A shocked young woman staring at a pregnancy test because she didn't think she could get pregnant using the pullout method as a form of birth control

The Pullout Method

1 in every 5 women get pregnant using the pullout method.​

Would you do something if you knew you had a 1 in 5 chance of dying? Well, 1 in every 5 women get pregnant using the pull-out method and when you get those 2 lines on the pregnancy test, you may feel like your life is over!

Using the “pull out method” as a means of birth control requires a lot of self-control, and is not particularly effective. The precum fluid could contain sperm and the “pullout” has to be timed perfectly; which in the heat of the moment is not always the first thing on either of your minds.

The pull-out method also does not protect either of you from sexually transmitted diseases.

The “long” and the “short” of it girls is that it is YOUR responsibility to make sure YOU don’t get pregnant, or anything else. Girl, I know you want to please him, BUT it’s YOUR body, YOUR choice so it’s okay to say NO!
