Re: way tmi but I have to ask

We called it the "pull and pray method" as well, we were very aware that is really is not effective. So, we were thrilled when I turned up pregnant (this was with DD).

I'd DEFINITLEY test or see your OB/MW and have them test or have them order a blood test.

How late are you?

Re: way tmi but I have to ask

I am irregular but I should have gotten it by now. My mom and all of my sisters have already had it for a week and I have not. We always get it within a couple days of each other. I don't know.....lol. We were going to wait. I told my husband that it wasn't a good idea unless he wants another baby. He says come on, just for a few minutes....lol!

OMG....that is so funny!!!!

that is pretty much how it happened with us this time too. I use the contraceptive film. dh says do you have it in, I said no, and yet somehow it happened. I warned him but he didn't listen.

Re: way tmi but I have to ask

Hey, check out my "pull and pray" baby's ticker in my sig. Actually, our "method" of choice is "pull and put a condom on". Needless to say it's not very reliable.

Period.

Seriously..if you are opposed to hormonal birth control or "artificial" BC methods, that's fine, but "pulling out" is NOT a method...use a REAL BC method, such as NFP or FAM if you are looking for a "natural" BC option.

Saying that "pulling out" is a birth control method is like saying that eating cheesecake right after sex is a bc method....neither has much chance of reducing your likelihood of pregnancy.
Actually, it IS a BC method, and a pretty good one for many people. See this chart:

http://www.contracept.info/risks.php

And this one:
http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pre...olfailure.html

Only 2% higher failure rate than condoms with perfect use according to the first website.

So, yeah, if your DH doesn't withdraw in time, you would fall in the 27% failure rate, which is rather high. But for those men that can control their ejaculation, it is a very good form of birth control, better than spermicides alone, for example!
