Common "Pre -ejaculatory Fluid" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Pre -ejaculatory Fluid

Pre-ejaculatory fluid is a clear fluid secreted by the Cowper's gland in males ejaculated from the penis during sexual intercourse. It helps in lubricating the penis and washing the acids in the urethra produced by urine to protect the sperm. Sometimes pre-ejaculation may contain sperms that were present from the previous ejaculation and may lead to pregnancy if all factors are favorable.
