Yes.: Ejaculating inside the vagina during ovulation means she could get pregnant. Sperm are motile (they swim), fluid moves in the vagina, etc.
Dr. Edward Sierra
Emergency Medicine 35 years experience
Yes: Sperm have tails and are very goal oriented !there is still a very good chance that several sperm will reach the egg and one will fertilize it!
Dr. Brad Snyder
Specializes in General Surgery
Always possible: Anytime there is sexual intercourse (male and female parts together) there is a possibility of pregnancy. Semen can be expelled before ejaculation. If your wife is fertile the chances are higher she will become pregnant, especially if only means of birth control is withdrawal.
