If you don't want to get pregnant you're daft to do this. Absolutely daft.

Oh sorry I've just seen this is conception. So I'm guessing getting pregnant would be okay? grin

Are you waiting for a full cycle, as advised by some midwives, so you can date the pregnancy? If so, it's not a disaster if you conceive. Otherwise, no.

That's the number one lesson they teach you in sex Ed I think!

Thanks everyone!

We arn't using it so as to definately not get pregnant. We are in the right position to have a baby so it wouldnt be the end of the world!. I used to take a strong pill and for quite a long time without taking breaks so i was told it could take a long time to get back to normal, and tbh i am a complete control freak and i would go POAS crazy if i had a long cycle! So its more personal preference to try and wait for a pattern in cycle length. We were using condoms but i hate them! It just seems like its a lot more complex then they told us at school to make a baby so i thought better to ask the opinion of MN instead!

You're a better woman than I am if you can stick to withdrawal when pregnancy would be a welcome outcome

But anyway - diaphragm might work?

It's bloody hard for most of us to get pregnant when we are attempting it with gusto, let alone using the withdrawal method! But I still wouldn't recommend it as a form of contraception or anything.

My sister got pregnant whilst using the pull out method. I really wouldn't advise it if you don't want to risk a pregnancy

Me and ex used that method when we planned no.3. I stopped taking the pill in March and planned to wait for it to clear my system and ttc properly after April to avoid a Christmas baby... No.3 is 10 tomorrow, I got pregnant within a week or so of coming off the pill, lol.

Just don't worry about it - if getting pg is your ultimate aim then relax, enjoy the sex and what will be will be.

Yes it happened to me. A colleague had done it for years and never got pregnant so I thought it would work for us hmm
We used withdrawal for about 3 cycles and then I got pregnant. He always pulled out in time but it must have been the Pre swimmers that did it. It was a very happy surprise. Subsequent planned pregnancies were conceived on 1st of 2nd cycle so very fertile.

Easy answer- yes. I currently have a 5 week old.
