Thanks ladies. I’d read some articles that the pullout method is actually 96% effective, but I get nervous because immediately after he pulls out (from behind me) I feel liquid and how do I know no drops went in? And my cycle is now perfect 28-day regular. Maybe from now on I’ll just avoid during my fertile window- or at least pull out further in advance (where you finish off via oral or something).

Sansa85 : Woah, sounds like a lot was going on. I don’t know about you but I sure judge less when people are just honest.
vanessalynn22 : I am sure you will be fine. I will keep my fingers crossed for a happy and healthy pregnancy for you and I hope you have the most wonderful wedding. Look at the bright side, when you look at your wedding photos you will know that your little one was with you, even if no one else knows! That’s kind of cool.

One in five women get pregnant from the withdrawal method. I would avoid the fertile window all together if you want to do this method. FAM combined with withdrawal would probably give you more success

“Google told me I can’t get babies this way, so I’m fine.” Okay.

sunflower188 : or just use actual birth control – the pill, condoms, implant, injections, IUD…
You’ve been with this guy for less than 4 months, you don’t know if he’s trustworthy (but I’m hoping you at least know his sexual health), yet you’re trusting him to make the right call. What if he wants kids and is deliberately pulling out late? Also at four months are you even exclusive? Is he still sleeping with his (ex) wife? You’re opening yourself up to a whole host of potential sexual health problems, that could impact not only you but your child too. Pullout method is for when you’re ok with an oops baby, not when 96% is close enough.

vanessalynn22 : I was 12 weeks pregnant at my wedding (thought I was 8 weeks but found out later I was farther along). I had the style where it was fitted but flared out mid-thigh. I don’t think you’ll have an issue. If you have a corset back you’ll be fine for sure. 3mo along is not very far, most women don’t show much or at all by then. If they “show” it’s just bloat. The uterus does not even start to come up out of the pelvis until 12 weeks

sunflower188 : pull out method is about 78% effective
You have a 4month old and are being extremely careless. I think you should get an IUD (mirena is great) but at least use condoms. I have used withdrawal method (though I also temped and charted as well), but I was in a long term relationship and it was in between my kids. When I 100% did not want to be pregnant I got an IUD. FYI- both of my kids were the result of having sex 1 time. So all it takes is one sperm. TBH is sounds like you want another baby with how careless you have been acting.

loz24 : dont jump to conclusions with the less than 4 months idea. 😂 if I remember correctly she may have been having wonderful sex with this new man at 8/9 month pregnant!

pocahontas28 : I think you are correct

How are you confirming ovulation? Or are you just guessing?

sunflower188 : Girl, you are nuts. Unless you are temping and charting and a whole lot of other things it is nowhere near 96% effective, as PPs have posted. Keep doing what you are doing if another baby is what you want right now. Why so against birth control? How many baby daddies do you want? It makes no sense at all.
ETA: to answer your question, YES, I would be running to the store to get Plan B.

Fun fact, approximately 30% of men have semen in their pre-ejaculate.
Yes they literally did a study on this.

pocahontas28 : in that case, I really hope OP was using condoms and has moved on to withdrawal method and didn’t put her sexual health at risk when she would have to deliver a baby a few weeks later.

Unfortunately, people have tried telling OP how reliable the pull out method is before, but she doesn’t care to listen…

Pull out method is great if getting pregnant is not a disaster. Get a plan b if you really don’t want to get pregnant.
Also there is a plan b on the market that can be taken up to 120h after intercourse. So the 72h time window is not the maximum anymore.
