    I know a few 'withdrawal method' babies! We used it for 1 year and it was ok BUT it took 4 years to conceive and DD1 and 7 months to conceive DD2 so we aren't exactly the most fertile couple.

    I found it effective when adhered to ... but when he decided to not worry about it - well every single time turned positive.

    I think that does show that in our case, it was effective - when actually used.

    We use withdrawal method and have had 1 surprise! But when we found out we were pregnant with our surprise hubby said he remembers the moment it happened that month if you know what I mean lol.

    Otherwise we have been using withdrawal method successfully for 6 or more years.

    Maybe alot of the success has to do with the man and how good at judging he is....

    We used withdrawal for about 6 years fully prepared to accept any accidents. We usually avoided the fertile times.

    It took us 9 months of TTC to get pregnant, 4 of which I charted using BBT.

    I think it's okay for people who would welcome an unplanned pregnancy, but would not advise using withdrawal or temping as a contraceptive in situations where you absolutely want to avoid pregnancy at all costs.

    DH and I have been using the withdrawal method for 10 yrs with no accidents. It is not reliable though as PPs have said.

    It probably works better for some people than others. Or we r just lucky. Haha.

    Definitely not something I would consider a form of contraception.

    I personally have never used it, but like many PPs I know all too many couples who have found themselves UTD using this method.

    I was using very successfully for years but I only used it because I didnt really care if an accident happened. I woulda been happy to have the baby. I wouldnt reccommend it if having a baby is a bad thing for you right now.

    In my experience the withdrawal method is a very reliable method...of conception. Contraception not so good. Unfortunately sneaky preejaculate contains sperm.
