    Can you get pregnant with Precum? Know about Precum and Pregnancy

    • 4.8   (5 Votes)

    Precum pregnancy rate is much less than most of the couples assume them. If you are thinking that can a precum cause pregnancy, then you can be relaxed that there are low chances of precum after ejaculation pregnancy. Still it is recommended to take the right precautions to prevent pregnancy.

    Precum is a term used for the fluid, generally like water like substance, coming out of the penis before ejaculation. Most of the people use withdrawal (pulling out before ejaculation) as a birth control method. Although, withdrawal is one of the birth control tricks which is effective, too. But before trying such a method, you must also check- does precum contain sperms? This can be helpful to those who want to avoid pregnancy but do not use proper contraceptive for birth control. You must know the nature of sperms and under which conditions it may carry sperms. It can help you avoid unplanned pregnancy and will keep you safe from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) as well. (1) 

    What is Precum?

    Many of us want to know what is a precum? Precum is used as a term for the transparent fluid that comes out through penis before ejaculation or during foreplay. Precum is produced in Cowper’s gland and it clears the path for semen to come out freely during ejaculation. (2)

    Precum have sperm

    Precum is alkaline in nature and it reduces the acidity of the vaginal cavity. This clears the passage for sperm to move freely inside the vagina as sperm cannot survive in high acidic condition. Precum takes place with other sexual activities like sexual arousal through masturbating, kissing, dry-humping or oral sex.

    Does Precum Have Sperm?

    In most cases, precum does not carry sperm. It is fluid that discharges from the penis and makes the passage clear for sperm. The precum may carry sperms if you have ejaculated a few minutes before and you are aroused again. Precum may carry sperms if you have ejaculated very recently and have not urinated for next 10-20 minutes or longer before next ejaculation. As per a recent study, it is found that if you had sperm in your pre-cum then you are more likely to carry sperms in your precum each time. If you have a healthy body and a healthy sperm count, you will most probably have sperm on your precum. Does Precum have sperm can be answered with the simplest fact that if you have ejaculated a few minutes before and you have not urinated, you will carry some amount of sperm in your precum? (3)

    Can Precum Get You Pregnant without penetration?

    It is quite obvious for you to think that if precum can make you pregnant. The answer to your question is Yes. You can get pregnant with precum though the chances for you to get pregnant with precum are very low. Notwithstanding, Precum may carry sperms if the male accomplice has ejaculated a few moments before and can get you pregnant if the semen interacts with the vaginal cavity anyway. (4)

    You can get pregnant with precum

     On the off chance that you have not done vaginal intercourse and thinking-would you be able to get pregnant from precum? Precum can get you pregnant just when the semen gets into your vaginal cavity and on the off chance that it is conveying any sperm. Can precum get you pregnant-crosses out itself in the event that you have secured your regenerative parts i.e. dressed well covering your reproductive organs well with fabrics? Semen cannot pass through thick layers of garments and does not get into your vaginal hole. (5)

    Precum can carry sperm and you must be very careful while using withdrawal as a birth control method. If the semen makes its way through vaginal cavity anyhow, there are chances that you can get pregnant. Be careful and attentive, especially if you want to avoid pregnancy.

    Hope, this article has helped you resolve your queries on precum. Follow Ela Woman blog to get regular updates on fertility health and treatment.

    For the ones who are using pull out method to control pregnancy, you must ensure that cum does not interact with the vagina by any stretch of the imagination. Many couples trust that as long as cum is outwardly of the body, the lady won't get pregnant. It may be the case, but it's a half truth. Cum…
