my boyfriend and i had sex but he with drawl before he ejaculated do you think there a high risk of being pregnant
Withdrawal (AKA pulling out) is a way of keeping semen away from the vagina. But for withdrawal to work as well as possible, you must do it right every single time. That means always pulling out BEFORE ejaculation, and always making sure to ejaculate (cum) away from your partner’s genitals. Pregnancy can happen when ejaculate or pre-ejaculate gets in your vagina or on your vulva. The best way to make the pull out method effective is to use it with another type of birth control (like the ring, pill, or condoms). This way, if there’s a slip up, you’re still protected.
Accidents happen. So if you use withdrawal for birth control, think about keeping emergency contraception (aka the morning-after pill) in your medicine cabinet, just in case ejaculate (cum) gets in or near your vagina. Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy for up to 5 days after unprotected sex.
Condoms are a great method to use with pulling out. Not only will they prevent pregnancy in case you don’t pull out in time, but condoms are the only way to stop the spread of STDs during sex. You can also practice withdrawal while using condoms to learn how to pull out in time.
