Do you trust it? Do you use it? Have you ever used it?

I know what everyone says about the pull out method but that's what we use and I trust it. I've never gotten pregnant using the pull out method. I have a couple oopsie babies but they were conceived when he didn't pull out and we just chanced it. I can't take hormonal birth control. I've tried quite a few times and it always makes me really sick and gives me HORRIBLE migraines. And, I hate condoms so this is what we use. We combine this with watching my fertile signs and where I'm at in my cycle but we dtd nearly every day and I haven't gotten pregnant yet. LOL. Oh, should I go knock on some wood.

That's what we've used for the last 3 years. We didn't get pregnant with #1 till we started to try and #2 is a surprise but we decided to risk it on our honeymoon and didn't pull out. It's worked for us, dh has a lot of control and we've never had a close call with him not pulling out on time. I think we will do something else for birth control after the new baby is here, I can't so hormonal birth control but I can't risk getting pregnant too soon again.

I've never used it, but I've always heard it can be greatly effective. I have always wondered one thing though...where does your guy finish?

We did it for the longest time before we went into NTNP in 2011 for our first

We have always used it and have never gotten pregnant. I think it works pretty well.

My dh always finishes on my stomach or back area depending on the position. That's really the only down fall, there is always a clean up after for us.

That's what we did too.

I did reseearch on this because a guy in a group I belog to was being a jerk about anything other than sterilization or condoms for birth control. The stats show that in a committed relationship it is a very effective form of birth control. It doesn't work for "one night stands" or teens because of lack of control and commitment/understanding of the reasons pregnancy should be avoided. We use it at times. I also have a friend that is SUPER fertile and got pregnant even with her tubes tied and her husband having a vasectomy! The only form of BC that worked for them 100% (until she got her tubes re-tied and "burned") was "pull and pray".

We used it without an oops or scare for 6 1/2 years until we decided to try for another

That's always been what we've used, and we never had an oops. I think it's very effective if you do it properly. I have never had an interest in trying birth control pills or similar contraceptives.

Yes, it works if your SO has control and pulls out in time, than its very effective.

Honestly, the pull out method has never appealed to me. That's one of my favorite parts of DTD. I feel like pulling out would ruin it? Maybe I'm weird?
