    The rate of failed withdrawal method has been quoted as anything from 5-30% when used correctly but the actual true amount is hard to find.
    There is a myth that if a man "has great control" then you wont fall pregnant while to a small degree good control does help its not exactly how it works.
    A man can not feel pre cum so if there is sperm present you have a chance of falling pregnant. Also orgasms vary in the same person and at times a man can not feel the very first bit, in order for withdrawal to have a higher percentage of success the man should pull out way before he is going to cum.
    There has also been suggestion that withdrawal can lead to some sexual health problems such as erectile dysfunction and possibly cancer although this is not scientifically proven at this stage.


    Bottom line is that withdrawal method is for those people who don't mind falling pregnant.
    Like with anything some people will have success using it and really it comes down to luck. If there is no sperm present at anytime during s.ex then you wont fall pregnant but its like playing a bit of a game.
    If you don't want a child use another method.

    I haven't. DH and I have used this method successfully for 5 years with no unplanned pregnancies. It took us 13 months to TTC our baby, so we think we are not the most fertile couple. I can't tolerate hormonal contraception and hubby says he will go get a vasc, but that hasn't happened yet

    To the PP who asked- yes withdrew every single time. No mistakes. But if I had fallen pg accidentally we would have been happy.

    There are no viable sperm in "precum"

    As long as you don't double/triple ect up on sex in a 24 hr period and he refrains from masturbation, AND pulls out BEFORE he ejaculates then you shouldn't have a problem.

    Used it for 10 yrs and no pregnancy resulted.

    Hmm, there's not really enough evidence to conclude one way or another that withdrawl (used perfectly) is/isn't effective. All the studies I'm aware of have been very small scale. Some have used poor methods, and the results have been all over the shop. All that seems to be certain at the moment is that IF pre ejaculate contains sperm, then the levels vary significantly between different men.

    That being the case, I would never recommend it as a form of contraception. If you're happy with an 'accident' then that's another story.

    We used it (and occasionally condoms) for about 7 years with no problems. We then thought we'd 'see what happened' and stopped using it (only on a couple of occasions, no attention whatsoever paid to my cycle) and ta-da, pregnant.

    We're using the same now (with a 6 month old), and will continue to do so until we're done having kids. Then we'll need to use ACTUAL contraception.

    I used it for a year or so never got pregnant then got UTD first go both times we tried. I wouldn't use it if I really didn't want a pregnancy though.

    I'm thinking of getting a mirena once I've had bub's because apparently I'm more fertile than I thought. (have PCOS and thyroid problems)
