Is there sperm in pre-cum or isn't there?

I've done some research and some studies say, no way, no sperm in precum, comes from a different place; the Cowper's gland and that the only way some semen could be in it would be the man had ejaculated, not urinated in between, and then had sex again.

Some other articles said this is not true and there have been numerous of semen samples in which the guy had urinated even several times, and they found sperm in the pre-cum.

My dh and I are using the withdrawal method. We have 4 kids, two of them are my step. He doesn't want more children per say but he knows I do and it is up for discussion in the future. He has used the pull out method with an ex years ago, for about a year (he was much younger..like 20) and never got her pregnant. He is now 43 and using it with me. He seems to hae his timing perfect...with time to spare. lol. We have been using it for about 6 months and even when I've been ovualting. So, that being said, we have not gotten pregnant and I don't think we will. If we did, I would be happy....hopefully later than sooner though.

What's your take? Is it possible that because he is slightly older that his sperm sample/pre-cum might not have sperm in it?

From what I've read, pre-cum can only contain sperm if a previous ejaculation occurred within 24 hours previous ... and the restroom wasn't used, or used often to clear out the sperm.

I don't think anyone knows the answer. Couples use the withdrawal method all the time and pregnancy does occur but obviously not as much as if the withdrawal method wasn't used.

I teach a sex education program and all of our materials state that there CAN be sperm in pre-cum. Sperm can be present if the man ejaculated within the past 24 hours and hasn't used the restroom several times to clear everything out. It's best to protect yourself from the very begining of sex.

Men are considered fertile their whole lives after puberty so their age has very little factor unless there is an underlying health problem.

Because of such inconsistent reports, I would say the best overall statement might be that it's possible to have sperm in pre-cum, but your odds of pregnancy are significantly lower than if not withdrawing.

I am a nurse and all the literature we were given and the advice we are told to give out is that pre-cum does in fact have sperm in it.

I'm a registered nurse and we were taught in school that pre-cum can have small amount, but enough sperms to make you pregnant. That's why withdrawal method isn't safe and you might get preg because might have happened pre-cum long before he ejaculated outside.
