So, getting pregnant with precum percentage is considerably low but proper precautions need to be taken from time to time. Still it is recommended that couples need to use ovulation calculator for safety purpose.

    If you had an unprotected sexual intercourse with your partner and want to find out- can you get pregnant from precum, know that the possibilities are very less. As per a research,majority of precumas almost dead or low sperm. Very few males have live sperm in their semen during pre-ejaculation. However, some men may carry live sperms with the discharge during their precum and it can accidentally make its way to vaginal cavity. Most of the men do not notice their precum and do not have any control over it. Precum can happen from other sexual activities like kissing or oral sex. It does not necessarily have to happen through vaginal penetration. For you to knowcan precum get you pregnant find out the most possible ways and plan your pregnancy accordingly.

    What is Precum?

    Precum or pre-ejaculation is a fluid which is released by men when they are highly excited and ready to ejaculate while having sexual intercourse. This fluid cleans the tube carrying semen and urine out of penis, called urethra and makes the passage clear for sperm to move outside freely.

    Precum fluid reduces the alkaline nature of the urethra and this makes the sperm flow easily through the tip as well as vaginal cavity of the female partner. Precum can happen even without penetration or vaginal intercourse. It can take place even if the male partner is aroused through other sexual activities like oral sex, grinding, masturbations or kissing.

    Does Precum carry Sperm?

    In most possible cases, precum fluid does not carry and sperm along with it. It is a fluid, which makes the passage clear for the sperm to move out easily. However, some men may carry live sperms inside the urethra during their precum, especially if he has ejaculated very recent. Eventually, Precum fluid can take the left over sperm from the last ejaculation and can pass it out through the penis. But this does not clarifies-can you get pregnant from precum. Precum can carry sperm if the male partner has not urinated for about an hour after the ejaculation and gets a precum again. Small amount of sperm can live on penis after ejaculation if the male partner does not urinate for a long time.

    Can you get pregnant with precum

     Apart from this, carrying a sperm in precum broadly depends upon the functioning of the male body. A laboratory check can tell whether the male body has the tendency to carry a sperm during his precum or not. So get it tested if you want to be clear with - Can precum get you pregnant?

    Can you get pregnant with Precum?

    There are very less possibilities to your query -can you get pregnant from precum. Technically it is possible but have very low chances. Precum often happens without penetration. With no penetration, it's a NO as well to your mind throbbing question - Can precum get you pregnant. However, Precum can carry sperms if the male partner has ejaculated very recent and can get you pregnant if the semen comes in contact with the vaginal cavity anyway. If you have not done vaginal intercourse and thinking- can you get pregnant from precum, then relax. Precum can get you pregnant only when the semen gets into your vaginal cavity and if it is carrying any sperm. Can precum get you pregnant- cancels it if you have covered your reproductive parts i.e. clothed well? It is unlikely to happen that semen can pass through thick layers of clothes and gets into your vaginal cavity.
