If someone is having unprotected sex, there is a risk of pregnancy. Even if ejaculation did not occur, pregnancy is still a risk because of something called pre-cum. Pre-cum—officially called pre-ejaculate—is a clear, sticky fluid released by the penis between the beginning of arousal and ejaculation. Some people release a small amount of pre-ejaculate; others may release quite a bit, and most people may not know when pre- ejaculate is happening
Although pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm when it is produced, it can pick up leftover sperm in the urethra. This means that pre-ejaculate can contain sperm when it leaves the body, creating a risk for pregnancy. Pre-ejaculate can also transmit STIs.
Remember though, condoms can help reduce the risk of pregnancy (and STIs) by up to 98% when used correctly.
would also be a good idea to consider starting a form of birth control. most methods can be up to 99% effective
