Chances of Getting Pregnant from Precum

In order to get pregnant, you need a few things. You need a good, healthy egg released from the woman and some good sperm delivered from the man. You need a warm, healthy and hospitable environment to encourage the egg to not only become fertilized in the first place, but also to move along the fallopian tubes and make its way to your uterus where it will implant and hopefully stay for approximately eight and half to nine months when you will then develop a baby.

We all know how the reproductive system works but despite this, there are still many misconceptions flying around, just one of the being that you can’t get pregnant from pre-ejaculate, or precum as it is commonly called.

If you’d heard otherwise, the information you’re receiving is wrong. It IS possible for this to happen and the chances of getting pregnant from precum are probably higher than you may have first thought.

Chances of getting pregnant from precum

Although pre-ejaculate generally contains less in the way of active and mobile sperm than ejaculate itself, studies have shown that there is still quite a high sperm count in that precum. This means, if you are having unprotected sex around the time your egg is due to be released, there is still a chance that you could get pregnant.

The chances are greatly reduced than if the man was to ejaculate inside you but sperm can still live for up to seven days in a warm and hospitable environment meaning that within that precum, the sperm could still live in your vagina and cervix for seven days potentially causing unwanted pregnancy.

Most people aren’t aware of the precum ever being present, let along that sperm may be alive and mobile within it, making it harder to know whether or not you have actually be in contact with the body fluid, but when you consider that a man will generally start creating this natural lubrication when he starts to become erect, there is a chance that the fluid will have been there right from the beginning of your activities.

In conclusion 

Although it isn’t very common, there is still a chance that you could get pregnant if you come into contact with male pre-ejaculate. If you have had penetrative sex with your partner and your vagina or cervix has come into contact with his body fluids, there could be sperm present also.

The chances are increased further if you have already had sex with your partner, or your partner has masturbated earlier on that day. In cases such as this, there could still be sperm present in the vagina or penis and when the pre-ejaculate starts to flow, this could sweep the remaining sperm through.

Best of luck, James!

  4. I had sex with an ex July 22 which is when I was ovulating. He pulled out. But I had sex with someone earlier that same day and he ejaculated inside me. I then had sex with the same guy the day after and he ejaculated inside me that day as well. July 22 I was 33% chance of getting pregnant and July 23 I was 22% chance of getting pregnant. Should I be concerned about my ex’s precum on July 22?

  5. Hi, me and this guy recently had sex back to back using protection. The first time, he pulled out and then came. Then he peed whatever was remaining out and right before putting another condom on, he peed again. However when he was about to cum the second time, he wanted me to give him a blow job. So I took the condom off and did but he wasn’t as ready as he thought, so he stuck it back in without a condom for not even 30 seconds. He pulled out right before cumming. I’m concerned bcs I’m in my fertile window and this was on day 3 of it, today is my ovulation day. This was on Sunday, today’s Tuesday. Is there a high chance of me having an unwanted pregnancy?

Confirm the result of your test with a medical professional. Have a great day, Chance!

  7. I had sex with two people around the time I got pregnant. One pulled out. The other, my ex, pulled out and stuck it back in because he said he wasn’t finished. I don’t know who the father is but I’m leaning toward my ex…

    • It is possible that either person is responsible. It is possible for precum to cause pregnancy. If your ex ejaculated during intercourse, then it is more likely that it was him. It would be wise for you to speak with both men. Speak with a medical professional about a paternity test. Best of luck, Latricia!
