Can You Get Pregnant From Pre-Cum? Top 4 Questions Revealed


Many people take the risk of having sex without protection because they believe that as long as they don’t cum, the woman won’t get pregnant. While this makes perfect sense, it’s not the case at all. Precum can cause a woman to get pregnant although the male didn’t fully ejaculate inside of her.

Pulling out may lower the risk of getting pregnant, but there will always be a chance of pregnancy due to precum. Let’s determine what precum is first before we dig deeper into the subject.can you get pregnant from pre-cum

What Is Precum?

Can you get pregnant from pre cum? The short answer is yes. Precum occurs when a male is aroused and before a person has an orgasm. Now, this white sticky fluid isn’t as thick as regular cum and won’t have the same potency.

In fact, precum doesn’t contain any sperm – at all. But, it can still get you pregnant. The issue is that this precum flows through the same opening that cum does. So, leftover sperm is picked up in the urethra, will travel with the pre cum and can cause pregnancy.

Scientists still don’t know the exact reason for pre-ejaculate, but they believe that it helps reduce the acidity in the vagina. Ultimately, by reducing the acidity levels, the sperm would survive longer inside of the vagina as it travels. Acid will kill the sperm, so pre cum aims to lessen this acidity to promote fertilization.

Can precum get you pregnant? Absolutely, but the chances are much lower than regular cum.

Studies found that out of a sampling of 27 men, only 41% of them had sperm in their precum. The amount of sperm present was very low, but that doesn’t indicate that pregnancy can’t occur. There is simply a lower chance for pregnancy.

If you’re practicing the pull out method, you’ll want to ensure that cum does not come in contact with the vagina at all. Many couples believe that as long as cum is on the outside of the body, the woman won’t get pregnant. However, this is only partially correct. Cum located near the vagina can travel inside of the vagina with even just a drip of cum.

So, you want to ensure that you do not ejaculate on the outside of the vagina or in the immediate vicinity. Even a minute amount of ejaculate contains enough sperm for a woman to get pregnant. Instead, you want to wear a condom or ensure that the woman is on birth control to prevent any unexpected pregnancies from occurring.

4 FAQs about Get Pregnant From Pre-Cum

Question 1: Can I Get an STD from Precum?

Precum has been associated with a “safe way” to ensure that STDs are not transferred.This is misinformation that every couple should be aware of. Studies have demonstrated that HIV is present in the majority of precum samples.

This demonstrates that precum can carry an STD.A major issue exists with precum because it often flows through the urethra and escapes out of the tip of the penis unnoticed. Unlike ejaculation, men are not able to feel precum and won’t know when precum is starting to come out of the body.

Question 2: What Are The Chances of Getting Pregnant from Precum?

Pre-ejaculate occurs before ejaculation. When a man reaches this point, there will be two times in which a woman can become pregnant:


  1. High Risk: A high of pregnancy exists if a man ejaculates fully during intercourse. This would occur after precum.
  2. Low Risk: Precum without full ejaculation presents a low risk of pregnancy.

There is a very low amount of sperm in precum fluid. This amount is much lower than what is present inside of a man’s cum, but there is still a risk of pregnancy occurring.

A good way to visualize this is to know how much sperm is found within normal cum. In normal ejaculation, there are approximately 100 million sperm in just one milliliter of fluid. This sperm then gets lessened because only 10 million sperm will get past cervical mucus in the woman’s vagina.

The uterine tract will also filter an additional 10% of sperm, leaving just 1 million sperm left. Ultimately, only 100,000 sperm that will exist long enough to enter the fallopian tubes. This all occurs when there is 100 million sperm. Precum only contains 3 million sperm on average (when present).

The chances of pregnancy are extremely low, but they do exist.

Question 3: What Methods Are Effective to Avoid Pregnancy?

Avoiding pregnancy requires diligence and some other form of contraceptive aside from the famous pull out method. There are plenty of forms of contraceptives on the market, but the most common are:

  • Condoms: A very highly effective way to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Condoms are worn over the penis and trap semen before it’s allowed to enter into the vagina. There is a 0.02 chance of becoming pregnancy when a condom is worn.
  • Female Condom: While not as common, the female condom can be purchased over-the-counter and has proven to be 95% effective at protecting against pregnancy. More expensive, a female condom is more durable and can be inserted into the vagina up to 8 hours before intercourse.
  • Birth Control: Birth control can be highly effective, but it depends on the woman. The percentage of protection that birth control provides is 91% – 99%. The 91% protection is a little low for most people and will provide a 9% chance of pregnancy. Ultimately, 1 out of 12 people on birth control can become pregnant based off of these statistics.

A mix of contraceptives is recommended to boost the risk of successful pregnancy avoidance. Typically, a condom and birth control are used in conjunction with one another to ensure the utmost in protection against getting pregnant. The pullout method can be used at this time to further reduce the risk of getting pregnant.

Contraceptive implants are becoming more popular and require surgery to be implanted in the body. These implants are very effective, yet they come with side effects that can be life threatening and will be very costly.

Male sterilization provides full protection against pregnancy. A woman can get her tubes tied, which would reduce the risk of pregnancy with a very high accuracy rate. While 99.9% effective, there have been cases wherein a woman with her tubes tied did get pregnant, but this is not the norm.

Question 4: Can Dry Humping Precum Get You Pregnant?

Can you get pregnant from pre cum when dry humping? There is always a possibility, but the chances are so small that it is very unlikely. Since precum contains such little sperm, if any, there is already a small chance of getting pregnant.

Since dry humping occurs outside of the body, it would take a drop of precum to drip into the vagina and pass through the cervical mucus all the way into the fallopian tubes for pregnancy to occur.

Can it happen? Hypothetically, it can happen, but the chances are extremely low. In fact, the chances are so low that it would be nearly impossible for pregnancy to occur with dry humping.

Precum does contain sperm in most samples thanks to the cut in the urethra. If you’re trying to avoid pregnancy, make sure you do not allow precum to enter into the vagina.


  1. “Condoms: A very highly effective way to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Condoms are worn over the penis and trap semen before it’s allowed to enter into the vagina. There is a 0.02 chance of becoming pregnancy when a condom is worn.”

    Please research this properly. Condoms are great for STIs, but nowhere near that effective at preventing pregnancy.

  2. 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?

    • There’s very little and low chances of you being pregnant by pre ejaculation, I’ve had unprotected sex with my boyfriend for over a year, and I haven’t gotten pregnant from precum yet. So the odds must be very small

      • I thought the same thing! Me and my boyfriend had sex for 10 months, which he never even got off, but I got pregnant from precum.. but it took a whole 10 months for it to happen

  3. So, if I had sex with two different people, one only leaving precum, and the other fully ejaculating. Would the person who fully ejaculated be more likely to make a woman pregnant?

  4. I was on the pill before my first time, but stoped drinking it a day before I had sex. My boyfriend pulled out, but I’m scared that I’m pregnant now because we didn’t use protection. What is the chances that I might be pregnant?

  5. So I had sex with my boyfriend and he had a condom on but he took it off because it was slipping off and he pulled out right way but I cant get pregnant from the pre cum that was on the condom and on to his penis ?

  6. Hello,

  7. Wtf? How can you get pregnant if the precym does not have a sperm at all? It is very clear that fertilization needs a sperm. Zzz.

  8. Brah, I touched my dick head while it was wet…. and my girl did too. I’m pretty sure it was dried by the time I was fingering her…. what are the chances that she’s pregnant?

  9. So… I touched my wet dickhead but I don’t remember if I washed my hand.. by the time I fingered my girl it was dry. She also touched my wet dickhead and kinda touched her vagina… What are the chances she’s pregnant?

  10. we had unprotected sex with my bf and I was so sure that he ejaculated outside my vagina. He pulled it off of me when he was about to ejaculate. Can I still get pregnant through precum?

  11. So im trying to find something out for a friend. Which i didnt know how to answer her because i wasnt SURE. My friend started her period July 14th or 17th. A guy slid his penis in half way on the 20th. He didnt cum inside her. She had sex on the 24th and he did cum inside of her also multiple more times after that. The pregnancy test came back positive 8/12. What are the chances of her getting pregnant by the first time? Why did the test come back positive so early?

  12. I am on antibiotics and birth control and had unprotected sex, no ejeculation and it was for roughly 30 seconds (I know time doesn’t matter) what are my chances ? Boobs hurt

  13. So last night I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. The first time he pulled out and came the second time it was longer and pulled out but didn’t ejaculate. I’m scared that I might be pregnant from pre cum and my period starts next week! What are the chances that I am pregnant?

  14. My girlfriend is still a virgin and We decided to have sex. My penis is on the opening of her vagina and just pretend that im fucking her but we havent undergo intercourse because she said it hurts she likes the feeling of my penis touching her vaginal wall. Is it possible that she will get pregnant through precum? By the way we did it 5days after the end of her period. Thanks.

    • If she’s taking the pill you have nothing to worry about, if you never came before doing that then definitely do not worry. The chances are extremely slim, near zero but highly unlikely

  15. Had sex with boyfriend, using the pullout method, have never gotten pregnant(been doing it for more than a year with him), since I’m not on BC we usually do it once a day, we had a fuck it lets do it twice moment, he came, wiped it off, went to the bathroom fully once then forced it out two more times, even washed his entire dick with soap then we went at it again, we started regretting it a few hours later. I’m currently a broke college student, I don’t have health insurance, and I know I fucked up I knew the risk, I don’t need to hear the ‘oh well you should of gotten some sort of protection’. I’m just here to see if anyone has gone through the same situation.

    For anyone wondering if the pullout method works.
    The guy has to be in complete control and know when he’s close, if you’re sexually inexperienced DO NOT try the pullout method, it might be working for me and my boyfriend also because of how fertile we are. We’ve never gone to the doctor(Which I know is really stupid and I highly recommend to go check yourself out if you’re having unprotected sex). I’m irregular and have extremely bad periods since I can remember but I’m assuming I may not be that fertile because of it. Do not be stupid and just use a condom and get on birth control.

  16. Hi can a girl be pregnant when its there first time and they used protection and after a minute the guy didn’t ejaculated he pulled out then remove the condom and the girl start bj and hj because the guy didn’t cum yet during the intercourse then a mins the guy cum but on the gurls mouth the girl didn’t swallow she just suck again the dick of a guy then after that the guy wipe it all with his shirt and they are finished can the girl be pregnant?

    • Was your girlfriend Christian, if I can ask?
      I’m interested because, as I understand, Christian girls in particular don’t want their men’s cum in them while dating.
      They’ll let their men fuck them, but ask them to pull-out “just in time” before cumming.
      It seems “easier on the conscience” to not have the finality of a man’s spermy cum in them before marriage. By not letting him cum in her, the ultimate “sealing” of their love, it’s seen as not so “sinful.”

      Yes, it is sexy as hell to visualize a Christian girl giving her pussy to a man in that way.

      It’s also great to fantasize about the guy not pulling-out….
      She feels his penis spasming, so she knows what’s happening.
      Unfortunately, there’s nothing NOTHING she can do to stop his spermy cum from filling her “innocent” Christian pussy.

  17. hi i had sex with my gf but i didnt cum inside her. we did it for only 30 seconds or so cuz she said it hurts and also the night before that i fapped but peed a couple of times before sex…. im scared… what are the chances of her getting pregnant?

  18. So I was dry humping with my girlfriend with our underpants on, of course I had a little pre-cum in my underwear but we kept dryhumping, what are the chances of my Pre-Cum travelling through my underwear and then through her underwear and then all the way into her vagina?

    And also if I had Pre-Cum on my fingers and didn’t wash it off I just dried it well with a tissue and then touched her vagina, would she become preganant.

    Please help I’m scared

  19. I had protected sex on 15th of September. But after 2 or 3 strokes the condom broke at the lower part (i.e. far away from the tip) and we stopped right then. There wasn’t much precum and he didn’t ejaculate at all. I took a plan B(contraceptive) pill for safety.
    In August I had my period on 8th and in September I had my period on 21th.
    I have had a delay of 14 days earlier 2 times this year (February and September) but it is 9th of November already, 20 days. And I still didn’t get my period and no PMS either.
    Please Help Me 🙁

  22. I and my girlfriend had a romance and I ended up rubbing my penis on her vagina which she likes.

    Is there a chance that I’ll get pregnant?

  28. So me and my bf have had sex while I was on my period and the day after and maybe a week after that.
