How many times can a guy precum?

Hi
Im quite worried because Im currently not on birth control (it makes my hairline recede) and Im on the 13th day of the menstrual cycle which is the most fertile period.
Anyway my bf and I didnt have sex. I gave him a handjob and he precumed. Then much much later, he inserted inside me for a while because he forgot I wasnt on birth control. So Im not sure when he inserted inside me if he had any precum and Im worried that if he did, I would get pregnant even if it was just for about a few seconds later when he removed. So if he precum earlier, could he precum again later? I wished I could recall but I only remembered it the first time.

Thanks.

i'm not super expert or anything in comparison to some posters here..! but i figured i'd reply anyway

yes, he could precum again later as far as i know, as it's lubrication from being aroused. it probably differs from guy to guy but he could continue to produce it (i know my guy has a LOT.

the chances of you getting pregnant from precum are very low. i think the only way it can contain sperm is if he hasn't urinated since the last time he's ejaculated, and even if he hadn't urinated, the amount of sperm would still be very, very low.

i apologize if i'm incorrect on anything!

Precum is not the same thing as ejaculate...and it sounds like he ejaculated when you gave him a hand job? Or was it clear fluid? Either way, there's no certain amount of "times" a guy can leak precum. I suppose it all depends on the guy, but I know my boyfriend leaks frequently when aroused, and more and more the closer to orgasm he is.

If you're concerned about getting pregnant, discuss your options with a healtcare provider, or pick up "plan b" at planned parenthood.

It was clear because he ejaculated much later. So it was pre cum.

I agree with others that pre-ejaculate fluid can be a fairly constant thing; it's a fluid designed to prepare the urethra for ejaculation, so there doesn't have to be a single incident. My partner also produces repeated spurts of pre-ejaculate during foreplay and intercourse.

As others said, the risk of pregnancy from pre-ejaculate is much lower than from semen. Pre-ejaculate itself does not normally contain sperm; for that reason, only about 6 in 100 women will become pregnant in a full year of using the withdrawal method perfectly (the typical use rate is much lower, at about 26 women per 100, owing to the difficulty of practicing the method perfectly).

However, the risk is not non-existent, as there can be sperm remaining in the urethra from a previous ejaculation that is pushed out with pre-ejaculate. If you are not comfortable with that risk, then perhaps seeking Plan B would be a good idea for you.

sorry but what's plan B?

The emergency contraception pill. It is a pill that can prevent pregnancy, and is most effective if used as soon as possible after the incident in question.

You can read about how it works and how to obtain it here.

"My partner also produces repeated spurts of pre-ejaculate during foreplay and intercourse"

Same here!

The risk might be low, but it's still there, and this sort of situation has caused plenty of pregnancies. I agree, get yourself some emergency contraception. Do you need advice for contraception for the future, hon? I don't know all the ins and outs of hormonal contraception and whether there may be a method out there that wouldn't cause problems (any chance it was Depo that made your hairline recede? That can cause hair loss), but first of all, there may be, it's worth asking about. Secondly, there's the option of copper IUDs, which don't involve any hormones at all and are wonderfully effective. Thirdly there's the Fertility Awareness Method, but that involves a period of abstinence each month, you both need to be happy with that and able to stick to it properly (which means not ending up in this situation again). And I'm not having a go at people who can't handle the abstinence, I wouldn't like it myself. Anyway, iud_divas and fam are good places to find out more.

Asd far as precum goes, as far as I know it's a natural reaction the body has to being aroused... so I wouldn't be surprised if there were some amount of it there.

How much of it a particular person produces, though, is another matter. People really vary. I've seen guys who produce so much of it I've wondered for a moment which fluid that was, and guys who hardly seem to make any.

If he didn't urinate between the last time he ejaculated and you two had sex, then there could be semen in his precum. It's not a big chance, but more so that you know you are ovulating.
I agree with the above comments, get Plan B ASAP and next time remember to let him know you're not on BC and/or are ovulating, so there is a big risk of pregnancy from unprotected sex.
