I'm 5 1/2 weeks postpartum and my hubby and I out of the blue FINALLY decided to have sex. We then realized we had no condoms and he used the pull out method. How effective is this?
Please give me your thoughts and opinions!! I'm terrified but want pure honesty

  • The pull out method is not safe. I got pregnant twice from it. A man cannot tell when pre cum is being released. I wouldn't suggest it. Even if it didn't happen right away, it would eventually. If you don't want to be pregnant get on something.

  • Not a good choice for BC. I got preggo with both of my babies using this method.

  • It doesnt work. If your Breast feeding woman tend to not ovulate and you have to ovulate to get pregnant. But that isnt even 100%. Go buy your self a pack of condoms.

  • Its worked for me and hubby for years. I'm allergic to latex and family history of cancer and heart probs so pull out is all we can do

  • Remember, after having a baby, you're pretty fertile too.

  • Thats how I got pregnant. Never using the pull out method as BC again

  • Science!

    Condoms have a 2% failure rate and withdrawal has a 4% failure rate when both are used right. New study. Your hubby will love this study. Mine does.
