how much lubricating fluid induces pregnancy?

I had sex with my partner today.After 15 minutes , I was involved in sex for second time. I was using condom. I had just penetrated only around 2-3 cm only and the condom broke. It was not sperm,but appreciable amount of lubricating fluid spilled off. That lubricating fluid might have carried some sperms of my previous sex. So how much chance is there that she will be pregnant? She is on most fertile time(15 th day of period). I know that doing pregnancy test will make it conform,however I want to know:

1)what is the chance of pregnancy at such cases?
2)what is the chance of pregnancy if there was full penetration?
3)what is the chance of pregnancy if ejaculated outer surface of vagina?

And also, do the fluids found in the condom have tendency to kill sperms?

Recently i had protected sex with my gf.. Bt while changing the position the condom slipped out of my penis and i didnt notice it.. As soon as i tried to penetrate her i felt that the condom had slipped out.. Then i noticed that only my natural body lubricant was present at her vaginal hood.. I immediately told her to wash it off.. Is there any chance of her getting pregnant due to the body lubricant??

what about I had protected intercourse 1 day before and next day without any protection and just done it for 3 to 4 minutes and just lubricating fluid was ejaculated???

yes there could be . when a male ejaculates about 98 % of the sperm comes out of the penis . but 2 % is still in the urethra . if the man has not uinated atleaste once in between sex there is a good chance that two percent will be in the pre-ejaculation. Pre-ejaculation i made to clean all urine residue out of the penis, so when semen come threw the sperm will not die to toxins in urine. But back to your case, if you did not urinate then there was some sperm in your pre-ejaculation. So it can but its a slim chance. very slim . but dont be one of those people that take the risk if your not ready for parent hood. all it takes is one strong swimmer oout of millions to get her pregnet. If the condom keeps breaking i would try birth control and a condom . (just in case) hope i helped a little -best of luck

Hi helpher,
I'm not sure what you are referring to as "lubricating fluid"? Let's talk about the different types of fluids that can be involved with sex:
1. Ejaculatory fluid ("semen") that comes from the penis and contains sperm.
2. Pre-ejaculatory fluid that come from the penis at the time it first becomes erect (just a few drops on the tip), and may/may not contain sperm
3. Vaginal secretions
4. Any type of lubricating gel, jelly, etc that comes from a container, used on a condom or by itself to create moisture

The only fluids found inside a condom would be semen that contains sperm. There are some condoms with spermicide (is that what you are referring to?) that would kill some of the sperm.

1, 2, 3. (My answer is same for all three scenarios): Chance of pregnancy when a condom breaks WITHOUT ejaculation is very slight. All other scenarios increase chances of pregnancy (regardless of full or half penetration) I'm still not sure what fluid would be "spilling out" of a condom except for semen. If semen is spilling out of the condom on her vagina, there is a higher chance of pregnancy.

It is important to use condoms correctly and consistently each and every time, and that means a NEW condom must be used for EACH different sex act. Are you saying that you ejaculated into the condom during the first time of intercourse, did not remove the condom, then the second time of intercourse (15 minutes later) you did not ejaculate, but that the fluid (ejaculate from previous sex) spilled out? If this is the case, yes...there is a chance of pregnancy as ejaculatory fluid contains sperm.

Let me know what questions you have, and it would help to clarify what terms you are referring to.

Dear Alison,
Thank you for your reply.I had ejaculated during my first sex,it was safe and afterwards, I washed my penis with water and I used new condom for the second time.For the second sex,I had not ejaculated but there was significant amount of pre-ejaculatory fluid that spilled off on her vagina when condom broke. I was worried could there be sperm on that pre-ejaculatory fluid and lead her to pregnancy ?

The only fluid that could "spill" would be ejaculatory fluid.

As I mentioned above, "pre-ejaculatory fluid" is only a few drops...literally a few drops...found on the tip of a man's penis when it becomes erect. Sometimes this fluid is not noticeable.

I'm not understanding how you are saying you did not ejaculate, but some ejaculatory fluid spilled on her vagina when the condom broke? Please read my previous answer again, as the fluids involved with sex that are abundant are either vaginal secretions or ejaculatory fluid. Again, the "pre-cum" has little to do with the actual sex act...it has to do with the penis becoming erect (and, as you know, a penis can become erect without having sex). Pre-cum has nothing to do with climaxing, orgasm, ejaculating, etc. There is not a lot of it to spill.

If there was fluid inside the condom, that can only be ejaculation. If the condom broke (or, slid off), then the semen inside the condom contains sperm, and could result in pregnancy.

Do you know when her last menstrual period was, and when is she expecting her next one?

the preejaculatory fluid is not slight its much more nd not just drops..nd it is also known as lubricating fluid..as i have read at othr places it does contain sperm of previous sexual act if u dint urinate prior to the sexual act nd aftr the first ejaculate but not enough nd very slight chances of getting ur partner pregnant..bt still theres a risk..
