This is the clear liquid that comes out before ejaculation. It's also called Cowper's fluid, and its purpose is to flush the urethra so left-over urine won't kill the sperm. Note that Cowper's fluid may contain some live sperm, and that most guys don't feel it flowing.

There tends to be much less viable sperm in preejaculate than in actual ejaculate at the end of sex. However, it often contains enough sperm cells to cause pregnancy.

Could you get pregnant if your husband do not discharge in you?

It only takes one sperm to fertilize one egg (even though it often requires tens of millions to create the environment suitable for that one to swim to the egg) That one sperm (or hundreds along with it) could have crept out in the preejaculate serum and thus a male orgasm is not required.

Can a woman get pregnant during her period using withdrawal method?

Yes she can. It's not very common for women to become pregnant while on their period but it is possible. The withdrawal method is not very reliable if you are not trying to get pregnant.

Is it dangerous to leave your penis in a womans vagina?

Not if you are not afraid of pregnancy. The only reason someone would want to pull out early would be if they were counting on that as birth control, though that is not a very effective strategy. Preejaculate can often get a woman pregnant, even if the guy doesn't reach orgasm during sex. Now, if you are wearing a condom and/or she is on the pill, then it is no more dangerous to leave it in as it would be to pull out early.

Were does sperm go inside a man?

First off sperm cells are stored in the epididemis, where they mature. Once it's time to ejaculate, sperm cells go from this storage sack in the back end of the testes and begin to travel through the vas deferens. First gland that the cells come across is the seminal vesicle. This gland provides the little soldiers with the carbohydrates, proteins, and other energy sources they'll need when traveling through the vagina. The second gland they'll encounter is the prostate gland. This one equips the cells with an acid combating secretion that'll ensure that all the sperm cells aren't killed off when they reach they're target. Once the cells have passed through the prostate, they switch over to the urethra, which is a direct duct to the outside of the penis. But before these puppies make it out they get a little help from the bulbourethral gland whose secretion (known as preejaculate) provides the urethra with the proper lubrication. Now all things have been taken care of, time for the boys to go out and play...
