I remember asking a couple in the consulting room about the type of contraception they were going to adopt since the woman just had a caesarean section. The man said he’ll just “pull out”.
This got me a bit worried and confused. Every effort to convince them about the cons of the withdrawal method was rebuffed.
Withdrawal is also called coitus interruptus or the “pull-out method”. It works, some of the time, by taking the p*nis out of the v*gina before you ejaculate.
The withdrawal or the pull out method of contraception is as old as man’s existence. Perhaps the oldest form of contraception. But pulling out at exactly the right moment every single time isn’t always easy for the average guy— it requires great self-control, experience, and trust, and as such, it is pretty unreliable.
Even if all goes smoothly, you still release a “pre-release” during s*x, which can hold a small amount of sperm—and all you need is one eager “swimmer” to make its way up there to spike your fatherhood risk significantly! For couples who rely on the withdrawal method, the chances of unwanted pregnancy is high.
Do you adopt the pull out method? We would like to know your thoughts on this.
