Hello and thankyou for approaching DoctorSpring with your query.
I will need to understand your question better as it is a bit unclear. So please can you clarify if what I have understood is right.

Your cycle is 28 days as your periods have been on 19/01 and then 16/02. So accordingly you were supposed to ovulate on 01/03 or 02/03. Did you use the ovulation kit and mean that it was a bit positive on 01/03 but then went light?
Then your partner and you had sex without protection on 25/02, 28/02 and everyday since without protection.
On 26/02 protection was used but there may have been precum present.
If I have got your case right then your fertile period would begin around 24/02. You have had unprotected sex on 25/02 , 28/02 and hence the chances are high that you will get pregnant from the unprotected sex with your partner.

Regarding the protected sex using a condom on 26/02 and precum being present, it is highly unlikely or chances are nearly zero that you would have got pregnant from that episode. Precum itself does not contain sperm, however sometimes sperm left behind from the previous ejaculate may be present in the urethra of the male penis, and the precum will carry the sperm.
But it is highly unlikely to get pregnant from that small amount specially if the precum is minimal that entered the vagina. It is theoretically possible but highly unlikely.

I hope this has helped. You can reply as a follow up.

Ok. So basically me and my patner have been activly trying for a baby he ejaculated inside me on the 25/02 the incident which happend was on the 26/02 which my current patner is awre of. We have carried on trying he ejaculated inside two days later and everyday since. What if i ovulated earli? Because my patner ejaculated inside on the 25th but then there was precum by someone else on the 26th but then a two day gap is there any possibility it would not be my patners baby?

Hello and thankyou for your reply.
Even if you ovulated earlier you will get pregnant from the episodes of unprotected sex with your partner as you'll had sex on 25/02.
As I said earlier it is very unlikely or chances are close to zero that you will get pregnant from the episode on 26/02. Theoretically it is possible but very unlikely. Like I said precum by itself does not have sperm but can carry sperm that was left over from the previous ejaculation. But the sperm count is very minimal in precum, and since you'll did use a condom it is unlikely you will be pregnant from the 26th episode.
It is very unlikely that the baby will not be your partners.

I hope this has helped.

Patient replied :

Ok thank you very much you have been really helpful :)
