[Question #4420] Pregnancy

30 months ago
I rubbed my penis on the outside of my girlfriends vagina for a while no penetration. I then put on a comdom and we had Intercourse.   My question is even though I never ejaculated is there any way Pre-Cum could of  been pushed in by the condom that was on the outside of her vagina resulting in pregnancy.

Welcome to the forum and thank you for your confidence in our services. However, the forum is limited to STD and HIV issues; we are not experts in pregnancy, contraception, etc.

My understanding is that once in a while pre-ejaculate fluid (pre-cum) can contain sufficient sperm to result in pregnancy, but this is very rare -- and it mostly occurs with intercourse with withdrawal before ejaculation. I doubt there is any risk from exposure to small amounts of pre-ejaculate fluid outside the vagina. Without ejaculation into the vagina, the chance of conception is very low. This sounds to me like a zero risk event in regard to pregnancy. But as I said, I'm not an expert in this area. (But I can say for sure this was no risk in regard to STDs.)
