My boy friend and I are going to try and have sex without a condom for a minute... I've been told it's called pre-ejaculation but what if there was no pre-cum involved. Am I still able to get pregnant?

What you're describing would be perfect use of withdrawal (he doesn't ejaculate inside you) and Yes, there is still a chance of you getting pregnant by doing this.

Check it out: Withdrawal

Pre-cum/pre-ejaculate usually will be present and while it USUALLY does not contain sperm, there is a chance it can:

Can I ask why you don't just use a condom? It would probably give you a lot more peace of mind and if you and your boyfriend have not been tested, this will protect you from STI's too [Smile]

My girl friend and i have practiced this when ever there isn't a condom within reach. its not the safest method because of pre-cum and the overwhelming urge for a guy to stay in when he does cum. But for ever time use I would really advise you use a condom. If my gf and i had done it like that every time I would have a kid by now.

Yes you may be able to get pregnant. From what I know pre-cum is the fluid from Cowper gland which serve to reduce the acidity in the urethra (sperm cannot stand acidity!) Normally there's no sperm inside it but in the case that the guy ejaculate before hand and never urinate before the next ejaculation, the pre-cum which precede the cum may flush out whatever that's left of the sperms in the urethra outside, thus the pregnancy risk...

Condom should be used for any direct genital contact =D hope this helps!

The thing is most guys don't know when their pre-cum leaks out... so it's impossible to withdraw before your pre-cum make its way out.

You can't do that... it wouldn't work.
You have to use a condom while he is inside you because any pre-ejaculation could get you pregnant.

I've done it when I was in a monogamous relationship, and he pulled out before ejaculation every time - but I wouldn't do it unless you're certain (or close to certain, as "certain" never really exists when it comes to STIs) neither of you have an STI, because while pre-cum rarely contains sperm, it can easily carry an STI.
So pregnancy risk is low (if done correctly!). But STI risk is definitely high.
