  • Yes, I got pregnant this way at 44! LOL! In a perfect robot world I am sure that PP is correct abot the 96% accuracy. BUT! How often can you rely on a Man to do the right thing ever? What percentage is that? LOL!

  • Their site says it's only 73% effective if not used correctly every time. Pretty similar to not using any method at all, of course, since if you do it wrong once it completely negates all the other times you did it right.

  • This is an extrreemly old joke
    What do they call people who use the pullout method?


    Maybe PP just needs the added funds abortions will bring.

  • Considering most people don't get pregnant when they don't use any method at all, quibbling over 4 percent or 2 percent does seem rather silly. Reality is a lot of things have to happen just right to conceive and successfully implant under perfect circumstances. Anything you do to make that less likely will be very effective.

    The only guaranteed way to never get pregnant is abstinence. The only guaranteed way to get pregnant is...there isn't one. Everything else is just degrees in between. Unless STD's are a concern, the rest is hair splitting.

  • The Billings Method also works very well. To answer your question, no.
