What are the chances of getting pregnant if a guy only pre-ejaculated (also known as pre-cum) inside you? He didnt even think about the fact that he couldve gotten pre-cum inside me. I dont think he even knew about pre-cum. I'm not sure if he pre-ejaculated inside me but he did pull out before he ejaculated. And, he only put about the head inside me and he didn't thrust much. Also, he wasnt even close to breaking my hymen. I also found out that I'm not ovulating by using an ovulation test strip that is 99% accurate. Please help, I'm 15 and a little curious but not too worried because the chance seems very low. We had sex June 12, period started June 1 & was over on June 10, my period will stop around the 7th day and come right back for a few days before ending, and I checked my cervix by feeling that it is tightly closed which is supposedly another sign of NOT ovulating. I had brown discharge after from my period recently ending & think it could've washed out pre-cum, if any. Help!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the tests and other signs (cervix position and condition) indicate no ovulation around the time of intercourse you can consider yourself safe. However, you are closer to your fertile days after finishing with periods. Since the pullout/withdrawal method of contraception is known to be associated with highest failures (pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and no man can be 100% sure that pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid did not leak out during vaginal penetration), chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely (especially if you were close to or during fertile days/around ovulation time at time of intercourse). If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Avoid unprotected sexual contact within 2-3 weeks of getting started on hormonal contraceptive (as most of the hormonal contraceptives start giving you effective protection after 2-3 weeks). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
