Are my chances of getting pregnant just as likely if he didn't climax inside me? Could the "pre cum" get me pregnant? How likely is it?

Are my chances of getting pregnant just as likely if he didn't climax inside me? Could the "pre cum" get me pregnant? How likely is it?

See below: Chances of getting pregnant certainly are much greater if ejaculation occurred, especially if around your mid-cycle "fertile window" with ovulation. Also, sometimes men ejaculate semen/sperm without being aware of it. As for "pre-cum", in some men it has been shown to contain viable sperm and, even though in smaller concentrations than in a normal ejaculate, the potential for impregnation exists. ...Read more

I was on depo over a year ago what are my chances of getting pregnant now if the guy I was with didn't get off per say but says he can knock girls up easily?

Possible: If your last depo was a year ago it likely provides no protection at all. Any secretions from an erect penis have sperm and can get you pregnant whether he "gets off" or not. The pull out method is the same as no method. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant from precum, and what are the chances of getting pregnant from precum?

Can I get pregnant from precum, and what are the chances of getting pregnant from precum?

Here are some ...: The odd to conceive from per-cum is probably zero, but no one can guarantee to say it in 100% manner so to serve political correctness and professional self-protection since there is still few sperms in pre-cum. Nonetheless, do HPT in 1 wk after missing period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st was (-) and still in doubt. More, seek pro-evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

I started taking centrum for women. Will this increase my chances of getting pregnant? I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years.

NO: The vitamins will not increase your chances of pregnancy, but a good prenatal vitamin with Folic Acid will decrease the chances of your baby having a neural tube defect such as spina bifida. Keep having unprotected sex often mid cycle when you ovulate (always 14 days before your period) to increase your chances. If no results persist, see fertility dr. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied , what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied , what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

Ok: Success of a tubal reversal depends on three things: age of the patient and at 39 you are still ok, skill of the surgeon and length of tubal segments remaining. In my experience, the "bands" are the easiest to reverse and give you the best success rates. Ivf is also an option but generally is more expensive. It is a choice. Good luck. ...Read more

Pretty Good: Assuming no other problems, you should have about a 20-25% chance per month starting out and 85% in the first year. That is very high. If there is something if your or his history to suggest infertility that is a different story. ...Read more
