My fiance and i do that everytime, he doesn’t like condoms and i’m not on birth control. We do have a 14 month old son, but he was planned. We decided we wanted a baby, so he didn’t pull out and i got pregnant, but even now we still do just the pull out method and we’ve had no problems with it.

We used the pull out method for over a year with no issues. This is our first month not pulling out, so we’ll see how long it takes me to get pregnant (though dh insists that I am pregnant based on muscle testing lol).

My SOs SIL (so I guess you would say my FSIL) got pregnant this way. However, his brother told us that she was testing all the time and trying but she blames him for not pulling out. Just a tad bit confusing as to who is telling the truth and who isn’t.

We pull and prayed for 2 years about, with nothing. First month of not pulling and I got pregnant.

We’ve used it basically our entire relationship, and I’ve never gotten pregnant.  The key  is to make sure your guy is disciplined enough to pull out in time.

I use that method more times than not, because I am not BC, etc.  However, I have also learned my body – and coincidentally know when I am ovulating, so there is a span of about a week where we use condoms, no question 🙂

Pulling out isn’t a method in my opinion. It’s just hoping you don’t have an accident. If you don’t want to get pregnant you really should be using some sort of birth control.

pulling out is not a method of contraception. 

I know plenty of people who have gotten pregnant thinking it was.

I’ve used that method for most of my adult life, because I’ve had such terrible experiences with BC.  I never had a pregnancy scare and never got pregnany until we tried!

New research shows that there is absolutely 0 sperms in pre-emissions.  None.  It is an old wive’s tale that there is.  So, that means a person can only get pregnant if the guy does not pull out on time.  I could see this being an issue for younger guys with…less control, I guess.  But my guy always knew exactly when it was happening and pulled out well in advance.

I am 32, by the way.  And just now pregnant.  So we’re talking probably 12 years off and on of using this method with nary an “accident”.

I think the reason this method isn’t considered more effective is because I truly believe some guys either don’t have the control, don’t know their bodies well enough, or simply lie to finish and then pretend they don’t know what happened later.

But that’s just my two cents.  I still wouldn’t recommend my own daughters or my students use the method though.  =) =)  Double standard!

I have a friend who just delivered a healthy baby girl using this method.

We did this for four years before trying.  Got preggo first month trying. Never a problem but we knew that if it happened we would be ok with it.  That said, I really agree with what BookGirrl said. Probably not the best idea for younger guys but my Darling Husband never had any problem pulling out with plenty of time.

We use the “pull out” method as well. We have been for two years and no pregnancy so far.


To those who don’t think it’s a suitable form of birth controll….Did you that statistically condoms are 85% effective and the withdrawal method is 96% effective with perfect use and 73% effective with typical use, according to Contraceptive Technology.

I don’t think the percentages are that far off from each other to think that condoms are more effective than pulling out.

Also on the topic of Birth Control. I think that BC is the devil and messes with your entire hormonal system. I wouldn’t doubt if it gives us cervical cancer too. It scares the hell out of me.

@MadTownGirl:  My friend did. Thankfully she wanted to start trying for a baby in a few months anyway, but she got pregnant the first month of doing that.

I don’t really consider it a method. Pre-cum can get you pregnant.. or he might not pull out in time. I would never do this unless I was prepared to get pregnant.
