Yes a woman can if she is ovulating. Studies show that 90%of all sperm is in the precum and the actual ejaculation has 10% and the seminal fluid. So if all it take is one and the pre cum is 90% of 180 million sperm there is a very good chance of pregnancy.

A female reader, natasia United Kingdom +, writes (23 May 2009):

natasia agony auntI have read a lot about this fluid they are all taking about, and this is what I learnt:

If a man put his penis inside a woman and takes it out before he ejaculates, yes, she can become pregnant, because ... when the penis is getting ready to ejaculate, it secretes some pre-fluid. This fluid itself doesn't contain any sperm, BUT, it's purpose is to kind of get things ready for the sperm, and when it passes through the penis, it can pick up OLD sperm from a previous ejaculation. If these sperm are still alive (which they can easily be, if you only ejaculated fairly recently before this time), then they can get flushed out with the pre-fluid .. into the woman .. and to the egg.

This is what I learnt. So, actually, it does in effect mean that the pre-fluid can contain some sperm. And you only need one. So be careful.

A male reader, Sandman United States +, writes (23 May 2009):

Sandman agony auntWell, the answer is yes and no.

First let's talk about pre-ejaculatory fluid which is also known as "precum". This fluid comes from the Cowper's Gland and functions to lubricate the urethra in males and neutralize the acidity of the urethra for safe passage of sperm. Many people believe that sperm are present in precum but clinical research has shown that pre-ejaculatory (precum) does NOT contain sperm. However this does not mean there cannot be sperm present during sex without or before ejaculation occurs. There are three instances in which sperm may be present without the man's knowledge and CAN therefore cause pregnancy:

1. He pulls his penis out too late when using the "pull-out" method. Some men begin emitting semen moments before they start the rhythmic contractions of ejaculation. Therefore, he will have released some semen (and sperm) into the vagina before he pulled out for ejaculation. The sperm released can cause pregnancy.

2. There was sperm already present in the urethra before having sex. Some men masturbate before having sex with a woman because it helps them to have sex longer. If the man ejaculates at any point before sex, and does not clear his urethra of sperm by going to the bathroom (urinating), then there will be live sperm waiting around in the urethra. Then later when he is having sex, the pre-ejaculatory fluid (precum) will actually push the leftover semen (sperm) out of the urethra and into the vagina. The left over sperm can cause pregnancy.

3. There is a build up of semen and other fluids. Male fluids are constantly being produced by the body. For men who are regularly engaging in sex or masturbation, there isn't a noticeable buildup of fluids. However, build up occurs in men who engage in sex or masturbation rather infrequently, or engage in forplay, sex, or other sexual stimulating activities for a long time without ejaculation. This can lead to a phenomenon known as congestive prostatitis, or "blueballs". This buildup of seminal fluids comes out at various times, most of them when doing non sexual activities such as having a bowel movement or urinating. This happens because while urinating, the urinary bladder squeezes the prostate while emptying, pushing out any excess fluid that may be present. While have a bowel movement (going poo-poo), the stool passing by the prostate squeezes it and pushes out any excess fluid that may be present. So some boys/men will notice some semen in the toilet after doing one (or both) of these things. But in the case of getting woman pregnant, the man goes to the restroom to do one of those things and it only gets pushed out into the urethra - and not completely out. Then when he goes to have sex, it gets pushed out by the subsequent precum. This built up semen can cause pregnancy.

So yes, there are chances that a woman can get pregnant even if the man does not actually ejaculate. But no, precum, or pre-ejaculatory fluid does not contain sperm that would get her pregnant.

If you are concerned about becoming pregnant, I would advise a pregnancy test 10-14 days after your last unprotected sexual encounter.

Hope this helps

betty_black agony auntWhenever a mans penis has entered a womans vagina there is a risk of STD's and pregnancy. Regardless of whether you use the pull out method or not because men have pre-ejaculation spurts as well as the full thing!
