Can pre-ejaculatory fluid cause pregnancy if male has urinated

This answer was rated:

Can pre-ejaculatory fluid cause pregnancy if male has urinated between sexual encounters?
Dr. Lawrence :

Hello, and thank you for your question. I will be happy to assist you. Answers are for educational purposes only.

Dr. Lawrence :

I would not expect any residual sperm to remain from a prior ejaculation if you urinated in between ejaculations. So there should not be any sperm in the pre-ejaculate in this scenario.

Just spoke to a doctor from webmd and they said that pre-ejaculatory fluid can cause pregnancy. If the morning after pill is taken and no ejaculation occurs does this lower the risk at least? It seems that there is some debate in the medical community regarding the issue of pre-ejaculatory fluid? If I urinated many many times prior to ejaculation that there should not be any issue at all correct?

I disagree, but just understand, you will find it very hard to find anybody to tell you that you 100% cannot get pregnant. Nobody wants to be wrong and maybe a pregnancy occured from another episode on another night....too many variables. But taken for what it is, you urinated, you used plan pregnancy should result.

Does her not having periods since june have anything to do with a lowered risk as well?

Yes. It is likely that she has not been ovulating and if that continues then she can't get pregnant. You just don't know when that will change. You won't know it until she gets a period. Just check the pregnancy test by 14 days.
