Re: Not Quite sure......

Well I've gotten pregnant TWICE by good old coitus interruptus (pulling out), so believe me, it's not a reliable method. (Some people never learn, but I did get 2 great kids out of it) So yes, you can get pregnant from precum, and a man can ejaculate a little before he actually thinks he's doing it. Please be careful, it can happen!

Yep, you can get pregnant from pre-***. The sperm in the pre-*** want to reach the egg too and are just as strong as those in ejaculate. The pull-out method isn't all that effective, as you can see from tictac's experience!

Actually, most medical souces say that this is not true. In fact a lot of men have pre-*** with no semen at all. The risk comes with poor control of the withdrawal method, and the presence of semen from previous ejaculations.

That said, the planned parenthood website says that the failure rate of this method is 27% with typical use.

The point is, even if there is no semen in his pre-ejaculatory fluid, if there was a previous ejaculation, there will be semen there, and if he's not waaaaay early with is withdrawal, you're just asking for trouble. It is a TERRIBLE method of birth control with one of the highest failure rates.

So yeah, if I were you, wonderfulmomma, I'd be a little worried...

Re: Not Quite sure......

From what I have read about pre-*** (cause I wanted to know what the chance of pregancy as well), just like thisby said, there really isn't actual semen in precum. Semen and precum come from different parts of the male body But, also like Thisby said if that male has recently ejaculated than there could be left over semen mixed in it. I've also read though that once the man pees the sperm die. Then precum goes back to it's normal state (without semen). But the pullout method is another story because a sperm might be left behind after you pull out and increase the risk of pregnancy.
