Hi doctor,

I had sexual intercourse with my wife after 21 days of her period. I urinated before sex. I took the penis out after three to four minutes only and then we did other things except for penetration. I did not ejaculate in or near the vagina. What are the chances of pregnancy? Are there any chances of pregnancy from pre-cum? I ejaculated after 25 to 30 minutes of penetration.

Please help.

Thank you.

  1. Pregnancy can only happen if precum (pre-ejaculate) or if semen is released inside the vagina.
  2. She can carry out a urine pregnancy test (UPT) from the first day of a missed period. If she does not know when her next period is due, then do the test at least 10 days after unprotected sex.
  3. Wait for menstruation to happen.
  4. If menstruation does not happen and it has been more than 10 days, then go for a urine pregnancy test. If it comes negative, then go for a beta hCG test (human chorionic gonadotropin), and then visit a gynecologist for a detailed evaluation.

Thank you.
