Patient

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible for your partner to become pregnant from pre-ejaculatory fluid, since it does contain a small amount of spermatozoa. However, based on the description of your particular encounter, the likelihood of her becoming pregnant is very low. We recommend that your girlfriend await her monthly menstrual period and if she is late, she can proceed and see a doctor to conduct a pregnancy test.
