This study was designed to establish whether motile spermatozoa are released with pre-ejaculatory fluid and whether this fluid therefore poses a risk for unintended pregnancy. Forty samples of pre-ejaculatory fluid were examined from 27 volunteer men. Samples were obtained by masturbation and by touching the end of the penis with a Petri dish prior to ejaculation. The volunteers produced on up to five separate occasions and sperms were found in either all or none of their pre-ejaculatory samples.

Pre-cum is a lubricant produced by a gland in the penis.

In this article, we discuss precum and the risk of getting pregnant from this preejaculate fluid.
