Hello Siya,

Yes there still is the possibility of you falling pregnant if your boyfriend has unprotected sex with you, even if he does not ejaculate inside your vagina, a practice often called the withdrawal method, which is attempted as a method of contraception. The reason why it is ineffective as a means to prevent pregnancy is that a man produces pre-ejaculatory fluid during sexual intercourse which is responsible for preparing the urethra for the ejaculation and orgasm that occurs later, and there is sperm in this pre-ejaculatory fluid (often referred to as pre-cum).

When this pre-cum enters the vagina the chances of a pregnancy are real.
