    Not a reliable form of contraception at all considering there's sperm in "pre-cum".

    I myself haven't fallen pregnant this way but a lot of people do.

    It's not actually safe as 'pre-cum' can contain sperm.

    A gf of mine now has four children as they were using the withdrawal method and she was charting her cycle.

    When is your AF due?

    No, but plenty of women have!

    I do not consider it a form of contraception, it's too risky.

    I have 5 kids- 3 of them were 'withdrawal' method kids, and that was with me charting.

    If you want to be safe- use a barrier method

    No I haven't as I wouldn't ever use that as a form of contraception, but I know many babies are conceived that way.

    I don't understand how girls can think this is safe?

    We use withdrawal method and generally avoid DTD from days 10 -14. Might eat my words but so far so good. We only have one DD so we are happy enough to accept whatever risk there is of getting it wrong.
