Small but depends:: This depends on when this happened in relation to ovulation. Pre-ejaculate contains some sperm in about 40% of men. Since it has less volume/less sperm than regular ejaculation it's less likely to result in pregnancy but if this happened within 5 days of ovulation pregnancy is possible, up to 10% with normal ejaculation close to ovulation.
