hi has anyone used the withdrawal method around the time they are ovulating and become pregnant i have a ovulation calender which says im ovulating today and me and my husband had s_x twice last night and both times he pulled out the second time he was nt sure if he pulled out in time now im worried i could end up pregnant

Yes, you could get pregnant. The withdrawl method is the WORST method of birth control. Ovulation calendars only give you an ovulation date for the "typical" person. You, however, may ovulate, earlier, on the date, or later. It is not exact. I ended up ovulating about five days after the calendar said I would. Anytime you have unprotected s_x you run the risk of getting pregnant. It only takes one tiny sperm to get you pregnant and sperm are often released in small amounts of prec_m before ejaculation. If you do find out you are pregnant, I hope you will see it as a blessing. You are in a committed, loving relationship and a baby will change everything, but in a good way. If you find out you are not pregnant, you should probably find another form of birth control. Good luck to you!

Good luck to you and please let us know th outcome. I just posted because I am a mom of three also using the withdrawal method. I am not trying to get pregnant but not trying to hard not to either, allthough I do not think I can. Anyway everything I have read, withdrawal is a big gamble. If I am meant to have another child I will, if not I wont. I guess that is how to look at with this method!


I did this... - November 30

all the time around O. We didn't care either way because we were going to start ttc in a few months anyway, but I never got pregnant. I did get bfp on first month of trying though, so I wish you luck, and maybe this will make you feel a little better. good luck
