What is Withdrawal (Pull Out Method)?
When a man withdraws his penis out of the vagina before ejaculation – the moment when semen spurts from the penis. Withdrawal is also known as coitus interruptus and the pull out method.
How Does Withdrawal Work?
Withdrawal prevents pregnancy by keeping sperm out of the vagina. Pregnancy cannot happen when there is no sperm present.
How Effective is Withdrawal?
Like all birth control methods, the pullout method is more effective when it is done correctly.
Of every 100 women whose partners use withdrawal, 4 will become pregnant if they always do it correctly. Of every 100 women whose partners use withdrawal, 27 will become pregnant if they don’t always do it correctly.
Couples who have great self-control, experience and trust may use the pull out method more effectively. Men who use the pull out method must be able to know when they are reaching the point in sexual excitement when ejaculation can no longer be stopped or postponed. If you cannot predict this moment accurately, withdrawal will not be as effective.
Even if a man pulls out in time, pregnancy can still happen. Some experts believe that pre-ejaculate can maintain enough sperm left in the urethra from a previous ejaculation to cause pregnancy. If a man urinates between ejaculations before having sex again, it will help clear the urethra of sperm and may increase the effectiveness of withdrawal.
Pregnancy is also possible if semen or pre-ejaculate is spilled on the vulva.
