Is Withdrawal method safe ?

Coitus interruptus, also known as 'withdrawal' or 'being careful' or 'getting out at an earlier station,' is still very widely used but is it safe?

Withdrawal method

Coitus interruptus, also known as 'withdrawal' or 'being careful' or 'getting out at an earlier station,' is still very widely used , particularly among the teenage or young couple who don't wants to bother to go to medical shop or have less knowledge about sex education.
Some studies finding shows that withdrawal method is still used in countries like USA and Uk , now u can imagine situation in countries like India, which comes 2nd in population index
Quite a lot of young people still employ it sometimes – particularly when they get involved in a 'one-night stand' and don't have any condoms available.

Coitus interruptus is Latin for 'interrupted intercourse'. What happens is that the man pulls his penis out of the vagina just before ejaculation. Generally, this means that he 'shoots' onto the woman's thigh or abdomen. Although this is an unreliable method, it's certainly better than using nothing at all.

If you employ withdrawal every time, then at least you're doing something to avoid conception. But couples who rely solely on coitus interruptus do tend to have unwanted pregnancies

American studies have suggested a failure rate of 15 per cent to 28 per cent per year. Also, both the man and the woman can get very frustrated by having to keep interrupting things at the last moment.
Repeated intercourse: if you want to have intercourse again on the same night, the man should first go and pass urine (to flush out any sperms), and then wash his penis carefully to get rid of any seminal fluid.
The woman should also wash herself, if the man has ejaculated over her body. She needs to take care to wipe her partner's fluid away from her vulva.

Does it work?

So, as a method of contraception, it has a limited degree of success! However, doctors do not recommend it because:
  • it's easy to fail to withdraw early enough – so that the first squirt actually goes into the woman
  • there may perhaps be sperms present in the 'dew drop' of fluid that a man produces when he is excited, but well before he actually ejaculates.
That last point is currently a contentious one. For many years, doctors said that spermatozoa are present in the 'dewdrop'.
But a couple of small studies carried out in the last 20 years failed to demonstrate any sperms at all in the 'pre-come' droplet, and some doctors began saying that it could not cause pregnancy.
However, in 2011 an important research paper was published by fertility experts in Hull and Princeton, NJ. They tested 27 men, and found that 37 per cent of them had motile (active) sperms in their pre-ejaculate. The rest did not. So clearly, some males do have the potential to cause pregnancy with that first little dewdrop.
It has recently been theorised that sometimes the dewdrop could actually contain sperms from a previous ejaculation.

Psychological aspects

Coitus interruptus does usually lessen the pleasure of sex because the couple have to keep on thinking about the need for withdrawal.
And the female partner may well feel angry or unsatisfied about the fact that her man never 'comes' inside her. He too may feel frustrated, because of the fact that he mustn't ejaculate inside the woman.
However, withdrawing before ejaculation is undeniably an emergency solution that can be used by couples who wouldn't mind about a pregnancy or by those who feel that they really cannot employ any other kind of contraception.
In areas of the world where it's difficult to get contraceptives (for instance, war-torn countries) withdrawal has often proved fairly effective.
However, for people who have access to sensible, modern methods of contraception, coitus interruptus is a poor alternative. We do not recommend it.
