    Default Withdrawal method

    Does anyone else use the withdrawal method? It's been super effective for us and we've been using it for years. I always worry pretty much every month and this month isn't any different. I'm not really worried overmuch but we did something that I don't know if we've ever done. We DTD 2X in one hour and he didn't pee in between. Usually we make sure if we do that, that he pees in between to kinda flush out any sperm that might be still in the urethra but last night we forgot. Anyone know what the chance is that I could get pregnant from what little sperm, if any, would be leftover?

    We use that method and so far, so good I've also heard that about sperm hanging out if the guy doesn't pee in between BDing. I have no idea what the chances are, but I suppose it's a chance. Do you have any idea when you O'd?

    Dang girl 2x in one hour? Lol, that's awesome. We've used the withdrawal method for 4 years. I used to get worried every month, but now that I'm baby crazy, I'm the opposite...hoping for a miracle. There is always that chance! I know you've had baby fever lately, so I hope for your fever's sake that it happens for ya!

    Well it happened on CD 14 and I've had O pains and EWCM since CD13. I should ovulate today (CD 16) or tomorrow based on my usual cycle and indicators. It would definitely not be a great time for us to get pregnant but as Elizabeth said it's hard to not have baby fever about it. I feel like the chances are pretty low though. I mean what are the chances that a couple sperm carried through by pre-ejaculate would be able to make it ALL THE WAY to the egg.
