  • any amount of pre-ejaculate can get you pregnant, sperm are very very small and there can be millions in just a couple tablespoons of semen.

  • Precum still has sperm in it just not a huge burst like the actual ejaculation. It wouldn't be unheard of to get PG a few days before your period but it would be unusual.

  • Yes to all of your questions and it only takes one sperm to get you pregnant.

  • all it takes is one little swimmer. I've heard there can be a million in all the pre cum that comes out during just one round... That's why the pull out method is ineffective since there's still spermatooza in the pre cum... Good Luck with whatever prompted this question! :)

  • It only takes one sperm to implant. And precum is said to be the most fertile of all the semen. I've read a lot of TTC things and all state that the precum has the 'best swimmers'

    Answer by Amelia512 at 8:52 PM on Aug. 22, 2010

  • I read recently that precum is a lubricant that carries with it anything that's still in there, including sperm from the last ejaculation. So yes, it's possible to get pregnant from pre-cum, though not likely. It's also possible to get pregnant a couple of days before your period, though also very unlikely. Sperm can live in the vagina for up to 6-7 days with fertile cervical mucus. Ovulation usually occurs 11-16 days before the start of your next period, which is when fertilization occurs. The only way to get pregnant a couple of days before your period is if your cycle is less than 3 weeks long and you ovulate just a few days after your period starts.

    The two of them together...not likely at all.

  • in addition to what Dragon stated above, it also takes about 7 -11 days for the fertilized egg to implant so if you have an extremely short Luteal Phase, the time after ovulation and before your period, the egg wont have time to implant and pregnancy is highly unlikely.
