secure yourself and use a pill. But be very cautious and pick up the pills that won’t harm you or affect your reproductive capacity. Consult with a doctor or at least with a pharmacist.

      Also, I recommend you to visit a gynecologist. Urgently! Because such gaps between your period are not normal. Don’t postpone it and take care of yourself!

    hello,please I am quite confused,i and my boyfriend had dry sex,and that week I was supposed to have my period because I was already feeling pains before then,we had the dry sex on the 4th of November and this is

    I had sex with a friend the week after my period had finished and have recently had sex again days before my period was due, silly mistake we did not have protection, I had recently re started my pill to skip my period because of my cramps not knowing that I would end up sleeping with him again, we did not use protection but he didn’t cum inside of me, still very silly and not thoughtful but I was just wondering my chances and should I now stop my pill to make sure my period will come without the stress of not knowing if it is late or not, thanks

    Me n my bf use pull out an I am few days late now n also i have paragard utd had it for abt 6 months now n been using pull out method as well what likely hood of me being pregnant

  17. 30

    I had sex with 2 guys, one on the 13th of Nov and the other on the 17th. Both did not ejaculate inside of me. My last period was on the 6th of Nov. I only found out last month (Dec) that I was pregnant. I have been freaking out as I am not sure for the baby daddy is. My cycle is usually a 24 days cycle although it has been a bit irregular of late (coming in quite early like 2 days early).
    Please which one of them could be my baby daddy?

    • 31

      Hi, Leslie!
      I can’t be completely sure who your baby’s daddy is. To me, it’s more likely the second guy (Nov 17), but if you want to know for sure I believe you’d better wait and then ask for a DNA test. If you know exactly when your ovulation comes it can be of some help.

    Hi, my bf and I had sex on Wednesday the 28th, and when I put the condom on him I accidentally put it on backwards but I did not unroll it. I quickly realized and flipped it over and unrolled it. We then continued, and he never came in me or anything we checked the condom for holes and it was clear. I’m only scared because of the pre come that may have gotten on the condom when it was on him backwards. My period was the 20th through the 26th(this all happened the 28th) thank you.

      Hello, Jaime!
      I don’t think you’re pregnant. Even if some of the precum got onto the condom it’s too early in your period. But you can use a test after a couple of weeks just to be sure. (:

    I’m a 42 year old mother of 3 girls. My last one is 2 years old and we decided not to have any more kids. My husband uses a condom whenever we have sex. But we do a lot of foreplay and he enters me without the condom. When it’s time to ejaculate then he wears it. My last period was on Nov 27th and now I’m 12 days late. I’ve never been late as my cycle is always regular. Could I be pregnant? I’m afraid to take the test. Will it show results this early? Would appreciate your replies. Thanks

    my boyfriend had precum on his fingers, he dried them and touched my vagina. Is it possible to get pregnant, if it is how big is the chance of getting pregnant?

    I’m on the pill I’ve been taking it for 2 years every day I take it an hour later I’m sick and I missed 2 pills and a week later i had sex but it was precum can I still get pregnant?

  22. 38

    Stop having sex. Stop drop and roll. If you want to feel good, go to a supervised party where you can roll around groaning, try dry humping, or buy a dildo and just experiment for it.

    My boyfriend and I just tried grinding nude for the first time. After the fact, I automatically thought I was pregnant. I’m expecting my period soon, it should come in a little less than a week, and im feeling the symptoms of my period, but in can’t get in my out of my head that somehow his precum managed to make its way into my vagina and got me pregnant. Is this possible?? Of course my panicking has led to to the conclusion that condoms and birth control are my best friend. I just can’t stop worrying about this one little situation. Thank you for the help!!

    Hello I need some help. On the 23rd of march my boyfriend and I had sex. We used a condom but in the middle of it apparently the condom split all the way down the middle. It had to be a maximum of five minutes of unprotection. He did not come, however I have been told it is possible to become pregnant with pre cum. I have researched multiple articles and keep getting different information. Some say yes pre cum contains sperm, some say it doesn’t. Last month I got my period on the 26th however in January I got my period the 29th. I’m fairly sure i was not ovulating the day we had sex. I’m reallyreally driving myself crazy about this because I am convinced I’m pregnant and I’m really scared. It’s now the 29th of march and I still haven’t gotten my period. I need some straight forward answers. Please help me.
