It's not a dumb: question,and yes,pregnancy is possible without ejaculation.A small amount of sperm comes out during intercource before ejaculation.The "pull out" method is not only a poor birth control system but it is also unsafe sex for STD's.Condoms work much better.
Dr. Heidi Fowler

Smart question: Both ejaculate and pre-ejaculate can contain sperm. Thus even prior to ejaculation, pregnancy is possible.

Yes: There are two basic types: urine and blood tests. Both measure a hormone called human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hcg). The blood test is the more accurate of the two.

In time: Your body has to clear the drug before your regular periods resume. Once this happens, you should be able to get pregnant unless there are some other issues preventing this from happening. So please see your gynecologist if you have been trying for a while without success.

Plus, if you have been trying to get pregnant for a year or more, your partner should be tested first if he has not fathered a child yet.
