Since the fact known to human
being regarding pregnancy, this perhaps the oldest form of barrier birth control
method. Here, man pulls out his penis from vagina once he realizes he is going
to ejaculate. It is very natural form of avoiding unwanted pregnancy. It, however,
requires lots of self-control as well as great understanding on one's body and
mutual trust and understanding between partners. It is reversible and does not
affect on the fertility of either partner.
Withdrawal method is known as
"coitus interruptus" in the medical terminology, which is the Latin word meaning
Withdrawal method effectiveness:
method has success rate of upto 81% i.e women who are doing withdrawal method
as their barrier birth control method for a year, 19 of 100 women may get pregnant.
Although study has shown that if withdrawal method is used perfectly, its effectiveness
can reach upto 95% but in reality, that perfect practice hardly happens. Failure
rate will be more than 30% in case of teens. It has high failure rate because
most men can't anticipate the time when they are going ejaculate. They also do
not have control when they reach on climax.
How to use withdrawal method
A couple who do not want pregnancy but yet not taking help of
birth control pills or patches and other birth control methods, must have a great
deal of trust, discipline and understanding between them while practicing "withdrawal
method". If pre-ejaculated fluid is present and man has not yet urinated from
his last ejaculation, pregnancy may occur even if he practices withdrawal method.
Male partner should urinate before going for intercourse. It is because sperm
may present in pre-ejaculated fluid if he has not urinated from the last ejaculation.
The urine will flush out any sperm present in the semen left in the urethra. He
must wash his penis and wiped away any pre-ejaculated fluid was seen on the tip.
If he is uncircumcised, he must wash and clean his full penis. At the time of
ejaculation, he must be in a good control to withdraw immediately from the vagina
so that no ejaculated sperm could penetrate into vagina. Before the orgasm begins,
male partner must "pull out" his penis. Ejaculation may occur even in the first
contraction of orgasm.
Shortcomings of withdrawal methods:
- High failure
rate due to lack of self control, understand of the body, timing and discipline.
This failure rate is very high among teems.
- High risk of STDs and HIV infection.
Pre-ejaculatory lubricant fluid may also have sperm in a very little quantity
but enough to inject STDs and even HIV infections in partner's body.
reliable method for protection against birth control because pre-ejaculated fluid
may contain sperm of the previous ejaculation, may cause pregnancy.
may not get full sexual enjoyment at the climax due to sudden withdrawal.
this is the least trustable method of birth control. It may not work with men
who do not have enough self-control, experience or who ejaculate prematurely.
It may not even work with teens and inexperienced couples. Withdrawal method,
however, used with other birth control barrier methods like using condoms or spermicides
may be highly effective against unintended pegnancy.
