Pregnancy is possible whenever sperm comes into contact with the vagina. Since there was unprotected sex, there is a risk of pregnancy. Even if ejaculation did not occur, there is still the risk of pre-ejaculate.
Pre-ejaculate is a clear, sticky fluid released by the penis between the beginning of arousal and ejaculation. 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. Most people don’t know when pre-ejaculate is happening.
It would also be a good idea to use a form of birth control when engaging in sexual activities. Some forms can reduce the risk of pregnancy up to 99%!
