Pull out method *eta

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
What has your experience been with it? Do you think it works as an effective form of birth control? Do you/have you used it?

To those who ended up pregnant, do you think it was from him not pulling out in time? Or just the method failing altogether..?
*this is for a paper I'm writing btw. I am currently pregnant, not from pull out. ;)

Got pregnant each time I used that method while not on other forms of birth control.

We used it when we weren't ACTIVELY trying (but it was okay if we did end up pregnant).  But I never got pregnant when he pulled out.  We also use it now just so I don't have to deal with the mess all the time.. lol.  (He's snipped.) 

I wouldn't say it works for everyone and wouldn't recommend it as the main form of birth control, but for us it did work pretty well.

In high school, I had sex almost daily (with the same guy) and we never used condoms. We only used the pull out method. I never got pregnant. In college, same thing. I didn't get pregnant until I tried. So it worked for me, for over 8 yrs. I dont think that is the case for most though. I think it's irresponsible and a silly concept. I was just lucky!

i did it for years, and didnt get pregnant, id say 3 yrs w my first bf. and my fiance and father of my children. we did it b4 we tried getting pregnant for 7 years. so in my 10 years of pull out method it worked for me

That's what we do to try to avoid pregnancy.
It can be just as good as bc IMO.
I see more women post about pregnancy from pill failure than pull out method failure.
It works for us, for years. No failure.

As you write a paper you know you should be looking for research based information right?

Pregnant 2x by pull out method, pulled out in time. Sometimes they can't even feel when there is a presquirt squirt, as we discovered once accidentally. I saw it with my own eyes, and he didn't feel a thing.
