just out of curiosity...
what is the approx % that couples get pregnant using this?

i know that no matter what someone is always at risk during sex. but i read about so many statistics that its confusing. some say it works perfect and others beg to differ.

anyone on here get pregnant even if you used this perfectly?

Well, I honestly don't think there is such a thing as using this method "perfectly" since there is always a bit of pre-cum that a man produces during sex.
However, I used this method for 6 months with my current boyfriend, and for almost a year with my ex husband and never got pregnant.

Always a risk but my late husband and I used this method our entire marriage with no "accidents". We were married 9 1/2 yrs.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

I got pregnant with my 2 year old this way. We were not trying to get pregnant, though.

we've used it 4 years total and never once gotten accidentally pregnant on it. It's an awesome method! You have to do it on time, every time!

I can't account for it's accuracy as I don't practice it... although I do have a friend who got pregnant using that method. I really recommend charting as a more reliable form of contraception with the added benefit that you can enjoy sex completely and not have to worry about cutting the finale short

me and my husband have been doing this since Gavin was born he will be 1yrs old next month. Although we never really had sex during ovulation or I wasn't really paying attention as to when I ovulate. There is a possibility you could get pregnant doing this method if your ovulating or around your ovulation.

Thank you Alex and Aidens mommy for my siggy!
