is it possible to get pregnant while on your period with pre-cum?

No, not unless...: A woman cannot get pregnant during the first few days of her normal regular periods. However, if she has some spotting and is not on her period, but mistakenly thinks she is on her period, it is possible that she is fertile during the spotting. A urine pregnancy test can be done about 3 weeks after sex, if worried. (Also, it's very unlikely to get pregnant with "pre-cum".)
Dr. Heidi Fowler

Highly unlikely: unless the female had an extremely short menstrual cycle. Most studies have shown low levels of sperm or no sperm in pre-ejaculate with sperm not being motile (however, don't know how promptly samples were examined). One small study published in 2011 showed that there are some individuals with a high motile sperm count in pre-ejaculate. See: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3564677/

Everything as usual: Make sure you are doing more for your oral hygiene, and stay up on your dental work so that you do not have avoidable dental concerns along the way. A good cleaning is important to get you started. Congrats with the new baby.

Most likely not: The act by itself can put her at risk of being pregnant but since the time of the contact was not in the ovulatory cycle ( safe period ) and she saw her next period couple of days later . So she is not pregnant

Asking wrong quest: Yes. Pre-cum has sperm in it. You should be asking when does your partner ovulate in her cycle, the days leading up to ovulation are the days pregnancy can occurs.

A male asked:

Is it possible to get pregnant with pre-cum the day before a girls' period? Is the chance more likely?

Not likely: Pregnancy occurs most commonly if sperm is introduced in to the female system (precum has sperm) in a 5-7 day time period around the time of ovulation. If it is the day before her period you are out of that range and pregnancy is unlikely. Use condoms if you want to avoid pregnancy and infections.
