Can You Get Pregnant from Pre-Cum? During Ovulation and More
Male pre-ejaculate has a lot of the same properties as actual, sperm-containing ejaculate, It has a lot of the same properties as real ejaculate. So if you use withdrawal or natural family planning as your main form of birth control, and even if you don't, Dr. Deb Laino — a sex therapist in Delaware — shed some light on the overture to actual ejaculate, or pre-ejaculate. Though there's not as much sperm in pre-ejaculate, Laino said there's still some, and so technically, it can cause a pregnancy. But what makes this particularly risky is that men don't have as much control over pre-ejaculate as they do when they ejaculate with orgasm. It can happen without warning, which means it can happen before you've had a chance to put on a condom, if that's your primary method of birth control. The risks may be lower, but they're still there.
It makes perfect sense for many women to believe that they cannot get pregnant as long as their partner does not cum. It is for this reason that you may have taken the risk of having sex without protection. Pre-cum, also known as pre-ejaculate occurs when a man is sexually aroused before he has an orgasm. It is always secreted whenever a man is ready for sex to clear the path for the sperm to travel through when ejaculation occurs. It is alkaline in composition so that it can neutralize any remnants of urine in the urethra since urine is acidic.
Precum or pre-ejaculation is a colorless fluid that comes out from the penis during sexual intercourse. The pre-ejaculatory fluid is secreted before ejaculation and it acts as a lubricant making it easy for sperm to pass through the urethra. Aside from that, this fluid neutralizes the acidity of the urine in the urethra that can harm the sperm.
