Has the pull out method worked for you?

I know a few couples who it has worked for. Has it worked for you or the complete opposite? Have you ever gotten pregnant while using the pull out method? Would you say it is reliable?

  • If you really don't want to be pregnant, don't use it. However, there was a study that was looking at whether or not the HIV virus was in pre-ejaculate in gay men. I don't recall what the conclusion to that particular question was but they did notice that the sperm that was in the pre-ejaculate was few and far between and they weren't "healthy". So, effectively, you can't get pregnant with pre-ejaculate. However, it is imperative to make sure that he's "cleaned out" if he has ejaculated lately. So, make sure he goes pee before you have sex or just ask him if he has masturbated lately. And of course, your man needs to have the self control to make sure to pull out before he does ejaculate. I would also avoid sex during certain times of the month, just be safe.

  • After 4 kids it is now our only method of BC. I'd say it's working it's been a little over a year and we're still ok. Hopefully now that I've said that it won't jinx us :0...lol

  • My husband and I have always used the pull out method. We've been together and having sex for almost 4 years. As soon as I started letting him cum inside me, we got pregnant.

  • The PO method worked for us. There were several months after I had stopped taking my BC but before we wanted to conceive. We got pregnant when we wanted to. I discussed this with my doctor (thinking I would have to justify why I really don't want any BC after I have #2) only to find out that she and her hubby used it for 7 years with no ill effects.
