If you are sexually active, you may have asked yourself sometimes: Can I be pregnant by fluid before ejaculation? To answer this question, you first need to know what this fluid is.
Pre-ejaculating fluid or pre-ejaculatory fluid is observed during erection at the tip of the penis and is pure as crystal – although this phenomenon may not be the same for all males.
The purpose of this fluid is to help neutralize the uric acid environment, and also to provide sperm protection that travels through.
This juice does not contain semen, which means that the fluid itself can not leave you pregnant. However, if any sperm has ‘left behind’ in the urethra by any previous ejaculation.
So, the remaining sperm from the earlier ejaculation may come out with the pre-ejaculatory fluid and enter the female body.
This is the most likely case when unprotected vaginal sex can lead to pregnancy. Once the sperm is inserted into the vagina, it will fertilize the egg cell, even if the male has removed the penis from the vagina before ejaculating.
