post #21 of 29

i've never gotten pregnant using withdrawl during my fertile period.  from what i read in 'taking charge of your fertility' withdrawl is much less effective if the man has last ejaculated within 24 hours, so i only use withdrawl if he hasnt.

Yeah I have gotten pregnant twice using withdrawal/NFP method-- both ended in m/c but it can happen-- however its safe to say the last time I got pregnant was 7 years ago and my DH and I have been safely using that method for 6 years with no pregnancies so far.

wow i am amazed this method has worked so well for some people. amazed!! i think if this is your primary prevention method, you just need to have the attitude that if you get pregnant, it's ok. we ended up with a suprise baby and now are so happy it happened that way.

I have used the withdrawal method for about 10 years with no pregnancies, and without charting, so not sure how often it happens during or around ovulation.  

-- I haven't tried to get pregnant yet, though, so I'm not sure how much is related to my fertility rather than his accuracy  :)

We've concieved twice in one year using withdrawl.  The first was an early loss and we were pregnant again immediately after (I think that I must have ovulated 8-9 days later).  I would still use the method if we were open to #5 but at this point we are done and planning a vascetomy.  If you are going to use it, I'd recommend condoms on iffy days if you really do not want to have a baby..

I think this is good advice!  I am totally okay with having an oops baby (well, there would be drawbacks, but I would embrace it) so I feel comfortable using this method of BC.  I have heard that it becomes less effective after you've had one pregnancy....

Yes, when we did it incorrectly! He went back in after pulling out when we were holding each other afterwards and that's all it took!

Yep, it's how I have my daughter... we had also been drinking so his withdrawel was probably not so well timed. I have to say that after we were pregnant, he admitted that having to pull out all the time was ruining sex for him... It was effective for about a year and half though, when we avoided it or used a condom around ovulation. Then we were drunk, and I was ovulating and there you go...

Supposedly if the man still has to "finish himself" afterwards, it's just as effective as other methods of barrier BC. Also, if you have sex 2 times in a row, he needs to pee in between.
