my husband and i have been successfully using this method for the past 16 months, so far so good. i really think it's one of those things you should only use though if a possible pregnancy wouldn't completely devastate you.

So do all you ladies use the pull out method while you are Ovulating?? I have really not paid attention about when we DTD using the POM and so I am not sure if we just don't have sex on the ovulation day.. Anyways, do you do any other Precaution not to get Preggo? (Chart, condoms during O time, ( ETC...) ok thanks!

I watch cm and if I'm toward fertile we either abstain or dh wears a condom... usually, anyway. Occasionally he has a weak moment where he doesn't mind the added risk. I want more, he doesn't so i don't mind.

Modify this to 24 weeks, and that's me.

It worked for us for nearly 6 years, though. But he isn't the most fertile.

I've known many, many people who had babies because of withdrawal method.

I agree with PP who said it's not exactly TTC, but it's not TTA, either.

ETA: And yeah, it wasn't that he pulled out too late. He pulled out in plenty of time (5-10 seconds).

Well in your case of using it for 6 years, Me and my husband know that right before my period starts we don't use the pull out method we just let it fly!! did you guys have those time that you knew you were not fertile and let it fly? And it just might have been the key to you being pregnant. If I every got pregnant My husband would so blame it on that day before My period when we did the deed.. LOL so I wouldn't think that though.

#1 was concieved while using this method, but I was ovulating, and we did it anyway, and well, that was that. But I've used it successfully for 5 yrs (not counting my preg with ds2) and found it to work well, as long as I am breastfeeding and not ovulating. Of course there is always the chance it might fail ... and well that would just be a shame! ... hehe.

Nope, he was SO strict about it, I guess from years of habit... even right before or right after my period, still would withdraw. (After I found out I was pregnant, and we stopped with the pulling out, he even took a little while to remember that he didn't have to pull out anymore, hahaha).

I never thought much about fertility, though, and had no idea where I ovulated (although, I was 28-day clockwork, so I'm guessing around day 14 or whatever the norm is).

Basically, we'd agreed to have kids but not WHEN we would have kids. So it was an attitude of "we're going to do this kind of half-@ssed prevention, but if it happens, it happens."

We've used it for 3 years now (used condoms for the first year of our relationship), I've never been pregnant.

I think this method can work perfectly for some, for others it's chancy. I would be thrilled to have an oops (even though we're not at all TTC, and would have to rearrange things quite a bit if a baby was coming into the picture). But, we know we want children eventually. It's just that I am still very young and we aren't totally living together yet..

If I was actively trying to avoid pregnancy, no way would I be doing this!
