User avatar Hello,
It is possible to have sperm present in the pre-cum as well as after ejaculation. This is not a reliable method of birth control. You may not get pregnant since it would depend on the timing of ovulation and just the luck of the draw, but you should seek a better method of contraception. The healthiest babies are those which come when you are ready to be a parent in all ways. Do you need suggestions for alternative methods? Of course you can see your health care provider or family planning clinic for these services.

Best wishes.

User avatar Have you considered an IUD? It's certainly an easy option and if you get the Mirena you may get either very light or no periods - kind of a bonus. Some women have a couple of months of cramping and heavier bleeding but once the body adjusts it is usually much lighter. I would talk to your care provider about the choices based on your history.

Good luck.
