  • if you have a pretty regular cycle it should be fairly accurate.
    We use condoms because I am too freaked out about getting pregnant again at this point

  • When you say "natural" you mean charting? That in itself is a legitimate form of birth control. If one is having sex during the charted fertile time and then trying to use pullout, that's a game of Pregnancy Roulette. Pullout itself really is NOT a good method of birth control if you're serious about not getting pregnant.

  • "family planning when you dont have sex when you ovulate.."

    That would be Natural Family Planning. And if you're not having sex around the ovulation date, then pullout is basically pointless but quite legitimate.

  • Are you talking about the rhythm method? I only think it is legitimate if your are in a long-term or marriage type situation where you can accept the increased chance of pregnancy over other BC methods.

    It is really scary when someone who is not in permanant relationship and who does not want pregnancy uses rhythm or pull-out. It is just not a smart choice.

  • In my opinion you are asking to become pregnant.
    Pull Out is NOT in any way shape or form a version of birth control.
