So my husband and I have been using the pull out method after our son was born. We never had any problems with that. Our son is 10 months old. Im breast feeding but have had my period every 2 months. Suppose to get it in MAY. Will be checking soon though.

But have anyone breast feed and used the pull out method and still got pregnant?

The pull out method is never a good way to prevent a pregnancy and you can still get pregnant while breast feeding so if you honestly don't want to get pregnant right now use contraceptives.

I agree with the others. Sperm can be released before he climaxes so it's not a good form of contraception.

While B/F you can go on the mini pill or use condoms or even get a Mirena.

ANYTIME you have sex without protection, expect to get pregnant. BFing, although wonderful, is not a birth control.

Shelley, is that a real response????? Cause you know precum still has sperm, and you are directly inserting it into a vagina.

I would consider yourself lucky and use contraceptives from now on. I have a friend that had a baby and thought she couldn't get pregnant while nursing. About a month or so later she got pregnant with twins. So she ended up with 3 babies all born within the same year. I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't want to chance it.

Considering that there are people on every form of birth control that have gotten pregnant... I'm sure there are quite a few babies born because of the breastfeeding and pull out method. Those two things may help prevent pregnancy, but I wouldn't count on them as being reliable. Basically saying.... if you don't really want to be pregnant right now, but would be ok if you conceived then I see nothing wrong with continuing this way. If getting pregnant right now would devastate you... use something a bit more reliable.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Uh yes! The pull out method is the worst type of birth control. But if you can't afford condoms or birth control it's the only one you have. If he doesn't get out in time and any gets inside you then there is a chance. Now who ever told you breast feeding has anything to do with it. Don't listen to them again. Breast feeding has NOTHING to do with getting pregnant.

I have a friend who tried that and she now has 4 children under the age of five. You can definitely get pregnant doing things this way. Pre-cum still has sperm in it so you can get pregnant just from that, plus breastfeeding can interfere with conception but it is not a reliable method.

I didnt mean to sound like a B. Im so sorry sometimes my fingers think before my head does...

If anyone likes to know to spice things up in the bedroom we pull out for some naughty reasons... and saying that if we have a 3rd child it will be in GODS hands if we got pregnant using the pull out method.

Thanks everyone for your input♥

Above all else I'm glad to know that any child that is brought into your world will be a welcome one.

Why does it matter what others do? We pull out because we want to. Yes we are leaving it in Gods hands. Whatever plans he has for us. We are not taking birth controls and what we do is in our favor. If we have another child then so be it because that will be a beautiful miracle.

But I think most of you guys are getting out of the topic here and Im just simply asking has ANY, not someone you know, but personally YOURSELF have gotten pregnant off of the two "method"

and obviously I know when a penis enters a vagina pregnancy can occur. I wasnt born yesterday.

I'm sorry and I'm not intending to poke (no pun intended) at but they now teach the younger generations about this stuff in sex education classes or health class... If there is the internet for asking others about their experiences on such a method, maybe it should be that you give yourself a little sex edu crash course yourself. As soon as a man achieves an erection, his "army men" are all geared up and ready to go! Just fighting their way to the top.... If you were to watch a slow mo and close-up of a man let's say "taking care of himself", you"ll notice a cum-like substance sitting or even dripping from his penis... that substance my lady friends is in fact pre-cum....all men have it... Now let's imagine for a moment that the slow mo and close up vid u just watched was inside of you instead of inside that dude's hand.... Where do you think his swimmers are headed? yup, they're off to see the wonderful wizard of all... You're genius and very waiting egg! Just beacuse you're breastfeeding, doesnt mean you're not ovulating... Just because "sally", "joan" and "betty" on the internet shares their successful b/f and p/o method doesnt mean they have an MD... Do some self research on the male reproductive system (discovery health and such channels have amazing programs about reproduction on them) AND talk to your GYN in a quick hurry if you don't honestly want to get preggers right now!! And that is exactly what I learned in sex edu in high school and thank goodness for that!!! Just saying. :)

The pull out method, aside from being messy...eeewwww, is also not satisfying for either party involved. I got pregnant a year and a half after my daughter was born and had NOT been menstruating.
If God's plan is for you NOT to get pregnant anytime soon, than so be it. And without trying to be disrespectful to your religious view, God's plan doesn't always concide with what we want.

My beautiful daughter was conceived via the "pull out method".

THE greatest event of my entire life.

Her birth... not the pulling out. ;-)

Both of my kids are blessings, not accidents. With my daughter we knew full well what we were doing. My son was a surprise baby. I would NEVER EVER in my life call them an accident. I am not pregnant and we are going to still be doing the pull out method. We are leaving the decision in GODS hands. If we are meant to have another one than so be it. But we are not going to be using any contraceptives. Thanks for everyones input but the question here was asking if anyone has had gotten pregnant using both "methods"

All it takes is a minute drop. Even if it occurs while he is pulling out. If you are fertile and do not want to conceive use a condom....the best ones are Lambskin. You can feel everything but you are still protected. They are more expensive than latex ones, but they do feel quite good as you get the real sensation of skin on skin.

The other suggestion is a diaphragm. They are a bit messy because they require prophylactic gel, but insure safety.

Yes, it is possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding and using the pull out method.

Not only can the 'pull out' method be very risky.. where is the pleasure for you?

pull out method is not effective. You just use something else.
I know of some people who got indeed pregnant, so it is possible.

I didn't do this, but my daughter did, and got pregnant again when my granddaughter was 6 months old.I'd talk to my gynecologist if I were you. Just saying...

I got pregnant when my son was 6 months old...I was breast-feeding him, had not started mentruating again, and had been on the mini-pill. We went away for a week, and I forgot to pack the mini-pill. We had sex once in that week. But once is all it takes. Breast feeding may reduce your chances of conception, but it sure as heck does not eliminate them! Especially if you're already menstruating again. The pull out method has a big fail rate. If you don't want another child just yet, then be safe and use a better form of birth control. (And don't forget it if you go on holiday lol)

Breastfeeding MAY provide some protection against pregnancy for the first 6 months or so, but if you're menstruating, you're ovulating. The pull out method has a very low success rate, so if you don't want another baby right now, you may want to think about other methods to prevent it.

My friend got pregnant two months after she had her baby with the withdrawl method. She was breastfeeding and did not get her period so she thought she was safe. Apparently not.

Is this a real question? Of course the pull out method is not the most effective form of birth control. Even good birthcontrol (pill, condoms, IUD) is not 100% effective.

My daughter was 10 months old, I had not had a regular period, was breastfeeding and got pregnant! BF is NOT birthcontrol at all!

Nurse Judy here, Yes thousands of women have.There is million os sperm in the pre ejulation period. Worked OB for 18 years and have helped deliver OOPS.(:) Breast feeding can sometimes help prevent pregnancies. Key word sometimes.Take it from a poor keyboard person and get another prevention or just Hope.

#3 was conceived with the pull out method. Not very confident on that it works. I suggest you find another method.

Yes, this is risky business! If you don't want to get pregnant, use protection, IUD, condom, diaphragm, something! Having kids should be a choice, not an accident!

I had my fourth baby 6 years ago. Breastfed her and used the pull out method. Still not pregnant and still pulling, so it seems to be working for us.

The pull out method is VERY ineffective. There are plenty of contraceptives that are safe during breastfeeding. I highly recommend that you check into some options. You are at your most fertile right after giving birth, chances rise to a very high percentage of getting pregnant at this time. My mother got pregnant with my sister when I was 2 months old doing that. My sister and I are 11 months apart as a result. If you are trying not to have a child again so soon, I recommend using multiple contraceptives, such as a condom and the pill until the pill is effective in your system. The depoprovera shot worked great for me and my husband. Its a shot that you get every 3 months that stops you from ovulating, which for most women also stops their cycles all toether. There are many options that are available. I do also recommend that you research the options, decide which are best for you and if you have insurance what it will cover. If you do not have insurance, many health care centers will offer contraceptives including the pill for free or little cost.

every man has pre-ejaculate, it is the body's natural lubrication so there is always a chance you could get pregnant. Statistics say the pull out method is 70% effective IF done correctly. As far as getting pregnant while brest feeding, I know quite a few people who breast fed and have kids who are 10,12,14 and 15 months months apart. If your having periods pregnancy is possible.

more then a few people have I'm sure. even condoms are not 100% so using nothing is no where near the best way to go.

breastfeeding can throw off your periods and such but, my doctor had me back on the mini pill by my 6wk check up as there is still a chance of pregnancy

Trust me someone out there has, whether they see this and respond or not. Its not a reliable method so eventually it isn't going to work. The other Michelle explained it well.
