can u get pregnant by pre-cum cuz im hearing different stories
There’s a lot of misinformation floating around out there about pre-cum. Here are some facts:
- 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 itself doesn’t contain sperm. But some men’s reproductive systems leak small amounts of sperm into their pre-ejaculate.
That’s one of the reasons why the pull-out method — also known as withdrawal — can be ineffective at preventing pregnancy, even if the guy pulls out before he ejaculates.
So to answer your question, it is unlikely but still possible to get pregnant from pre-cum.
