Just curious if you use the pullout method?

How effective was it for you>?!How long did it work and did you decide you wanted to get pregnant or it just happened?

  • Back in the day maybe and got lucky, but you are playing with fire when we do this. What I know now I wouldn't chance it.

  • we used the pullout method for 3 years and I didnt get pregnant....then BAM it happened but it ended in a mc....but its been 2 years since then and nothing....so it is pretty effective...it really depends on the person i guess...

  • My family has a name for women who use pullout...."mom!"

    If you're going to do that, back it up with charting. In fact, if you use "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler, you'll never have to do pull and pray again because you will know to the DAY when it's possible to get pregnant...and you just DON'T have sex on that day.
