Can you get pregnant from pre-cum?

I had unprotected sex but it was only for 1 minute, no foreplay and he obviously wasn't close to finishing. Is there any chance of pre cum and me being pregnant?

Welcome to e health forum.

Chances of pregnancy in healthy woman, after a single episode of unprotected sexual intercourse is only about 20-25 %, provided the woman has a healthy and regular menstrual cycles, the intercourse occurred during the fertile period of her menstrual cycle (day 12 - 16 of the menstrual cycle of 28 days).

Having sex in the days out of this fertile period (that is day 1 to 11 & 17 - 28 ) would be less likely to result in pregnancy, and it is considered to be the Safe period.

Based on the details given, considering that you have been sexually active without contraception, there would be chances of pregnancy. The risk of pregnancy would be very low if there was no ejaculation in the vagina.

If you were in your ovulatory phase when you had sex, and you think, the condom had slipped and you are at risk of pregnancy, then the only way it can be confirmed would be waiting for a few days after you miss your cycle and do a urine pregnancy test. If the test is positive, you might consult your doctor immediately who can provide necessary help and advice with regard to either termination of pregnancy or future steps to manage your pregnancy (if you intend to have the baby).

I hope this helps.
