    Default Withdrawal method- getting pregnant?

    We use the withdrawal method and have done for the last 2 yrs (have tried the pill but it doesn't agree with me) but it wouldn't worry us if I was to fall pregnant so works fine for us.

    Good to hear a positive story. Do u monitor ur ovulation time and just be more careful then? I figure that might be a good way to go. I don't really mind if we do fall preggo..although hubby not so much..lol

    Used it for 8 years with exH with no problem, fell pregnant first month of trying. Not so lucky with my DD's father, did it three times on the weekend I ovulated and fell pregnant with DD!

    Would NOT recommend it!!!

    I've used this for 10 years and not one pregnancy I think success is reflected on how 'efficient' your partner is at withdrawing. Sorry if tmi haha.

    We used it for the majority of 7 or 8 years with no problems, but we were particularly cautious. Withdrawl was always well before ejaculation.

    Personally though, I wouldn't use it if I wasn't willing to risk a pregnancy.

    Have used this method for 8 yrs, no accidents and fell pregnant first go and second go when obviously NOT using this method (super regular and 14 day ov every month with pains etc so we knew when to steer clear)

    Will be using a more perm method after this baby though.

    I would not risk it, it's only another month but my husband and I fall pregnant easily and I definitely don't want more kids

    I agree the BigRedV. .the method in general kinda puts a damper on everything..but better than condoms..hate those..
