Precum also known as pre-ejaculate is the whitish fluid that comes out from the tip of the penis during sexual arousal but before full ejaculation. This fluid looks very similar to semen. Are sperm living inside of precum? The answer is yes, sometimes. That said, there are other reasons to be cautious about using the withdrawal method to avoid pregnancy. While very few women may conceive with precum, up to one in five women will unintentionally get pregnant using the withdrawal method. The glands are slightly less than a half-inch in diameter and they produce an alkaline mucus.

Or from your boyfriend that told you about the horrors of precumming on the subway. Either way you know it exists, but what even is it? The longer answer is a little more complicated. Stimulating the P-spot can lead to incredible orgasms for penis-owners. A selected few penis-owners may experience excessive amounts of precum, which can be somewhat cumbersome and inconvenient. If you are experiencing high levels of precum, especially in situations outside of the bedroom, consult a doctor. There are medications that your doctor can prescribe to reduce pre-ejaculation fluid, while still receiving the natural benefits of pH balancing within the urethra. After ejaculation, peeing is recommended by sex educators to clear any remaining sperm left in the urethra. When engaging in penetrative penis-vagina sex, the probability of pre-ejaculation fluid transmitting STIs is much higher than the chances of getting you pregnant.
Male discharge is any substance other than urine that comes from the urethra a narrow tube in the penis and flows out the tip of the penis. These glands sit alongside the urethra. Pre-ejaculate is secreted from the tip of the penis during sexual arousal.
When not using a condom or other barrier method during sex, liquid from the penis can enter the vagina without either party knowing. Even with the best form of protection, it is always possible that sexual intercourse can result in an unintended pregnancy. In this article, we discuss precum and the risk of getting pregnant from this preejaculate fluid. Before ejaculating, the penis releases fluid that people many call precum, or preejaculate. Precum comes out involuntarily before ejaculation. The fluid is partially for lubrication. Since sperm can stay in the urethra, urinating before having sex may reduce the chance that semen will mix with the precum.
