Risk of unintended pregnancy

Three or four tiny drops of my pre-ejaculate was seeped from my penis on the skin of my girlfriend`s hand. After this (approx. 2-4 minutes ) she touched her clitoris and labia. She is a virgin. Is there a risk of unintended pregnancy? If , there is a risk , please explain me the extent of the risk.

At this very moment I know that she was on the 9th day of her menstrual cycle. The usual duration of her menstrual cycle is 33-40 days. Is it obligatory that ovulation happens on 14th day of her menstrual cycle or it occurs later?

Hello Anonymous,

As I said, ovulation generally occurs around the day 14 of the next menstrual cycle. The time can vary from month to month, and from one woman to the next, but happens mid-cycle.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us with your concern about the risk of pregnancy with this scenario and an explanation.

From what you have shared, there is most likely no risk.

It is debatable if pre-ejaculate contains sperm.

Pre-ejaculate, also known as pre-ejaculatory fluid, preseminal fluid, or Cowper's fluid, is the clear, colorless, viscous fluid that is emitted from the urethra of the penis during sexual arousal. It is similar in composition to semen but has some significant chemical differences. The presence of sperm in the fluid is variable.

After ejaculation, whether by masturbation or sex with a partner, sperm may be left over in the urethra, the tube that semen travels through. Urinating between ejaculations flushes the urethra of these leftover sperm and clears the way for pre-ejaculate. If sperm remain in the urethra from a previous ejaculation, they may be released with pre-ejaculate.

Introducing pre-ejaculate fluid into her vagina with her fingers carries a much lower risk than if there had been penetration of your penis with ejaculation.

There would have been a slight risk if this occurred five days before or on the actual day of ovulation. In a 28 to 30 day menstrual cycle, ovulation generally happens about 14 days after the last day of her recent period.

With this information, I hope you can come to your own conclusion of the level of risk.
