Known as the ‘pull-out method’ or the ‘withdrawal method’ this is definitely not a reliable method of contraception. Not only is this move difficult to time correctly, but there is a substance known as ‘pre-cum’ released before ejaculation which can contain sperm. If pre-cum enters the vagina then you can still get pregnant.
