Coitus interruptus (Withdrawal method) Coitus interruptus, also referred to as ‘withdrawal’ or ‘being careful’ or ‘getting out at an earlier station,’ is still very widely used. It is a situation where by 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.
How effective is this method of contraception?
Withdrawal method is one of the forms of contraception; it has a limited degree of success. However, doctors do not recommend it because it is 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.
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.
Psychologically, coitus interruptus does usually lessen the pleasure of sex because the couple has to keep on thinking about the need for withdrawal.
In most cases, the female partner may 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 must not ejaculate inside the woman.
Be that as it may, withdrawing before ejaculation is undeniably an emergency solution that can be used by couples who would not 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 is 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. It is highly not recommended.
