 Withdrawal Before Ejaculation As Effective As Using Condoms: Study
A new study has indicated that the old "pullout method", pulling out just before ejaculation, works nearly as well as condoms in preventing pregnancies.

The study, titled "Better than nothing or savvy risk reduction practice? The importance of withdrawal," appears in the June edition of the journal Contraception, reports CBS News. he authors find:

"If the male partner withdraws before ejaculation every time a couple has vaginal intercourse, about 4 percent of couples will become pregnant over the course of a year. However, more realistic estimates of typical use indicate that about 18 percent of couples will become pregnant in a year using withdrawal.

"These rates are only slightly less effective than male condoms, which have perfect- and typical-use failure rates of 2 percent and 17 percent, respectively."
