no

when you have sex with a woman you release sperm inside of her
as long as the sperm is able to fertilize the egg (no condomds,birthcontrol etc) then she could get pregnant

you can still get pregnant if he masturbates first
no she can still get pregnant even with birth control. Birth control only protects a female from getting pregnant by percentage,for example the birth control pill has protection of "around" 99% while say the depoprovera shot,neuva ring,patch has a lower percentage and so on
