Can I get pregnant from pre-cum?

Photobucket

Someone asked us:

Q. If pre-cum gets on the opening of my vagina, is there a chance of me getting pregnant?

We get A LOT of questions about pre-cum.  Here’s the deal:

  • Pre-ejaculate — also known as pre-cum  — is a liquid that oozes out of the penis before ejaculation.
  • Oozing pre-cum is involuntary, meaning a guy can’t control when he secretes it.
  • Pre-cum usually doesn’t contain sperm. But some men’s reproductive systems leak small amounts of sperm into their pre-cum. There’s really no way for a guy to know if he’s one of the guys who have sperm in his pre-cum or not.

So it’s unlikely but still possible to get pregnant from pre-cum. The most likely way to become pregnant is through unprotected vaginal intercourse. If you’re worried about getting pregnant, check out our My Method tool to find the birth control that may be right for you.
