Brief Answer:
Pre ejacuate can also cause pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I am here to help you.

Pre ejacuate also contains a few sperms and even one is enough to cause pregnancy; but the good thing is that you had unprotected sex on the 7th day of your cycle which is remote from the time of ovulation. So it greatly reduces the risk of pregnancy though doesn't completely eliminate it.

Don't worry as stress also delays periods. With the above medicine after stopping the drug after 5 days within a week you will get your periods. But to be doubly sure do a urine pregnancy test which in case you are pregnant will come positive by now.

All the best... take care.

Brief Answer:
Chances of pregnancy are low

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Ovulation occurs 14 days before your next expected period. Since you have a 30-31 day cycle in your case from day 14 to day 17. Though the chances of pregnancy are low but can't be completely ruled out.

I would recommend to take regestrone for 5 consecutive days instead of 3 and within a week of stopping the medicine you will get your periods. This should be started after a negative urine pregnancy test. In case you still don't get your periods and urine pregnancy test is negative then we need further tests like thyroid profile and prolactin etc.

Is it possible for a sperm to travel inside though the male sex part is not fully inserted depth and ejaculated? In my case the sperm is not ejaculated at all but as you said pre ejacualtion can contain sperms but that is also happened only XXXXXXX of 1 inch so is it possible for sperm to travel deep inside. So can you tell how much is percentage of getting pregnant in my case? I'm afraid

Brief Answer:
Chances exist though minimal

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

In such a case as you have mentioned chances of pregnancy exist though minimal.

I would suggest you to do a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

Take care all the best.
