A common question women ask is whether they can become pregnant if they use the contraceptive withdrawal method (also known as ‘pulling out’). The technique involves withdrawing the male penis from the female vagina prior to ejaculation to prevent pregnancy. The answer to the question partly depends on whether or not the couple uses the pull out method correctly.

Accuracy of the Withdrawal Method
The pull out method, sometimes referred to as the “withdrawal method” or coitus interruptus, is a technique that is sometimes used during intercourse to reduce the chance of a pregnancy.
Many doctors recommend that the method is very risky if you are actively trying to avoid pregnancy, especially since a small amount of pre-ejaculate sperm containing semen has been released prior to male orgasm and ejaculation. Even this small amount of sperm can still lead to pregnancy if you ovulate.
The calculated risk of pregnancy using the withdrawal method is assumed to be approximately 4% for couples who come out correctly each time (ie out of every 100 women whose partners use the withdrawal method perfectly each time, 4 will still become pregnant). For couples who do not use the technique correctly, which is much more common, almost a third or 27% will become pregnant (27 out of 100 women using the method will become pregnant).
How to Use the Pull-Out method correctly
Showing good self-control and being aware of timing is required for correct use of the withdrawal method. Men need to know exactly when they will reach the point where ejaculation can no longer be stopped or delayed. Carefully estimating this point of sexual arousal is required to pull out before ejaculation. But even a huge amount of self-control on behalf of your partner cannot guarantee that you will not get pregnant.
When you use the withdrawal method alone, it is specially important to note that pregnancy can still happen, even if your partner pulls out on time, because pre-ejaculate fluid may still contain traces of sperm. Pregnancy can also occur if sperm or pre-ejaculate fluid is spilled on the external opening of the vagina (vulva).
The withdrawal method can slightly reduce your chances of pregnancy, but it does not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases or infections (STDs and STDs). The use of a condom is the best way to reduce the risk of STD or STD.
Advantages of the Pull-Out method
Although it is one of the most risky forms of birth control, there are some advantages to using the admission method as a form of birth control, such as:
- Withdrawing is safe, easy to do and convenient for both men and women
- If no other form of birth control method is available, the withdrawal method can always be used
- No medical or hormonal side effects have been reported when using the pull out method as a contraceptive method
- The method requires no prescription
- Very cost effective because it is free
- Can make other forms of birth control more effective if it is used in combination with other birth control options
Disadvantages of withdrawal method(Risks of withdrawal Method)
That been said, using the pull out method as the only form of birth control has some major drawbacks and risks, such as:
- Risk of unwanted pregnancy
- Risk of exposure to or transfer of STDs
- Most likely improper use of the withdrawal method (especially among teenagers and sexually inexperienced men)
- Requires great self-control, practice and experience (and is still not guaranteed effective)
- Should not be used by men who experience premature ejaculation
Take Home Tips
If you are trying to conceive with extra contraceptives such as condoms, birth control pills (oral contraceptives), intrauterine devices (IUD), spermicidal foams, Depo-Provera injections or hormonal patches are all options that can be used in combination with withdrawal. If you are concerned about the protection against STDs, you should consider using condoms because they offer the highest level of protection for sexually active adults. Make sure you ask your obstetrician, doctor, or local health service provider for advice on the method that suits you best.
