Query about withdrawal method.

Resolved Question:

Hello doctor - I have a question related to possible pregnancy. I have an average of 35 day cycle and my last period started on Feb 11 and ended on Feb 15. I had sex with my boyfriend on Feb 19th and he was wearing a condom and did not ejaculate inside of me. We also checked for any leaks in the condom later and there werent any. What is the possibility that this can lead to a pregnancy. I have been reading a bit about precum and he had not ejaculated atleast for 24hrs before we had sex. I am 2 days late for my period so am getting stressed out. Can you please tell me what is the possibility I could be pregnant. Also, is the method we follow safe - We use Condom + Pull Out on days when I assume I am not fertile. Please let me know. Thank you!

Thanks for writing to with your health concern.

Condoms have a failure rate of 3 - 18 % depending on the consistency of use.
Also, pull out method is not reliable again because of the pre-ejaculatory fluid ( precum ).
All said and done, a reliable method of birth control is more effective than the Condom + Pull Out method.

Please take a pregnancy test as you are overdue even considering the
35 day cycle length.

All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
