Pre-cum causing pregnancy?

Patient

Q: Alright so i am really really concerned about the withdrawal method. i have a friend that has had sex without a condom and she didn't get pregnant because the man did not ejaculate in her. but i also know that there is something called "pre-cum" i did some research online but i haven't found a definite answer. i want to know if pre-cum can get a girl pregnant. i have found 3 websites that said that there is a possibility that a girl can get pregnant, but only if there is sperm in the penis still. they said you could also urinate to get the sperm out. will this prevent sperm being in the pre-cum?

thank you so much! i would love the feedback!
