Can I get a girl pregnant if I pull out before I ejaculate?

Yes, it’s possible.

Pre-cum (also known as pre-ejaculate) is a small amount of fluid that comes out of your penis when you’re turned on, but before you ejaculate (cum). Oozing pre-cum is involuntary — you can’t control when it comes out, and you might not be able to feel it happening.

Pre-cum doesn’t usually have any sperm in it, but it can; if there is and it gets into a vagina, it could possibly fertilize an egg and lead to pregnancy.

There’s no way to know when there is or isn’t sperm in pre-cum — that’s one reason why the withdrawal method (pulling out) isn’t the best at preventing pregnancy, even if they pull out before they ejaculate.

If you want to prevent pregnancy, put on a condom before your penis and vagina touch. Even better, use both condoms and another kind of birth control together. (Source: Planned Parenthood)
