looking for opinions on the chance of pregnancy based on the following:

precum (not ejaculate) on vulva (not inside vagina)
was using ky lube on vulva
2 days after blood from period stopped, regularily means vaginal dryness
rinsed off vulva with tap water immediately

other thoughts:

precum does or does not contain sperm? it makes sense to me that precum, coming from cowper's gland, has nothing to do with where sperm comes from (testes). as long as there isn't sperm residing inside the urethra from a previous ejaculation, no sperm should be present in precum.

does chlorine in tap water kill sperm? does water kill sperm? some say yes because water caused the sperm to contract and burst.

thanks for your input

Precum can contain sperm......sometimes just as much as the ejaculate itself.

Nah, if the man take a pee or two before, it's very unlikely.

I hope this could help: 5?dopt=Abstract

It was tested by Zukerman Z, Weiss DB, Orvieto R. (Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rabin Medical Center, Petah Tikva, Israel.)

It "does" contain sperm. Yes it does. I have asked a doctor that long ago when I was young. The doctor said yes to this question. I hope this helps you.
Good luck,

No pregnancy. I think that it precum contains very little if any sperm at all and the chance of 1 of a few instead of millions, swimming all the way up to the fallopian tube is very very unlikely.
