Pre-ejaculate (pre-cM)

Hello EmpowHer,
If a man already urinated before he had sex, is there any sperms or semen in their pre-ejaculate at all? Can it be enough to make a pregnancy? Because on Internet, some says it does contain sperms (or semen), some others say if the man already urinate from his last ejaculation, then there will be no sperms (or semen) in their pre-cM. I don't know which one to rely on.
Thank you very much.

Dear, lauren.lola,

Thank you for your post.

Pre-ejaculate fluid itself does not contain sperm. If a man had a prior yet recent ejaculation, sperm might remain in his urethra - the tube through which urine and semen pass. Once he urinated, any remaining sperm would be flushed out.
