If I had unprotected sex but only for 5 seconds could I get pregnant?

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.

A barrier method, like a condom, can reduce the risk of pregnancy and STIs up to 98%! It is a good idea to use a barrier method when engaging in sexual activities.

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%!
