Pregnancy Prevention

 If he "pulled out" before he "came" I can't get pregnant right?
 
The withdrawal method, or "pulling out", isn't the most effective way to prevent pregnancy - and it offers no protection against sexually transmitted diseases. According to a 2008 study in the Journal of Contraception, the failure rate for withdrawal (the percentage of people who got pregnant while using this method in a given year) is about 18%. While the failure rate for the pill and condoms is 1% and 2% respectively with perfect use. The male partner's pre-ejeculate also contains sperm, and that can be released before he comes out. So if you are truly serious about preventing pregnancy, stick with a more reliable method like the pill, injection, the IUD (intrauterine device), or condoms.
