Precum is the clear liquid that comes out of the tip of the male sexual organ before releasing sperms. It is also known as the pre-sperms fluid. It is also considered as a lubricant during sexual intercourse. It does not contain any semen but it could have picked up sperm during a previous intercourse and as such, it is possible to get pregnant by precum.
It’s imperative to note that the sperm count in the precum is very low. It is calculated to be in the region of one thousand sperms compared to the millions of sperms released per millimeter cubic. The fluid is used to clean out the inside of the urethra and making it less acidic for the sperm to survive and pass through the urethra during sexual intercourse.
In most cases, pregnancy occurs if and when the woman is ovulating. If at the time of sexual contact there is a sperm inside the urethra tract, the chances of a woman getting pregnant are increased. The sperm in the precum could easily get in contact with the egg released during ovulation, fertilize it and get implanted in the uterus.
Opinions are varied whether or not you can get pregnant from precum considering that there are various factors in place for a pregnancy to occur. If the man urinates immediately after sexual intercourse, the urethra tract is cleaned. Therefore, no sperm is left in the urethra tract. But if the man ejaculates a second time without having urinated in between the sexual contacts, some sperm left over could find its way into the cervix and if the conditions are favorable, pregnancy can occur.
Some people could argue that it is not possible to get pregnant by precum due to the fact that for a pregnancy to occur a number of things need to be in place. The egg has to be ready to be fertilized and there is also the factor that a man releases like a million sperms and not all of them survive to fertilize the egg.
It takes only one sperm to fertilize an egg. Therefore, the chances of getting pregnant by precum is greatly reduced if all the factors are considered. Getting pregnant by precum is not impossible but it is considered highly unlikely. Not one person can claim to be able to calculate the odds of one getting pregnant without a cum. The debate is still on as to whether one can get pregnant from precum or not.
