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.

  1. my GF and I were doing foreplay and in between, I inserted the tip of my penis inside her(just the tip)and I might have pre ejaculation…what are the chances she can still get pregnant. thank you.

    • It is possible that precum can cause pregnancy, though it is unlikely. It would be best for your partner to continue to monitor her experiences at this time for symptoms of pregnancy. If she experiences additional pregnancy symptoms, then she should take a pregnancy test five days after your normal period date. Best of luck, Sanjey!

  2. Me and my partner , during foreplay touch each other parts and I had precum at that time .
    We used protection during sex .
    Than what are the chances of preganancy
    We had sex yesterday .. Since it is too early to find .. But she is suffering from a lot pain in her vagina
    What to do.

    • If precum was placed near the vagina, then it is possible that she is pregnant, though unlikely. Precum has the potential to cause pregnancy during intercourse, though even then it rarely results in pregnancy. It is possible that she is pregnant due to the intercourse that you had yesterday. It would be beneficial for her to take a pregnancy test five days after your normal period date. She should confirm the result with a medical professional. Have a great day, Vivek!

  3. I and my gf had foreplay 2 months back. I am not sure if precum got stick to my fingers. I fingered her but not deep. She had her periods normally for 5 days last month. But she didn’t have her periods yet this month. She didn’t have any pregnancy symptoms and she feels some heat and cramps. But she didn’t have her periods yet. Could she be pregnant or why are her period late?

    • It is possible that she is having a late period due to influences in her life. It is possible that she is pregnant. It is possible, but unlikely, to become pregnant due to precum. It would be best for her to continue to monitor her symptoms at this time. If she experiences additional pregnancy symptoms, then she should take a pregnancy test five days after her normal period date. Confirm the result of the test with a medical professional. Have a great day, Shiva!

  4. Me and a friend had unprotected sex on 6/30 and exactly a week after, both times we didn’t use condom and used the pull out method. He only put the tip in and didn’t make me bleed or anything . Can I be pregnant ?

    • It is certainly possible to become pregnant due to precum. It is unlikely. Continue to monitor the experiences that you are having at this time. If you notice additional symptoms of pregnancy, then take a pregnancy test five days after your normal period date. Confirm the result of your test with a medical professional. Best of luck, Ashley!

  5. My fiancee and I had sec with a condom. We had been doing things before he put the condom on, so he already had p recum at that point. After he put it on we started having sex and within a few minutes the condom tore. I am wondering if sperm can still live inside a condom?

    • Sperm can live inside a condom. Come condoms have spermicide inside of them. This does not kill 100% of the sperm. It is unlikely, but possible, that you are pregnant. Continue to monitor the symptoms that you are having at this time. Take a pregnancy test five days after your normal period date if you experience pregnancy symptoms. Have a great day, Cassie!

  6. My boyfriend and me had sex. he didn’t penetrated inside me and ejaculated away from me. Are there any chances of being pregnant? He just touched my organ while having sex.

  7. Me and my boyfriend were dry humping naked while I was on my period. We stopped because I was scared that I could get pregnant from precum. His penis did not go inside me, just on top. My ovulation is due in 11 days and this happened yesterday (july 15th 2017) and I know it’s too early for a pregnancy test. As far as I know, he peed before we dry humped. I’m kinda scared that I could get pregnant because I’m only 15 and too young to have a child. What are the chances that I could get pregnant and should I be worried?

    • If the two of you dry humped, then the chances of you being pregnant is essentially zero. Because he did not ejaculate, the chance is as close to 0% as possible. It is almost certain that you are not pregnant. Reduce stress in your life at this time. Have a great day, Anon!

  8. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex 07/13. He used the pull out method, however there is still precum. Later that day I noticed my areolas get darker. I want to say it is too soon for pregnancy signs to show up but I can’t be sure. What are the chances I could be pregnant? Thanks

  11. So me and my girlfriend had sex around the 12-15 of June we used a condom and I pulled out well before I finished but now she is 4 days late and we are panicking because we are both 18 and don’t want a kid.

      • It is not likely that she is pregnant. It is certain possible, however. Because you used a condom, the chances that she is pregnant is very low. However, condoms are not 100% effective. It would be best for your partner to monitor her symptoms at this time. If she misses her period, then she should take a pregnancy test five days after her normal period date. She should confirm the result of her test with a medical professional. Best of luck, Jacob!

  12. Hey I had sex with a 38 woman. I wore a condom and she was on her period and I diden’t finish. I found out some of her blood was under the condom. So some of my stuff might of leaked out. That’s what I’m afraid of. When’s the earliest I could find out if I’m 200% safe? And should I be good?

    • It is unlikely that she is pregnant. If she was on her period, then she is at her least likely time to become pregnant. The blood can stain through the skin, but that means that it is potentially possible that semen can leak through. There is a chance that she is pregnant, though it is unlikely because precum is unlikely to cause pregnancy. The earliest that you could know would be in a month. However, it is highly unlikely, but possible. Best of luck, Bill!

  13. Hi. Me and my boyfriend had sex and he was wearing a condom. He had precum in it. There were no leaks or tears. But Im really paranoid about being pregnant. The chances of that are very unlikely right? I just need reassurance.

      • It is unlikely, but possible, to become pregnant due to precum. Because your partner was wearing a condom, the chance that you are pregnant is much lower. Continue to monitor your experiences at this time. Rest easy, as it is likely that you are not pregnant. Best of luck, Anne!

  14. we had sex 3 days after my period but did he did not ejeculated in my vagina he also peed after the firt time he cum. what is the possibility im pregnant

    • It is possible to become pregnant due to precum, though it is unlikely. Continue to monitor your experiences for symptoms of pregnancy.

  15. It’s been 2 weeks since me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex. I used the pull-out method and I’m sure I didn’t ejaculate inside her. She took emergency contraception within 24 hrs as we’re afraid that the precum might get her pregnant. We were really stress and recently she started feeling nauseas in the morning… Is she pregnant? Is it possible to get that symptom this early?

    • If she properly used emergency contraception and you did not ejaculate, then the chances of her becoming pregnant are unlikely. Precum has a chance to cause pregnancy, though is it unlikely. Not all emergency contraceptives work 100% of the time. The chances that she is pregnant are minimal, though still possible. Best of luck, Mark!

  16. My girlfriend and i had unprotected sex several times. I can confidently say that i didnt ejaculate inside of her. Her last period which was 5 days late due to stress was on may 13. We had the sex after that. She was expecting her period on the 13 of june. However due to school she was under a lot more stress on the week of her expected period. It has been 2 weeks since her expected period. Is she pregnant.

    • It is possible to become pregnant due to precum, though it is unlikely. It would be beneficial for her to monitor her experiences at this time. She should take a pregnancy test five days after her normal period date. It would be wise to confirm the result of the test with a medical professional. You should support her and help her reduce stress in her life at this time. Best of luck, John!
