Anonymous asked: Ive heard that withdrawal method doesn't work mostly because people don't do it properly so it leads to accidents. I would know that's how i got pregnant with my son. Also breast feeding doesn't work as contraceptive either because it may stop your period but you can still get pregnant. I would just like to see your opinion on that?
Here’s the stats according to health professionals on those methods of contraception:
- I’m using the withdrawal method, I make sure that I pull out well before ejaculation and never ejaculate near the vulva, and I make sure that I’ve urinated at least once and it’s been several hours since my last ejaculation so that sperm isn’t present: 15% chance of pregnancy
- I’m using the withdrawal method incorrectly: 24% chance of pregnancy
- I’m using breastfeeding perfectly, my baby only drinks my milk, I will stop after 6 weeks or if I start menstruating, I feed my baby every 4 hours during the day and every 6 hours at night: 1% chance of pregnancy
- I’m using breastfeeding but not perfectly: 9% chance of pregnancy
As you can see, breastfeeding is incredibly accurate if you do it correctly.
