I understand that after an ejaculation, sperms can remain in urethra for a certain amount of time, and pre-cum at that period of time are likely to contain sperms.
How long can sperms survive "inside male's urethra" or related areas? If after that period of time, would the pre-cum be "pregnancy-safe"? I've also heard that urinating can completely wash away leftover sperms and makes the pre-cum sperms-free, is that true?
Withdrawal concerns are ultimately my question actually. I'm aware that does not prevent STI/STD, but both me and my partner are virgins so that would not be a problem right?
Thank you very much!

Withdrawl is not an effective method of birth control. That's all we can tell you. It doesn't matter whether you urinate or don't urinate before sex. Just wear a condom and/or help your girlfriend to find and pay for a method of birth control that she's comfortable with. That's the only way to ensure that she won't get pregnant. Period.
