    I have used withdrawal method for almost 10 years now with my hubby.
    Dec 2011 was the only time it didn't work for us and I ended up pregnant.
    I think you have to still be mindful of ovulation week and be extra careful!
    I remember saying to hubby before DTD that I was extra slippery tonight so no stuff ups cause I'm fertile mertile! His response was a laugh "I'm pro by now hunny!"

    One of my friends always used this method, and of course, she fell pregnant. Wasn't really a surprise to me, but she was shocked by it; I was personally surprised it hasn't happened earlier.

    I thought they taught that this was not a form of contraception at school, during those health classes? I remember it being drilled into me many times never to do this.

    Is the withdrawal method an effective form of contraception??

    Lol. I just slapped my forehead.

    No!! Use it if you're happy to accept a baby. If you don't want a baby... Use an actual contraceptive.

    I don't consider the Withdrawal method an actual form of contraception, if you truly don't want a baby.

    If you're in the "we do want another baby but not in a rush to have one right now" category, then it may be effective, but otherwise, it's just simply not a real contraceptive at all.

    Anyway, what's the news OP? Have you taken a test? I'm keen to know if your symptoms turned out to be a bubba in the making!

    Agree. We will probably use this method until DS is 6 months and then we will use the whatever happens method until he is 1 when we would start charting etc.

    We want a small gap so if we got UTD straight away we wouldn't be fussed (I'm ebf so it's more unlikely but I think I may be getting AF back so that goes out the window!!). If we didn't want another child soon I would absolutely not trust it. (DH wants me to get pregnant NOW and DS is 7 weeks old! This is me going with the flow!)

    Well I have to say its the only form of contraception that has worked for us so far we used it for 3 years of a VERY active sex life and never had an accident until one time he came inside me and bam I was pregnant lol.

    Withdrawal method is a way of torturing hubby's.

    It's like saying To a chocoholic: "Stand outside the chocolate store while I go in. While Im inside checking out all the goodies, make sure you take in the yummy smells wafting in from the factory. And look at this brochure of chocolate treats. If you're lucky when I get out I will give you a 5 cent sized sample of crappy chocolate that I bought from the $2 shop six years ago."

    Oh dear! No, it is definitely not reliable. I know quite a few people who have ended up pregnant with this 'method'.

    Apart from babies, please also be aware that STD's can be transmitted simply by contact or bodily fluids, so whether or not he withdraws won't make a difference with regard to STDs.

    Wishing you the best outcome

    Haha!!!
    Easier way to put it is. You may chew the chocolate but you cannot swallow it
