As several questions about withdrawal have popped up here on the site, to make it easier for the friends of the Changing Diapers, I decided to demystify the subject! But, after all, what is withdrawal? Well, withdrawal is the famous “take off” before ejaculation in sexual intercourse. Withdrawal is used by couples who do not want to become pregnant and who often do not use other contraceptive methods simultaneously with it. Now you ask me: can intercourse get pregnant? I say what obstetricians say: Yes!
Some say that if it is done correctly and at the right time, it can be effective. Yes, there may be, but know that you will be counting on luck when you do. Normally, the penis releases a lubricating secretion when erect, even before sexual intercourse, and in this lubrication there are many free and bouncing sperm ready to enter the female cavity and have a party!
I have heard several girls who said that their partners hold ejaculation very well, but what they may not count and also not feel, is that there is always an escape of semen before the ejaculation itself. So, if you are about to enter the fertile period, or even during it, do not use this method as a contraceptive, okay? In short, withdrawal does get pregnant , and if you don’t use another contraceptive method and don’t want to have a baby, I advise you to use another way that is more effective than this.
Tabelinha As Contraceptivo
Table, table … This is only effective for those who want to get pregnant! I don’t particularly trust this method and I can tell you why. Contrary to what some experts say, I have already witnessed several cases in which the table failed, sometimes because the cycle is irregular , sometimes because the woman did the wrong calculation. As a contraceptive method, withdrawal works, but only if it is right and, on the days indicated, maintain total abstinence. To be more sure of your fertile period and your ovulation in order to better plan withdrawal, ovulation testsare an option. The use of ovulation tests will help to indicate when your fertile period is approaching so that you can know the right time to have intercourse.

How to Make the Table Method?
A cycle can vary from 21 to 35 days, and we know that ovulation occurs between 11 to 16 days before menstruation , which is practically halfway through the cycle, right? However, there is a fertile window that should be avoided when you do NOT want to become pregnant, and it occurs a few days before ovulation and lasts until one day after it, totaling, on average, 6 days. The sperm can survive up to 05 days inside the woman’s body, if the conditions are favorable for that, and, therefore, there are great chances of conception to occur if the couple has sexual intercourse during this period of the fertile window.
Mucus of the Fertile Period
Do you know that mucus that we see when we are in the fertile period? It has nutrients that feed and strengthen sperm . So, avoid unprotected sex, as they can get pregnant. Now, if you try to get pregnant, do the opposite and drink lots of water to make this mucus more abundant. You can also use lubricating gels that are fertility friendly and will increase your chances of conception. The Famivita company developed FamiGel , a lubricant that, in addition to playing the role of fertile mucus, is composed of minerals that nourish sperm so that they can survive longer inside the woman’s body.

Withdrawal outside the fertile period offers less chance of becoming pregnant, since the chances of conception at this stage are very low. However, remember that the table and withdrawal are subject to failure. So, talk to your gynecologist to adopt the best form of prevention and always use a condom!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
