Sex using withdrawal method

“my partner and i having sex together 4x this month only…we use only withdrawal and i know that withdrawal is not effective…my problem until now i didnt have period its already 3rd week and thats my menstrual day. i took one pill only but not the day of contact and i stop it bec my partner says that its only for contact to take pills…if there’s possibility for me to get pregnant?”

A: Withdrawal is not an effective method of birth control. I do not understand what kind of pills you are referring to. For birth control pills to be effective, they must be taken everyday at the same time, regardless if someone has sexual contact that day or not. If you are not using a reliable method of birth control, there is a potential for pregnancy.

What is the chance of me becoming pregnant?

“Exactly 8 days ago i was at my boyfriends house and we ended up having sex but we used the withdrawl method . I think i was ovulating at that time . What is the chances of me becoming pregnant?”

A: “Even though you and your partner practiced the withdrawl method there is still a chance that sperm may have entered your vagina. If you were ovulating at the time and a sperm cell was able to reach your egg there is a chance that you may become pregnant. If you are concerned about pregnancy and you miss your next period, make an appointment at Family Planning for a pregnancy test or purchase a test over the counter. Always remeber to use protction correctly and every time you have sex.”
