    Do you/ have you ever relied on this method as a birth control? Has it been successful?
    I understand it is risky, just wanted to hear others from a practical view

    Interestingly, I heard that the rhythm method (which is obviously not the same) is 90% effective IF done properly. I don't see the point in it though when you could just use proper contraception.

    "Proper" contraception > withdrawal. It famously screws things up for people and isn't fantastically reliable. I wouldn't try if I was you, just asking for trouble.

    Yes a couple of times but only sort of in combination with the rhythm method, so 3-4 days before my period starts. Only when theres no other option though and my circumstances are in such a way that getting pregnant wouldn't be bad, im in a long term stable relationship, my partner has a good job and i am towards the end of my degree.

    Don't use it as your primary form of contraception. I've used it when there wasn't an alternative, so I guess it's better than not taking any preventative measures if you've not got a condom, etc. But I still wouldn't advise it because I've heard many horror stories. Think I was just lucky! :rolleyes:

    Is this thread started by the girlfriend of the guy complaining about his girlfriend 'pulling out' this morning and going to a psychology revision session instead?

    As someone who had a lot of promiscuous and not very intelligent friends during my school years, I can tell you that no, it is not effective, that NHS nurses get quite snippy when you go to get the morning after pill for the third time, and that abortions are grisly and unpleasant.
    I recommend the pill, condoms are ugly and nasty smelling things in my opinion

    It works perfectly fine. In principle. Not against STDs though, but neither does the pill and people have sex without a condom with the girl on the pill all the time. Myself included.

    But guys are lazy and won't pull out in time/properly half the time. If you fully pull out before you shoop da whoop and get finished off with another method, so don't pull out mid-jizz you're fine.

    There is a tiny risk is that if you've got sperm left over from some other time in your tubes 'cause you havn't taken a leak.

    don't you get the rhythm method wrong? isn't it supposed to be safer straight After your period? (women want sex more before it for a reason)

    Also, I've heard if people do it for several years without getting pregnant they have problems with reproductive functions. What do you think are the chances?

    nope, sperm lives for up to 5-7 days and your egg survives for about 2 days, your egg is released i think about 5 days after your period, something like that anyway.
