is it likely to get pregnant from pre-ejaculate when not ovulating? would there be a possibility of pregnancy?

Playing the odds.: The concentration of sperm in pre-ejaculate is much lower than in ejaculate. If the sexual intercourse was distant from ovulation that makes pregnancy less likely. The bottom line is that even if there is a small chance of pregnancy, if you don't want to become pregnant, don't play games with the odds. Use protection consistently if you aren't ready for pregnancy.
