Do You Think I Am Pregnant?

Pullout pregnancy

I've just discovered this board and posted this in another one but feel this one is probably more appropriate. We've been using pullout forever with no pregnancies. I know it's not reliable but it's what we choose to do. We had sex 2 times around when I was ovulating, he pulled out but maybe a bit later one of the times (it's hard to say for sure). I haven't been having any of my normal pms symptoms which is what made me question whether I could be pregnant (no tender or swollen/full breasts which I usually get right around or after ovulation until my period is midway done, no headaches, no bloating). Today is the first day I've had a little bit of nipple sensitivity and a tiny bit of outer breast tenderness. I'm really tired but also on vacation and haven't stopped so it could be from that (I'm on cycle day 28 and I ovulated around cycle day 19). So my question is, has anyone ever properly (he pulled out with good timing) used pullout and still ended up pregnant?

Yes dear you can get pregnant. My husband and I have been using the 'pull out method' for about 8 years. And exclusively. As in no condoms or any other form of bc. We literally got pregnant the very first month after we got married and decided he no longer had to pull out! Then immediately went back to pulling out after that baby. Then we decided it was okay if we got pregnant again and boom got pregnant on the 2nd month of not pulling out. So IMO it is effective if your hubby is really good about knowing when it's time. Side note I actually read an article the other day about how the 'pull out' method can actually be as effective as other forms of birth control IF your partner has a good sense of when he is about to orgasm and pull out with plenty of time. Apparently for some men it's really hard for them to determine when and they can't get it out in time. But I feel like a read an article at one point that talked about how some men's pre-cum has active sperm and some don't? Or some have less? I don't know, it may have been a bunch of crap, but even if it is true, how would you know which category your SO falls under anyway? I feel like if someone REALLY doesn't want to get pregnant then they rely on a more reliable form of birth control. Even if someone says they don't want to get pregnant just yet, but they rely on the pull out method, I feel like there must be something inside of them that wouldn't be overly upset about a pregnancy coming about accidentally. But that's just my observation/opinion. :) You do you!
