    Well, one of my close friends used it… and now has twins so… no. It is the worst “method” you can do! Pre-cum is VERY high in sperm count so you can just get pregnant with that!

    I chose “other” because when he doesn’t use a condom (rarely) he will pull out…however, I have also been on BCP’s for years, so that’s our MAIN method, no matter what else we do. I wouldn’t be able to just use the “withdrawal method” on a daily basis and keep my sanity. But sometimes we don’t have condoms, or we’re in the shower, or whatever. But, I’m very good w/ taking my wonderful pills.

    Good god, no. My sanity would take a serious hit. We don’t use condoms, but I’ve been on birth control pills for eight years and am excellent about taking them on time.

    No withdrawal method here.  But we don’t use condoms either.  We’re pretty much risk takers, I guess.

    @AmeliaBedelia: same here! I’ve been on oral contraceptives for 4 years and we almost always use condoms anyways. When we don’t Fiance will pull out. I don’t really consider it “pull out method” though because if I wasn’t on birth control it wouldn’t be an option.

    Yes, but more as preference than as birth control.  I am on the ring, which is really the main method, but I have some pain issues (maybe a mild allergy to him…) if we don’t use condoms / pull out.  The fact that it’s actually moderate effective is nice to know as a secondary method, but I wouldn’t rely on it alone.

    Yes but as a backup with other methods. Our main methods are condoms or the sponge and fam. I figured all of those together would be almost as effective as hormonal birth control since I can’t be on it.

    There was a huge post about this before.  It is effective when used properly (both partners know and trust one another and themselves/ their bodies, are not using alcohol or drugs, are experienced.)  It works 100% for me and I have used it for 11 + years.

    The withdrawl method ON ITS OWN I would not trust as far as I could sling it. However, FH and I do use a combination of withdrawl + condoms + NFP (in terms of guestimating the times when I’m most fertile, and avoiding sex then OR always withdrawing). However, we never engage in penetration without condoms, because I’m off the pill right now for health concerns, and my stupid GP doesn’t want to give me an IUD.

    At one point in time I used the withdrawl method. I’m lucky it worked. But my fiance has been fixed, so I no longer have to worry.

    MEEEEE!!!!  (LOL).  I couldn’t vote using any of the choices bc they didn’t describe me.  But we use it and it works for us.  I used it w first husband and it worked as well.  When we wanted to get preggers, we did. 


    *disclaimer* Not for everyone.  It does work for us.

    No. It astonishes me that people think the withdrawel method is an effective form of birth control.
